Hi all,

As you might expect, our Textual Editing in the Digital Age workshop in the
Easter Break is cancelled.  (We might re-run at another time.)

In the meantime I know that Marjorie Burghart and Elena Pierazzo (with others)
are running an online introductory TEI workshop.

See https://twitter.com/medievalMB/status/1240361502747566081 for sign-up.

Many thanks,


Animating Text (Newcastle University) and the Institute of English Studies
(School of Advanced Study, University of London) are pleased to announce Textual
Editing in the Digital Age, an intensive 5-day workshop series that will focus
on digital methods for creating and analysing scholarly texts. Sessions will be
held from 30 March to 3 April 2020 at Newcastle University.

The workshop will be convened by James Cummings (Newcastle / Text Encoding
Initiative), Tiago Sousa Garcia (Newcastle), and Christopher Ohge (London), with
guest tutors Peter Stadler (Carl-Maria-von-Weber-Gesamtausgabe / University of
Paderborn) and Kate Simpson (Glasgow / Livingstone Online Project). The training
will consist of alternating lectures and practical workshop sessions on textual
editing with XML technologies, including a thorough grounding in Text Encoding
Initiative (TEI) guidelines as well as introductions to XPath searching and TEI
publication tools. Also planned are afternoon presentations of case studies, a
visit to Newcastle's special collections library, and social outings in and
around Newcastle.

Registration is open to all, but preference will be given to MA and PhD students
and early career staff from Northern England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

Space is limited. To apply, please send us an expression of interest, with a
brief CV, to
animating.text@newcastle.ac.uk, by 22
March 2020.

I am also happy to answer any questions in the meantime.

Many thanks,
