Epigraphic Interoperability Workshops

Two joint workshops in collaboration with Heidelberg University (DFG request: 5,270 euros) to develop interoperability between the Epigraphische Datenbank Heidelberg (EDH), the Pleiades digital gazetteer, and the "born-digital" epigraphic publications conforming to the EpiDoc/TEI encoding standards.

The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (New York University), together with the Seminar fur Alte Geschichte und Epigraphik at Heidelberg University seek support for two three-day workshops. These events will bring together key staff members with a small cadre of external advisers to develop a comprehensive plan for interoperability between a growing suite of unique, essential resources: the Epigraphische Datenbank Heidelberg (EDH), the Pleiades digital gazetteer and "born-digital" epigraphic publications conforming to the EpiDoc/TEI encoding standards. It is our goal to establish both the fundamental prerequisites and a solid plan for incorporating EDH into an emerging, international cyberinfrastructure that will provide scholars and students alike with seamless access, visualization and relevance across multiple, discrete resources for ancient studies.
