Are you interested in early modern texts and learning more about the digital humanities? The Early Books Collective is once again looking for undergraduate students and all interested parties to collaborate with us in transcribing the 17th century text: The Booke of Pretty Conceites–very merry, and very pleasant, and good, to be read of all such as doe delight in new and merry conceites.
Join us every Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Vitale II Media Lab, Kislak Center, 6th Floor, Van Pelt Library. No registration necessary.
Working with the Early English Books Online (the EEBO database) Text Creation Partnership (TCP), you’ll decipher and transcribe this text by learning the TEI encoding language and, thereby, cultivate a valuable skill for work in the digital humanities.
Upon completion, we will be contributing our transcribed text back to the EEBO database and the Text Creation Partnership, which is fully and freely available for anyone to use.
Join us in contributing to this important project of creating an invaluable scholarly tool!
