The EarlyPrint Project & Jack Mayer

October 9, 2019

Jack Mayer was part of a team of rising sophomores and juniors that spent the summer on the collaborative curation of texts in the EarlyPrint Project, which has been generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Some of the more learned texts in that project include Greek words and phrases that were purposely ignored in the original transcriptions. He transcribed those words and phrases from digital facsimiles of the original printed editions. This was a tricky task since the conventions of Early Modern Greek orthography differ from modern practice, especially with regard to accents and breathing marks.
