Sheffield 2010-12-13: Beyond the Facsimile

Found thanks to dm-l: at http://digitalmedievalist.wordpress.com/2010/10/18/beyond-the-facsimile-rich-mod els-of-late-medieval-and-early-modern-texts/ you can read i.a. this information about the Beyond the Facsimile: Rich Models of Late Medieval and Early Modern Texts conference:
On 13 December 2010 Sheffield Hallam University, in association with the University of Victoria, will host a one-day symposium entitled “Beyond the Facsimile: Rich Models of Late Medieval and Early Modern Texts”.

It’s concerned with doing more, and doing things better, with our digital surrogates of books and pictures from the 15th to the 17th centuries. We’ve gotten very good at taking pictures of impressed papers, inscribed parchments, and painted canvases, but computer models do not have to be merely pictures.

The programme can be found at http://gabrielegan.com/BTF/ . From this:
11.30am-12noon James Cummings (University of Oxford) "Interrogating and Accessing Digital Scholarly Editions"-

John Bradley and Stephen Pigney (King's College London) "Images and Text: Towards an Understanding of the Early Modern Illustrated Book"

Eugene Giddens (Anglia Ruskin University) "The Death of Digital Editions"

And once again from http://digitalmedievalist.wordpress.com/2010/10/18/beyond-the-facsimile-rich-mod els-of-late-medieval-and-early-modern-texts/ :
The meeting is open to anyone who wants to hear the papers and coffee and a free lunch will be provided to all who email the organizer, Gabriel Egan (mail@gabrielegan.com), by 13 November. (It is quite acceptable to simply turn up on the day without giving advance notice, but then you can’t have the free lunch.)
