Announcing a new workshop: Intensive Introduction to TEI
August 11-13, 2005
Brown University
Co-sponsored by the Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers
Project, in conjunction with Summer and Continuing Education at Brown


The Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers Project are offering a
new three-day workshop on text encoding with the TEI Guidelines. This
intensive hands-on introduction will cover the basics of TEI encoding,
including a discussion of stylesheets and XML publication tools, project
planning, and funding issues. The workshop is designed to help encoding
novices get quickly up to speed on basic text encoding, with particular
emphasis on the transcription of primary sources and archival materials.
Archivists, librarians, digital project managers, humanities faculty and
graduate students might all find this workshop a useful background for a
closer engagement with text encoding theory and practice. The course will
be taught by Julia Flanders, Syd Bauman, and Patrick Yott.

Attendees are welcome to bring materials from their own projects for
discussion and practice.

The course fee is $575, with low-cost accommodation available on the Brown
campus. To register, or for more information, please visit the site above.

Thanks! Julia
