Introduction to TEI
February 17 @ 9:00 am - February 18 @ 5:00 pm
Dissatisfied with Google Books? Curious about digital formats that can communicate scholarly ideas? This seminar offers an intensive exploration of scholarly text encoding, aimed at an audience of humanities scholars, archivists, and digital humanists. We focus on the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines, a magnificent but complex language for representing digital scholarship and the gold standard for rigor in digital texts. Through a combination of hands-on practice, presentation, and discussion, participants will work through the essentials of TEI markup and consider how markup languages make meaning and support scholarship in the digital age.
No prior experience is necessary.
Registration: $450 (students and TEI members, $300). Registration is free for members of the Northeastern University community. Register here by February 10, 2017.
This event will be held over two days: February 17 and 18, 2017.
