Intensive Introduction to TEI
August 10-12, 2006
Co-sponsored by the Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers
Project, in conjunction with Summer and Continuing Education at Brown
The Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers Project are once
again offering a three-day workshop on text encoding with the TEI
Guidelines. This intensive hands-on introduction will cover the
basics of TEI encoding, including a discussion of stylesheets and XML
publication tools, project planning, and funding issues. The workshop
is designed to help encoding novices get quickly up to speed on basic
text encoding, with particular emphasis on the transcription of
primary sources and archival materials. Humanities faculty and
graduate students, archivists, librarians, and digital project
managers will all find this workshop a useful background for a closer
engagement with text encoding theory and practice. The course will be
taught by Julia Flanders and Syd Bauman.
Attendees are encouraged to bring materials from their own projects
for discussion and practice.
Deadline for registration is July 14. The course fee is $425 ($475
after June 25), with low-cost accommodation available on the Brown
campus. To register, and for more information, please visit the site
