***********************
Introduction to Manuscript Encoding with TEI
Brown University, May 7-9, 2012
Cost: $450/$300 for TEI members and students

This seminar will introduce participants to text encoding with the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines, with emphasis on manuscript texts. Through a combination of hands-on practice, presentation, and discussion, participants will work through the essentials of TEI manuscript encoding and tackle topics and issues including:
	• how to represent revision processes and editorial perspectives
	• how to represent documents that are both manuscript and print
	• how to represent information about handwriting
	• how to capture details of the physical document
	• how we might use this information in a digital environment
No prior experience is necessary.

Introduction to Contextual Encoding with TEI
Brown University, October 15-17, 2012
Cost: $450/$300 for TEI members and students

Texts are important, but sometimes they are also an entry point to a larger interconnected universe of data about people, places, history and ideas. This seminar provides an introduction to the TEI with an emphasis on representing the contextual information that surrounds our documents. Through a combination of hands-on practice, presentation, and discussion, participants will work through the essentials of TEI markup and discover how to create detailed information about the entities named in primary sources: people, places, organizations, and any other context of interest. Topics covered include:

	• Text markup languages as an instrument of humanities scholarship
	• Basics of TEI markup: essential text structures and genres
	• Advanced TEI markup: personography, placeography, and the other 'ographies

No prior experience is necessary.

We hope to see you in Providence!

best wishes, Julia
