As those following the progress of DigiPal will be aware, an increasing number of projects are opting to study their corpora with the DigiPal framework (essentially, the database and a series of web-based tools for computer-assisted palaeography). SephardiPal is one of these “Daughters of DigiPal”, and is now so grown up that she is organising her own conference. How exciting is that? It’s a two-day conference, with the promise of plenty of palaeography on offer from the invited speakers who include:

  • Malachi Beit-Arié (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
  • Edna Engel (Hebrew Palaeography Project)
  • Judith Olszowy-Schlanger (École Pratique des Hautes Études, Sorbonne)
  • Colette Sirat (Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes)
