Transcribathon Thursday, April 9th

Are you taking your literature classes online this March and/or April? Consider introducing your students to EMPOP’s international community of transcribers—or join us independently for a day of fellowship and scholarship.

EMPOP is looking forward to hosting our fourth international transcribathon on Thursday, April 9th, 2020. Join transcribers in Australia, Europe, and North America—at least!—to continue transcribing Folger MS V.a.339 and Harry Ransom Center, Medieval and Early Modern MSS 79. We’ll be in touch with more specifics closer to the day. 

First-time transcribers may find the varied hands in M&EM MSS 79 an easier starting point, while more skilled palaeographers (and students of Latin) may enjoy the challenges of MS V.a.339. We have something for everyone!

Have questions? Want to join us? Email empopstars@gmail.com or tweet #EMPOPstars. As technology permits, we hope to come together by video and on social media during the day, but we are also happy to answer questions ahead of time if you are revising a syllabus or trying to figure out ways to evaluate these works. You may also appreciate some of the resources on our Transcribathons page as you plan.

Hope to see you soon!
