Methods Workshop: TEI workshop
Huw Jones (Cambridge Digital Humanities) and Yasmin Faghihi (Cambridge University Library)
The TEI (Text Encoding Initiative https://tei-c.org/) is a standard for the transcription and description of text bearing objects, and is very widely used in the digital humanities – from digital editions and manuscript catalogues to text mining and linguistic analysis. This course will take you through the basics of the TEI – what it is and what it can be used for – with a particular focus on uses in research, paths to publication (both web and print) and the use of TEI documents as a dataset for analysis. There will be a chance to create some TEI yourself as well as looking at existing projects and examples. The course will take place over two sessions a week apart – with an introductory taught session, then a chance to work on TEI records yourself, followed by a review and discussion session.
The workshop will be delivered live online on 18 & 25 January via Zoom. A link will be issued to booked attendees closer to the event.
The course is open to graduate students and staff at the University of Cambridge. Spaces are limited and must be booked in advance.
