        Subject: Extended deadline: Advanced TEI seminar in encoding contextual information


Please note extended deadline; please circulate.

Applications are invited for participation in an advanced TEI seminar  
on encoding contextual information, being held at Brown University,  
April 8-10, 2010, hosted by the Center for Digital Scholarship and the  
Women Writers Project.

Application deadline is December 15, 2009. Participants will be  
notified in early January. For more information and to apply, please  
visit http://www.wwp.brown.edu/encoding/seminars/.

This seminar assumes a basic familiarity with TEI, and provide an  
opportunity to explore contextual encoding topics in more detail, in a  
collaborative workshop setting. We will focus 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.

This seminar is part of a series funded by the NEH and conducted by  
the Brown University Women Writers Project. They 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 will be assumed.

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