We held a two-day TEI-XML workshop/seminar on April 21st and 22nd in the CDH PC lab and we filled the 25 available workstations! The workshop was led by Julia Flanders and Syd Bauman of Brown University’s Women Writers Project. The workshop was designed to explore the role and significance of the text encoding in current digital scholarship, aiming to give participants a thoughtful introduction to the issues and practices surrounding the creation of scholarly digital texts. It also provided an introduction to the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines, the widely used international standard for creating rigorous digital texts for humanities research. The seminar combined hands-on experimentation with discussions of encoding theory and strategy, editorial perspectives, publication methods and tools, and the changing shape of digital research. Participants had the opportunity to explore practical questions about planning and running digital humanities research projects. This workshop was sponsored by the Breslauer Professor Fund.
