and Editions

Dates: 1-5 July

Place: Antwerp (Belgium)

Deadline: 10 April 2019

From 1 to 5 July 2019, the University of Antwerp's Centre for Digital humanities
and literary Criticism (ACDC) (https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/research-
groups/digitalhumanities/) is organizing its second annual Summer School in
Digital Humanities (https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/summer-schools/digital-
humanities/). The summer school will exist of an intensive 5-day entry level
hands-on course on making digital editions and managing digital collections.
Conveniently scheduled in the week before the annual ADHO conference (DH2019,
Utrecht, https://dh2019.adho.org/), those who are interested in either may take
the opportunity to attend both.

Course Description: https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/summer-schools/digital-

In the first half of the course, participants will acquire a set of basic
computer skills to share and reuse images through IIIF (https://iiif.io/). More
specifically, they will use a Raspberry Pi (https://www.raspberrypi.org/) to set
up a IIIF compliant server for hosting and sharing cultural heritage materials,
and pick up and practice relevant technologies (command line, SSH, HTML, JSON,
IIIF Manifests, etc.) along the way.

In the second half of the course, participants will learn to transcribe and
describe the texts on such cultural heritage materials in TEI
(https://tei-c.org/)-compliant XML, process their transcriptions using related
X-technologies (Xpath and XSLT), and prepare them for the web. Specifically,
they will use the TEI publisher (http://teipublisher.com/exist/apps/tei-
publisher-home/index.html) application) to publish their own materials in an
eXist-db (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=exist-db&t=osx&ia=web) environment.

Keynote Speakers (https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/summer-schools/digital-
The organizers are happy to announce that the summer school will have two
keynote speakers:

1.   On Monday 1 July, we invited Huw Jones of the Cambridge Digital Library
(http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/) to give a lecture about their recent work around
IIIF at their university's Digital Content Unit

2.    On Friday 5 July, we invited Magdalena Turska of eXist Solutions to
showcase the TEI Publisher she co-authored, and put the development and
maintenance of this tool in the context of community involvement. Together with
Wolfgang Meier (the creator of eXist-db), Magdalena will also lead Friday's
workshop sessions on publishing TEI-XML.

Although they are part of the summer school's official programme, both lectures
will become part of the University of Antwerp's platform{DH} Lecture Series
(http://uahost.uantwerpen.be/platformdh/index.php/talks/), and opened up to the
larger public.
