The goal of the workshop is to train a community of contributors to mark-up aligned (or parallel) corpora in a way that could be plugged into the planned Indo-Tibetan Lexical Resource project and serve as source materials for the lexicographical study of classical Asian texts.

The first two days will introduce Humanities scholars to TEI, on the third day participants will start their own encoding project with assistance from the instructors.
