An intensive two-week institute and follow up workshop for 30 humanities scholars on the application of new methods for annotating textual sources for digital editions and digital corpora of historical languages. The institute would be hosted at Tufts University.

Tufts University proposes to host an intensive two week, in-residence institute in the summer of 2018 for 30 humanists on the application of new methods for annotating textual sources. Support will be offered for on-campus housing, meals, and travel to and from Tufts. Participants will have the opportunity to apply the new techniques to their own sources materials; collaborate with others on a wide range of source materials; discuss challenges and results; set and evaluate project goals; and integrate annotation work into the classroom. The proposed workshop builds upon experiences from, and work subsequent to, “Working with Text in a Digital Age,” a 2012-2014 NEH IATDH project and the on-line seminar, Sunoikisis Digital Classics, which has introduced the proposed topics to a virtual and international audience. A two day follow up workshop will be held to expand upon the topics and results of the institute. Project output will inform new Sunoikisis Digital Classics curricula.
