Subject: TEI by Example updated, and call for new advisory board members

Following the 2020 revision of the TEI By Example tutorials (https://teibyexample.org), the TEI By Example International Advisory Committee is looking for new members. Are you interested in TEI and XML? Do you work in Digital Humanities, or any of its aligned disciplines? Do you wish to contribute to a community initiative in this area? Are you looking for advisory committee work to contribute to the service area of your academic CV? The Committee is particularly interested in hearing from ECRs and those in the early stages of their academic career, and wishes to increase the diversity of voices on the International Advisory Committee.  

This is a voluntary role, where you would be expected to contribute only a few hours per year, to give the project team some pointers on the tutorials and their development and provide advice when required. For example, what type of information we should be providing in an updated version of the toolkit (https://teibyexample.org/tools/software.htm)? Committee members also help to promote the tutorials in their own professional networks.

The IAC appointment will be for four years, in the first instance, and there will be one yearly committee meeting, most likely online. If you have any queries about the role, please contact Professor Melissa Terras ([hidden email]), who would be happy to answer questions.  

If you would like to be considered for the TEI By Example International Advisory Committee, please send an email to [hidden email] by Monday 26 October 2020, with the following attachments: 

  • Your CV (Please use a current version of a CV - we do not require any particular re-formatting for this call). 

  • A cover note stating your interest and experience in TEI, XML, or Digital Humanities. 

We will endeavour to reply to everyone who has expressed interest by 13 November.
