A Miranda workshop, September 21 – 22, 2018

The Folger will host a two day workshop occasioned by the launch of Miranda, the Folger's digital asset platform, which will be the foundation of the library's future digital projects. Participants will gain behind-the-scenes access to the platform, hear from Folger staff working on the project, and consider how the platform will serve as a model f or early modern research, education, and exploration.

We seek expertise from those working with digital texts, transcriptions and annotations, multimedia material, and project management. Participants will join small, collaborative working groups and provide guidance to the Folger for current and future development. Conversations will be framed in teh context of current tools and the trajectory of digital scholarship in early modern studies, with a keen eye towards efficacy and practical use.

This workshop is jointly held by the Folger Digital Media & Publications and Folger Institute divisions, and is generously supported through an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant for the construction of the Miranda digital asset platform.

More information about the conference program will be forthcoming in spring 2018.
