Developing a Protocol for Interpreting Medieval and Modern Orthography in the Hoccleve Archive's Collaborative Transcription Project
This panel presentation will bring researchers, librarians, project managers, and developers into conversation about challenges and opportunities they faced when administering transcription projects in multiple languages. We specifically designed this panel to include perspectives from DH practitioners in a variety of roles. This presentation discusses a project to interpret medieval and modern orthography in transcribing an early 15th century Middle English poem and its variants.
