TEI Training Session: Encoding Literary and Cultural Documents in TEI
This training session will use a case study model to provide advice and
discussion on specific topics in text encoding, based on real-world
problems supplied by the participants. The session is aimed at those
responsible for designing their project's encoding system. It will provide
a valuable opportunity to take a focused look at a particular problem or
set of problems, in a group of knowledgeable peers guided by TEI experts.
Participants are expected to have some basic familiarity with the TEI. The
session will focus on the encoding of literary and cultural documents,
The session will last from 1 to 6 pm on Thursday, November 6. Each
participant will be asked to bring a problem or encoding challenge from
their own project. The session will begin with a general discussion of the
topics raised, followed by focused attention to each particular case in
turn. The instructors will address each participant's questions in depth
and also draw comparisons among the projects represented. The goal of the
session will be not only to answer the participants' specific questions,
but also to place them in the context of issues such as retrieval, data
interchange, and long-term project goals. Any issues that are still
unresolved at the end of the session may be discussed further with the
instructors via email.
The session can accommodate a maximum of 16 participants representing a
maximum of 8 projects, and will be led by two instructors. The instructors
are Julia Flanders, Director of the Women Writers Project and Terry
Catapano, a Librarian in Columbia University Libraries' Digital Program.
The deadline for applications is October 20, and applications will be
accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The fee for the session is
$75 for TEI members and subscribers, and $125 for non-members.
