Overview of english courses:
- Encoding Text and Music (Sept 27) 
- Manuscript Encoding and Digital Editions based on MEI (Sept 27 to 28) 
- An introduction to ODD (Sept 28)

With best wishes from your organizing committee,

*London Digital Humanities Group Meeting*
*16 October 2012*
*5.15pm, Room G21A, Senate House, Malet Street, London*
*
*
The London Digital Humanities Group will reconvene for the coming academic
year, and we are delighted to announce our first meeting on 16 October:

*'Community Collection, Roadshows and the Great War'*

Dr Ylva Berglund Prytz (University of Oxford)

It all started as a small part of a digitization project. 'What happens if
we do this…?' The success of the Great War Archive, where the general public
was invited to share their WW1 memorabilia online, has led to other
projects, using the same model of combining an online collection with
‘roadshow’ digitization events. In this talk, we will talk about how it all
started, how it developed and what is happening now.

Ylva Berglund Prytz works for Oxford University Computing Services where
she is involved with the Great Writers Inspire (writersinspire.org/) and
Europeana 1914-1918 (europeana1914-1918.eu) projects. She has worked on a
number of different projects and services, including RunCoCo, What's the
Score at the Bodleian?, OpenSpires, British National Corpus, Oxford Text
Archive, OUCS web team and Intute: Arts and Humanities. She is a member of
the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology & Phonetics.

All are welcome. To confirm attendance please complete the form at
