Upcoming Workshop (11/17): Text Encoding

Text Encoding

Tuesday, November 17th 6:30-8:30pm

This workshop provides a basic primer in flexible text encoding and markup using XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and principles of the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative). Humanities scholars use this method to transform texts into computational data, format digital texts to meet archival standards, and prepare an encoded or annotated text for eventual web interface. We will explore the historical uses of markup in academic and cultural institutions, contrast its usefulness against other methods such as topic modelling and text mining, and use our workshop time to transform a short text into tabular data. No experience necessary.

This workshop will be hosted by Mary Catherine Kinniburgh and Jeremy March.
