Intensive Introduction to TEI
August 10-12, 2006
Brown University
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
