(With apologies for cross-posting.) I'm happy to announce that registration is now open for three upcoming TEI-related workshops offered by the Women Writers Project and the Digital Scholarship Group at the Northeastern University Library.
For more information and to register, please visit:
This seminar will introduce participants to text encoding with the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines. Through a combination of hands-on practice, presentation, and discussion, participants will work through the essentials of TEI encoding and tackle topics
and issues including:
• basic document structures and encoding strategies
• representing revision processes, physical document details, and editorial perspectives
• representing contextual information about people, places, and organizations
The TEI Customization seminar will introduce participants to the central concepts of TEI customization and to the language (a variant of the TEI itself) in which TEI customizations are written. Good customizations capture the project’s specific modeling
decisions, and ensure consistency in the data, while retaining as much interoperability and mutual intelligibility with other TEI projects and tools as possible.
Familiarity with TEI and XML is assumed but no prior experience with customization is necessary.
*********************** Introduction to XSLT Northeastern University, January 12 and 19, 1–4pm; January 13, 10am–1pm Cost: $150
For those who may be in Boston already, we are also offering a multi-week version of our introductory XSLT seminar in several three-hour sessions. XSLT is a crucial tool for those working with the TEI, both as a key part
of any XML publication system and also as a technology for manipulating and managing XML data. As a programming language that can be used to transform XML data into other formats, it is immensely powerful and also comparatively approachable for those already
familiar with XML. This seminar will provide participants with an understanding of the essential concepts of XSLT, focusing on examples and use cases from TEI data in the humanities.
Familiarity with TEI and XML is assumed but no prior experience with XSLT is necessary.
