Call for participation: TEI seminar on manuscript encoding

Applications are invited for participation in an advanced TEI seminar on manuscript encoding, being held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, July 21-23, 2010, hosted by the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities.

Application deadline is March 1, 2010. Participants will be notified by March 12.

This seminar assumes a basic familiarity with TEI, and provide an opportunity to explore manuscript encoding topics in more detail, in a collaborative workshop setting. We will focus on the detailed challenges of encoding manuscript materials, including editorial, transcriptional, and interpretive issues and the methods of representing these in TEI markup.

This seminar is part of a series funded by the NEH and conducted by the Brown University Women Writers Project. They are intended to provide a more in-depth look at specific encoding problems and topics for people who are already involved in a text encoding project or are in the process of planning one. Each event will include a mix of presentations, discussion, case studies using participants’ projects, hands-on practice, and individual consultation. The seminars will be strongly project-based: participants will present their projects to the group, discuss specific challenges and encoding strategies, develop encoding specifications and documentation, and create encoded sample documents and templates. We encourage project teams and collaborative groups to apply, although individuals are also welcome. A basic knowledge of the TEI Guidelines and some prior experience with text encoding will be assumed.

Travel funding is available of up to $500 per participant.
