Call for Participation
Advanced Seminars in TEI Encoding

Applications are invited for participation in a new series of advanced  
text encoding seminars, sponsored by the Brown University Women  
Writers Project with generous funding from the National Endowment for  
the Humanities.

These seminars assume a basic familiarity with TEI, and provide an  
opportunity to explore specific encoding topics in more detail, in a  
collaborative workshop setting. Each seminar will focus on one of two  

1. Manuscript encoding: focusing on the detailed challenges of  
encoding manuscript materials, including editorial, transcriptional,  
and interpretive issues and the methods of representing these in TEI  

2. Contextual information: focusing on TEI methods for formalizing and  
representing information about context: named entities such as people  
and places, thematic analysis and keywords, text classification,  
glossaries and annotations.

These seminars are intended to provide a more in-depth look at  
specific encoding problems and topics for people who are already  
involved in a text encoding project or are in the process of planning  
one. Each event will include a mix of presentations, discussion, case  
studies using participants' projects, hands-on practice, and  
individual consultation. The seminars will be strongly project-based:  
participants will present their projects to the group, discuss  
specific challenges and encoding strategies, develop encoding  
specifications and documentation, and create encoded sample documents  
and templates. We encourage project teams and collaborative groups to  
apply, although individuals are also welcome. A basic knowledge of the  
TEI Guidelines and some prior experience with text encoding (e.g. an  
introductory workshop, job experience, etc.) will be assumed.

Travel funding is available of up to $500 per participant.

Application deadlines are below. For information on how to apply, and
