TEI @ Oxford Summer School 2010

TEI @ Oxford Summer School 2010


The TEI @ Oxford Summer School is a three day course introducing the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) for encoding of digital text. It combines in-depth coverage of the latest version of the TEI Recommendations for the encoding of digital text with practical workshops on related technologies. It
includes an introduction to mark-up, explanations of the TEI Guidelines, and approaches to publishing TEI texts. Practical exercises expose you hands-on experience of a wide range of TEI customisation, editing, and publication.

Each day will also include a number of afternoon 2.5 hour parallel workshops on related technologies and topics. These will include TEI Publishing; TEI for Language Resources; Transforming TEI with XSLT; TEI in Libraries; Creating a TEI-based Website with the eXist XML Database; and Genetic Editing: transcribing
documents, transcribing the process. There will also be optional surgery sessions for those who wish to consult with TEI@Oxford about their particular projects or encoding issues. There will also be guest lectures from Digital Humanities experts familiar with the TEI talking about their own projects, including C. Michael Sperberg-McQueen (co-editor of the XML Spec and one of the founding editors of the TEI).

If you are a project manager, research assistant, or encoder working on any kind of project concerned with the creation or management of digital text, this course is for you.

The course runs from Monday 12 July – Wednesday 14 July, 2010. The course runs from 09:30 – 17:30 each day in our fully-equipped computer training rooms. Lunch and refreshments are included in the course fee.
