The Role of TEI in Large Projects

The workshop will address how TEI (the language of the Text Encoding Initiative) fits in to larger Digital Humanities projects. No prior experience with TEI is required. To ensure the quality and efficiency of the workshop, we’ve limited the number of attendees to 15.

Day 1: Overview of TEI as editorial best practice; sustainability, interoperability & library archiving; how to write the TEI into grant applications; and code peer review.

Day 2: Project planning and customization of TEI for use in local projects, using  Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada and other Digital Humanities encoding projects as examples.
