Spectral RTI is emerging as an important tool for Digital Humanities and has become an essential tool for scholars working on ancient manuscripts, particularly for those working on recovering illegible texts and deciphering palimpsests. During this two-day workshop, participants will be introduced to the basic techniques, methods, and best practices for Spectral RTI, and will have the opportunity to produce images using Spectral RTI. The workshop will be led by Todd Hanneken and Ken Boydston. All necessary imaging equipment for the workshop will be provided.
As space in each workshop is limited to 20 participants, applicants must agree to participate fully in both days of the workshop. Applicants are asked to submit an explanation of their interest in the workshop, specify which iteration they wish to attend (British Library or UCL), and to describe any objects to which they have access and of which they are interested in producing images during the course of the workshop. To apply to participate in the UCLDH iteration of the workshop, please enroll via Eventbrite by 14 June 2019.
