Raffaele Viglianti joined the Department of Digital Humanities as a Postgraduate Research Assistant having completed a BA Digital Humanities at the University of Pisa (Italy). Contributions at Digital Humanities include the web delivery of several digitization and text encoding projects. During this time he also completed an MA Digital Humanities at King's College London (KCL) focusing on digital approaches within musicology. Raffaele is currently undertaking a PhD project at KCL under the supervision of Prof. Willard McCarty (Digital Humanities) and Prof. Roger Parker (Music). His research focuses on the poduction and publication of digital scholarly editions of music. The thesis builds around its casestudy: a critical edition of Carl Maria von Weber's opera Der Freischütz, for which Raffaele is collaborating with the Weber-Gesamtausgabe at the University of Paderborn (Germany). In addition to his work at Digital Humanities, Raffaele is an advisor for the Music Encoding Initative (MEI). This organisation produces guidelines for the digital representation of music notation documents with a focus on scholarly requirements. He is also the convenor of the Special Interest Group in Music of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). This Group focuses on addressing issues and delivering recommendations in the digitization of texts with music notation.
