Borås: DiXiT Camp3

1. Abstract

Training workshop organized by DiXiT (Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network) and University of Borås targeted at master and doctoral students and researchers interested in digitizing, encoding and publishing historical sources.

Workshop aims to give an overview of the basic concepts of XML and supporting technologies, familiarize participants with TEI vocabulary and showcase chosen transformation possibilities for TEI encoded files. We’ll be mixing lectures with hands-on practical sessions to lay a foundation for independent work on digital editing projects.

2. Aims of the Course

  • To introduce the concept of markup and XML encoding
  • Provide hands-on experience in using TEI XML markup
  • Intensively survey the basics of the TEI scheme, its assumptions and organisation
  • Showcase a number of transformation or publication methods
  • Provide routes into more detailed information for exploration later.
