Digital Editing and the Medieval Manuscript Roll (DEMMR) represents a collaborative effort in the study of medieval manuscript rolls, scrolls, and fragments, along with the digital tools that can help to facilitate this study.
DEMMR has conducted a series of workshops at and beyond Yale. Training goals include digital editing and TEI markup, the paleography and codicology of medieval rolls and fragments, and project-based collaboration in the digital arena. These strands combine in the design of the workshops: participants work closely with one another to transform newly learned skills into a concrete digital artifact, and so prepare themselves to take on future digital collaborations.
Digital Editing and the Medieval Manuscript Roll has been awarded Yale Digital Humanities Lab Workshop and Software Development Grants to support both training events and also the development of a tool for viewing the TEI-encoded manuscripts.
