Programming4Humanists: a continuing education course and online webinar
offered by the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture, at
Texas A&M University.

Beginning Friday, January 23, 2015, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Central US time

Online meeting via join.me

This Spring, 2015, the *Programming4Humanists *course at Texas A&M
University will offer a more in-depth view of XSLT than covered in previous
courses, focusing on it for four 2-hour meetings.  Participants will learn
to change an archive of TEI documents into multiple formats: XML (i.e.,
when changes need to be made to an archive’s TEI encoding), HTML, ePubs,
and database files.  Three classes will be spent learning R for text mining
and analysis.  There will be one class each on XPath and XQuery that will
introduce participants to ways of manipulating an archive of TEI/XML
documents.  Finally, five 2-hour classes will introduce participants to the
process of OCR’ing historical documents using open source tools developed
by IDHMC for eMOP, the Mellon-funded Early Modern OCR Project (
http://emop.tamu.edu).

Classes on R will be taught by Neal Audenaert, recipient of Digital
Humanities grants from NEH and Mellon, and veteran instructor at the
Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria.
Dr. David Michelson and Cliff Anderson from Vanderbilt will teach XQuery.

The course meets for two hours on Fridays, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
(Central), beginning January 23, 2015 through May 8, 2015 (except TAMU
Spring Break Week, Good Friday and two Monday classes), see Syllabus on
programming4HUManists website for exact course dates. Registrants may

Course dates and the schedule of topics and readings, plus registration
