Working with TEI Simple and its Processing Model
Wednesday, May 27th 2015 9:30-17:30
IT Services, University of Oxford, 13 Banbury Road, OX2 6NN Oxford
Do you work with collections of early-modern and modern printed material encoded in TEI or support people who do? Do you struggle with transformations from TEI to publication formats?
Are you interested in how TEI Simple can help you process your documents and document your publishing choices?
Come and learn how to apply the TEI Simple processing model to your data under the guidance of TEI SIMPLE experts. Check if you can achieve your publishing goals within a TEI Simple infrastructure.
We will give a basic introduction to the rationale behind TEI Simple and the tools that have been developed, and then spend the rest of the day working through participant’s material and texts from TEI Simple reference corpora.
The goal of the workshop is to test the TEI Simple framework on real life projects and with real editors, assessing not only whether it is complete and powerful enough, but also how easy it is to use for editors and developers working with TEI documents.

TEI4LdoD: Textual Encoding and Social Editing in Web 2.0 Environments
Ontologies, Data Modeling, and TEI
Vienna Summer School on Digital Humanities
Description: Traditional research in the social sciences and humanities is challenged by the emergence of new methods and tools that allow us to gain and compute more knowledge integrating various data sources. At the same time, our human experiences and our ways of learning and knowing are increasingly mediated.
Peripheries, barriers, hierarchies: rethinking access, inclusivity, and infrastructure in global DH practice
Digital Humanities engages in many alternative scholarly forms and practices, and thus positions itself as a channel for exploring and challenging how social and institutional constructs shape traditional and digital academic discourses. Yet DH itself contains many non-neutral practices and is far from barrier-free. Digital Humanities practices, tools, infrastructures, and methodologies often embed a variety of assumptions that shape what kind of scholarship gets made, studied, and communicated; how it is represented to the world; and who can participate in that making and communication. A truly accessible DH goes beyond technical standards and provides people and communities of different abilities, genders, sexual orientations, languages and cultures–and of varying levels of access to technology and infrastructure–the capacity to shape and pursue scholarship that addresses their own interests and needs.
TEI Hackathon at DH2015: Building Tools for TEI Collections
The TEI Consortium is sponsoring a Hackathon at DH2015 on 29 June 2015. To register for the Hackathon you must first submit a brief application at http://tinyurl.com/tei-hackathon-dh2015 prior to registering for the ‘workshop’ on the http://dh2015.org/ website. You’ll be notified by 15 May (if not before) of your acceptance on the hackathon.
The Guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) are widely used for creating resources, but there is little standardisation across multiple projects for querying, searching, and analysing TEI-encoded texts. Developers unfamiliar with the TEI often approach the development of TEI processing systems either with trepidation or ignorance of potential complications. This unconference-style Hackathon is open either to developers with very little TEI experience (but significant programming skills) or experts in the TEI (with a little programming experience), or people who have both. It is not a training workshop!
There is no charge for those attending this day-long workshop, but you will be expected to work in groups to program something useful. Applications to join the Hackathon should be completed online http://tinyurl.com/tei-hackathon-dh2015 at before 1 May. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by 15 May. Late applications will be considered if there is space.

noun: methodology; plural noun: methodologies
a system of methods used in a particular area of study or activity.
Forty years on from the advent of digital humanities computing, there is a flood of case-study work that explores specific instances of computational methods (e.g. close and distant reading via textual analysis, visualization methods for social networks, etc) being developed and then utilized within the digital humanities. Yet, despite this cross-pollination of methodology to the humanities, little has been done to discuss methodology outside of the project-based context in either the contemporary or future contexts. We know the specific results of particular methods within a given project, but much less about how those processes and workflows would function outside of that singular dataset or specific area of study. Several questions arising from current practice remain unanswered: Can Digital Methods fully realize the promise of humanities and arts-driven inquiry when confronted with complex datasets? Is Digital Methodology in conflict with efforts to conduct micro or local level analyses as it encourages the use of “Big Data” and other large-scale longue durée-type analyses? Does Digital Methodology offer its own problematic system of assumptions? What grounds have humanists ceded to scientists? What impact does this have on the tools created and the future of Digital Methodology? How should we train the next generation of scholars to deal with complex cultural records, and to interrogate and argue for tools suitable for humanities inquiry? This special edition of the International Journal of Arts and Humanities Computing (IJHAC) seeks submissions from scholars who explore what the future of Digital Methodology will be ten, fifteen, twenty or even fifty years in the future.

We are collecting data for a research paper on digital humanities pedagogy, and would be very appreciative of any contributions. We are surveying and interviewing instructors as well as surveying students, so if you have taught or taken a class about digital humanities, we want to hear from you!
Our research will investigate DH curriculum through the perspectives of students and faculty. We will examine how DH is taught and learned in various departments at both undergraduate and graduate levels of study. Interviews with DH instructors and students will provide a framework for understanding the nascent DH curriculum. This qualitative data will help open the dialogue between students and faculty, providing a platform for sharing practical tips for improving DH pedagogy and curriculum.
If you are a DH instructor, please take our survey here: http://goo.gl/6DqciN
If you are a DH student, please take our survey here: http://goo.gl/voephZ
As a token of our appreciation, survey participants will be entered to win one of ten $5 Starbucks gift cards.
Please feel free to distribute this message as widely as possible.
