Beyond Word: Using LaTeX to Publish Translations of Philosophical Texts

LaTeX is a mark-up language, used predominantly by math and science scholars to more elegantly present equations and other mathematical arguments. Duke graduate student Bryce Gessell uses it to generate multiple editions of translated philosophical texts. At this talk, he'll talk about how he uses LaTeX, why it's particularly useful for translation work, and how he got started. Join us to learn more about the benefits of using a markup language instead of a word processing program, to gain greater control over the presentation of textual research.
