Introduction to Text Encoding

$250.00

Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs

The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines are a standard defining an XML vocabulary for representing textual materials in digital form. The creation of digital scholarly texts is a core part of the digital humanities and many digital humanities grants and publications require encoding texts in accordance with the TEI Guidelines. This course will introduce students to text encoding according to the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines to provide context and to support analysis and visualization of features of text relevant to humanities scholars. Students will learn the basic building blocks of a TEI document and become familiar with the TEI Guidelines as well as managing text encoding projects in ways that support uniform data creation.

Participants will review examples of TEI usage in other digital humanities projects and then devote time to encoding TEI documents relevant to their research interests. For those with no previous experience, readings about XML and the TEI will be provided.
