Past Transcribathons

Transcribathon @ the Folger Shakespeare Library, 2015

Transcribathons are one of the centerpieces of our activities. EMROC organizes at least one event per year, with an international transcribathon taking center stage. Our next transcribathon will take place on 4 March 2021, in conjunction with the Wellcome Collection and the Royal College of Physicians.
