Antwerp Summer School in Digital Humanities: Making a Digital Edition - Basic
Skills and Technologies

Focus: Digital Scholarly Editing, Raspberry Pi, Command Line, HTML, JSON, TEI-
XML, XPath, XSLT, eXist-db

Dates: 29 June - 3 July

Place: Antwerp (Belgium)

Price: €150 (early bird);  €200 (regular)

Deadline: 16 March (early bird); 6 April (regular)

From 29 June to 3 July 2020, the University of Antwerp's Centre for Digital
humanities and literary Criticism (ACDC)
(https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/research-groups/digitalhumanities/) is organising
its third annual Summer School in Digital Humanities

Course Description (https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/summer-schools/digital-
The summer school will exist of an intensive 5-day entry level hands-on course
on making digital scholarly editions. Over the course of the week, participants
will gradually learn how to transcribe and describe textual cultural heritage
documents 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, participants will set up a Local Area Network of
Raspberry Pi (https://www.raspberrypi.org/) minicomputers to develop an eXist-db
XML database for hosting and sharing their materials in the form of a digital
scholarly edition.

As students will be introduced to these technologies step by step, the course
requires no prior skills or knowledge - other than to complete a minor
autodidactic exercise to make sure everyone has a basic understanding of some of
the core technologies the course will build on (HTML, CSS, Command Line).

Keynote Speaker (https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/summer-schools/digital-
The organizers are happy to announce that the summer school's keynote lecture
will be presented by prof. dr. Elena Pierazzo, Professor of Digital Humanities

transcription, edition and cataloguing of modern and medieval manuscripts. She
was co-chairs the working group on digital editions of the European Network
NeDiMAH (http://archives.esf.org/coordinating-research/research-networking-
programmes/humanities-hum/nedimah.html) and one of the scientist in chief for
DiXiT (http://dixit.uni-koeln.de/)  a Marie Curie ITN devoted to the training of
doctoral students to the practice of digital scholarly editing. And in 2019, she
was invited by the ADHO (http://adho.org/) (Alliance of the Digital Humanities
Organisation) as the co-Chair of the Program Committee of the DH2019 in Utrecht.

Although this lecture is part of the summer school's official programme, the
keynote will be organised in the context of the University of Antwerp's
