Welcome to the eScripta blog. This is a ‘work in progress’ blog associated with eScripta, the Digital Humanities team within the Scripta project at Université Paris Sciences et Lettres. It features regular discussions from members of the project team and selected external contributions. Articles comprise a mixture of presentations of work in progress, discussions of methodological challenges, and notices of future events and related news. The target audience is those in Computational and Digital Humanities and (Historical) Document Analysis, including related specialisations such as Computational and Digital Palaeography (modelling and describing script, OCR and HTR, layout analysis, and so on).
