        Subject: last call for participation, TEI institute on manuscript materials

Note extended deadline:

Applications are invited for participation in an advanced TEI seminar  
on manuscript encoding, being held at the University of Nebraska- 
Lincoln, July 21-23, 2010, hosted by the Center for Digital Research  
in the Humanities.

Application deadline is March 10, 2010.

This seminar assumes a basic familiarity with TEI, and provide an  
opportunity to explore manuscript encoding topics in more detail, in a  
collaborative workshop setting. We will focus on the detailed  
challenges of encoding manuscript materials, including editorial,  
transcriptional, and interpretive issues and the methods of  
representing these in TEI markup.

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.
