DiXiT Coding and collation workshop
This repository hosts materials for the workshop Code and Collation: Training Textual Scholars, that takes place in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) from 2 through 4 November 2016. The event is part of the DiXiT network and is hosted by the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands. It brings together a group of international experts from the fields of textual scholarship and computer science.
The workshop engages with the theory and practice of semi-automated collation and provides an intense training in the open source collation program CollateX. Participants will learn how to prepare source materials, how to perform semi-automated collation using CollateX, and how to inspect and modify the results; they will acquire or improve computational skills relevant to textual criticism and in particular to the production of scholarly editions.
