Davy Notebooks Transcribeathon

If you're attending the British Society for Literature and Science (BSLS) Conference, join us on Saturday 9 April, 11am-12.30pm for an in-person Davy Notebooks Project transcribe-a-thon! We have 20 places available - please reserve yours today. The event will be held in Room G3 of the conference venue.

Over the course of this one-and-a-half-hour event, you'll hear more about the project from the team (including Professors Sharon Ruston and Frank James) and have the opportunity to contribute transcriptions of a previously untranscribed Davy notebook. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire or develop skills to read and transcribe early nineteenth-century manuscripts. We'll also have a limited number of print copies of the Ambix special issue 'New Studies on Humphry Davy' (2019) to give away on the day, on a first-come-first-served basis.

No prior experience or preparation is necessary, and questions/discussion will, of course, be very warmly welcomed. We hope to see you there!

Please note that all attendees must be BSLS Conference delegates, and that you'll need to bring your own laptop to participate.

If you have any questions, please write to us at davynotebooks at lancaster dot ac dot uk.
