Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) markup language workshop
Start Date: 2/7/2014Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 2/7/2014End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description:
The TEI markup language, supported and maintained by the Text Encoding Initiative consortium, is a recommended standard for creating, editing, sharing, and analyzing texts in a digital format. Widely used by scholars in the humanities and social sciences, the standard is an XML-based markup language that allows scholars to represent the “structural, renditional, and conceptual features” of any document.

Open to any Tri-College staff and faculty members, the TEI workshop will introduce you to this popular standard for research and textual analysis through the hands-on encoding of a digitized letter from the College's special collections. The workshop will include: an overview of TEI and its current use in digital projects worldwide; an introduction to the TEI guidelines; a brief walk-through of oXygen, an XML editor used in the creation of TEI-encoded documents; and a hands-on application of TEI to a single primary document (the letter).

The aim of the workshop is to generate ideas for the potential use of TEI in your courses, in student-designed projects, or in your own scholarship. Some notable projects that employ TEI include the Folger Library’s Folger Digital Texts, The Mark Twain Project Online, and The History of the Accademia di San Luca, c. 1590-1635.
