TEI @ Oxford Summer School 2010


   @ Oxford Summer School is a three day course introducing 
the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) for 
encoding of digital text. It combines in-depth coverage of the 
latest version of the TEI Recommendations for the encoding of 
digital text with practical workshops on related technologies. It 
includes an introduction to mark-up, explanations of the TEI 
Guidelines, and approaches to publishing TEI texts. Practical 
exercises expose you hands-on experience of a wide range of TEI 
customisation, editing, and publication.

Each day will also include a number of afternoon 2.5 hour 
parallel workshops on related technologies and topics. These will 
include TEI Publishing; TEI for Language Resources; Transforming 
TEI with XSLT; TEI in Libraries; Creating a TEI-based Website 
with the eXist XML Database; and Genetic Editing: transcribing 
documents, transcribing the process. There will also be optional 
surgery sessions for those who wish to consult with TEI@Oxford 
about their particular projects or encoding issues. There will 
also be guest lectures from Digital Humanities experts familiar 
with the TEI talking about their own projects, including C. 
Michael Sperberg-McQueen (co-editor of the XML Spec and one of 
the founding editors of the TEI).

If you are a project manager, research assistant, or encoder 
working on any kind of project concerned with the creation or 
management of digital text, this course is for you!

The course runs from Monday 12 July – Wednesday 14 July, 2010. 
The course runs from 09:30 – 17:30 each day in our fully-equipped 
computer training rooms. Lunch and refreshments are included in
