The University of Texas Libraries will be hosting a workshop on Integrated Spectral Reflectance Transformation Imaging(Spectral RTI) in cooperation with the Department of Middle Eastern Studies, the Jubilees Palimpsest Project at St. Mary’s University and MegaVision imaging. 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, leaders in the practice of Spectral RTI. All necessary imaging equipment for the workshop will be provided. Breakfast, coffee breaks, and lunch are included. The workshop is open to all interested faculty, graduate students, and staff affiliated with the University of Texas at Austin.
For more information or questions, please contact Dr. Jonathan Kaplan (Assistant Professor, Middle Eastern Studies) or Dr. Dale Correa (Middle Eastern Studies Librarian & History Coordinator, UT Libraries).
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, the Department of Religious Studies, the Department of Classics, and the Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies. This workshop is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
