Registration Open: DHO Workshops at NUIG

The DHO is pleased to offer a three-day series of workshops in collaboration with the Moore Institute, NUI, Galway. These will be of interest to humanities scholars who wish to learn about text encoding, manuscript encoding, and digital resources useful for research and teaching in Irish Studies.

‘Text Encoding with the TEI’ will offer two concurrent workshop strands in text encoding for both beginners and intermediate practitioners. These two-day courses entitled ‘From Text Encoding to Digital Publishing’ and ‘TEI for Handwritten Texts’ will run on Wednesday, 7th and Thursday, 8th April. Both will focus on the theories and practicalities of creating electronic scholarly editions utilising the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines, the standard in the field. They will be led by experts in the field of text encoding: Dr. Susan Schreibman, Mr. Kevin Hawkins, Dr. Malte Rehbein and Dr. Justin Tonra. Registration is required to participate in these workshops.

‘Using Digital Resources for Research and Teaching in Irish Studies’, which will take place on Friday, 9th April, will offer two half-day sessions . Participants may register for one or both of the workshops. The morning session, ‘Integrating Digital Content into Teaching Practices’ will focus on how one can integrate the wealth of primary and secondary resources now available into the field of Irish Studies in the classroom. The afternoon session, ‘New Research Practices using Digital Content’ will introduce participants to a number of freely available tools to transform and, indeed, deform data to discover new patterns, new themes, and new insights.

For more information and instructions on how to register for the above events, please follow the links below to their respective event pages. Please note that places are free but limited. They will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis numbers so early registration is advised.
