Dear Humanists,

The conveners of the IHR Digital History Seminar are delighted to announce
our next seminar:

** Arthur Burns, Sam Callaghan and Patricia Methven -- Georgian Papers

The Georgian Papers Programme is an ambitious international collaboration
which sees the Royal Archives working with partners King's College London,
the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and William &
Mary to make freely available online the Georgian Papers held in the Round
Tower at Windsor Castle. The collection is huge, and to a considerable
extent unexplored and uncatalogued.

The project team is exploring new ways of working and collaboration between
archivists, academics in various humanities disciplines and digital
humanists in order to maximise the opportunities. In this talk, a
historian, an archivist and a digital humanist from the project will
jointly explore the challenges and opportunities the project presents.

They will outline the digital workflow of the programme, encompassing its
three technical partners and explain the functionality offered by the
collaborative workspace that is in development. Further, they will address
methods of transcription and metadata augmentation that support this

Session chair: Matt Shaw

Speakers include Arthur Burns, Professor of Modern British History and
