Dates: January 8-9, 2018
Location: Digital Scholarship Center
Instructor: Diane Jakacki, Digital Scholarship Coordinator
This two-day intensive workshop is designed for textual scholars who are interested in creating or enhancing a scholarly edition using text encoding standards. Over two days you will learn the principles of TEI, the text encoding standard used across the digital humanities for analysis, compilation, and presentation of texts. You will also learn how to outline a workplan for planning and editing your edition.
Increasingly, editors who work with individual and sets of texts are working in text-encoding environments to develop standalone editions, collaborate with colleagues on larger corpora, or augmenting print-published editorial work with digital materials. Genres include:
- belle lettres
- life writing
This workshop is funded by the Mellon Digital Scholarship Grant and is open to tenured and tenure-track faculty in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Participants will receive a $400 stipend. Space is limited, apply soon. Contact Diane Jakacki (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
