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.
 
Format:
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.
 
 
Eligibility:
