Dr Charlotte Tupman

Digital Humanities Analyst/Developer


Research Fellow in Digital Humanities

I engage in Digital Humanities research within the College of Humanities, undertaking original research, supporting existing projects and helping to design new bids. I work across all subject areas within the College, and am involved in training project partners and other members of staff in technologies that are relevant to their research.

My academic background is in ancient history, and I have a PhD in Latin Epigraphy.  As one of the authors of the EpiDoc Guidelines I am actively involved in the collaborative development of international standards for the encoding and publication of inscriptions and papyri in TEI XML, and I organise and teach EpiDoc workshops on a regular basis in the UK and abroad.  I served for eight years on the Steering Committee of the British Epigraphy Society and co-organised and taught for several years on the Practical Epigraphy Workshops. I co-organised the London Digital Classicist seminars from 2013-15 and served on the committee for the Digital History seminars from 2014-15.

I have worked in the field of Digital Humanities for the past decade, specialising in the analysis, encoding and digital publication of textual materials from ancient to modern. From 2006-2015 I was a member of the Department of Digital Humanities at King's College London, where my roles included lecturing, research, and project management. I was also Study Abroad Tutor for the department and Personal Tutor for a number of years. I took up my current position at the University of Exeter in July 2015.

I currently hold the position of Treasurer of the European Association for Digital Humanities, and am a Reviewer for the Pleiades Gazetteer of Ancient Places.
