    Abstract:
    Wheaton College (Massachusetts) and the University of Regensburg will bring together economic historians, scholarly editors, and technical experts to discuss and test emerging methods for semantic markup of account books. This bilateral project focused on Modeling semantically Enriched Digital Edition of Accounts (MEDEA) and includes three stages: At the summer 2015 meeting at the University of Regensburg, Project Directors will present models of semantic markup of accounts for discussion, critique, and suggestions from the invited experts. Subsequently, participants will produce examples as models for further testing and development of broad standards and cost-effective best practices for transcription, markup, and analysis of accounting records. During the March 2016 meeting at Wheaton College, principals will present results of digitization testing and discuss next steps for expanding the communities of practice employing these models in a wide range of historical financial records.
    Notes:
    A series of meetings by scholars from the United States and Europe to produce test cases to allow for the development of standards for transcription, markup, and analysis of historical accounting records for use in scholarly editions. The University of Regensburg, is requesting 37,435€ from DFG.
