Revision as of 08:09, 13 September 2019

A transcribathon is a community event running for a pre-determined number of hours (generally, 3-12 hours), in which participants transcribe and encode manuscripts, individually or in small groups, in the same room or across many rooms simultaneously.

If you are interested in hosting an EMMO transcribathon at your institution, please contact Heather Wolfe (hwolfe@folger.edu). EMMO transcribathons generally involve food, fun, entertaining manuscripts, transcription sprints, prizes, and an easy-to-use online transcription platform called Dromio. We tailor the manuscript content and the difficulty of the handwriting to the needs of the host institution, and offer a short tutorial in deciphering secretary hand if desired. You are welcome to adapt our one-page intro that we give out at transcribathons and share the Dromio Help page. ‎

Transcriptions from past and future EMMO transcribathons will be added to Early Modern Manuscripts Online.

Resources developed by EMMO partners for using Dromio during transcribathons:
