Spring 2017 conference.

Early Modern Manuscripts Online (EMMO) is an IMLS-funded Folger digital transcription and encoding initiative. EMMO will be the subject of—and occasion for—a conference on the impact of digital scholarship on manuscript studies as well as the impact that wider access to manuscripts will have on our understanding of early modern humanities. Sessions will address emerging scholarly trends and approaches, collaborative research projects, and genre-specific topics. Workshop sessions will introduce the EMMO corpus of crowd-sourced, encoded transcriptions and the new ways college faculty are using online tools to teach paleography.
