Do you work with the digital humanities? Do you have some familiarity with TEI and perhaps XML? Are you interested in jumping into TEI with a hands-on learning approach? If you answered yes to these questions, then join us for a series of 3 hack sessions. A PDF flyer for this event is available here.
Select the date(s) to register for a session:
July 7 - 1:30pm – 2:30pm
July 14 - 1:30pm – 2:30pm
July 21 - 1:30pm – 2:30pm
All sessions will be held in the Scholar’s Collaborative, HBL Level 4.
What are hack sessions?
These provide a collaborative, informative and hands on opportunity to learn more about how the TEI standard is implemented for the representation of texts in digital form. Interested persons will mark up text using the TEI standard and follow examples from the TEI website and additional resources. Participants will learn from each other as we work through TEI examples.
What people should bring?
Some handy prerequisites:
- Knowledge of TEI in general such as the consortium, why & when the TEI standard is used and general information about TEI.
- Basic knowledge of XML.
