An intensive introduction to markup and the Guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI)

Instructor: James Cummings, Senior Digital Research Specialist for the IT Services of the University of Oxford

Description: This 1-day workshop will give a practical introduction to markup using the oXygen XML Editor, as well as an intensive introduction to the Guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative. This will introduce concepts of markup, XML, and the TEI framework before introducing the recommendations for how a variety of textual phenomena can be recorded. Special attention will be focused on the recommendations for the transcription, editing, and description of manuscripts and early-printed books, as well as the support for prosopography and information about places.

Prior Knowledge:
No experience with markup, XML, or the TEI is expected. Preparations: Students will be expected to download and install the oXygen XML Editor on their laptops, which they will need for the workshop. A trial license will be provided to students via email the week before the workshop.

Date: Tuesday, 19 January 2015
Time: 9:00am - 5:30pm (including a short break mid-morning and midafternoon, as well as an hour break for lunch)

Location: Room 617, Jackman Humanities Building, 170 St George Street

is necessary and attendance will be capped at 17. Please email the REED project manager, Carolyn Black, at ca.black@utoronto.ca by Friday, January 15 to register. REED will offer more workshops on digital tools in February and March.
