Introduction to MS Encoding with TEI

by Jessica C. Murphy

Introduction to Manuscript Encoding with TEI
Women Writers Project, Brown University
September 24-25, 2010
December 3-4, 2010

Space is still available in two introductory workshops on encoding manuscript materials with TEI.

These workshops will introduce participants to text encoding with the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines, with emphasis on manuscript texts. 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.

These workshops are aimed at humanities faculty, archivists, librarians, students, and anyone interested in getting a strong introduction to digital humanities concepts, methods, and tools. Each workshop combines hands-on practice with discussion and lectures, and participants are encouraged to work with their own project materials. These small group events offer a wonderful opportunity to learn about other digital projects as well as to master important methods and concepts in an exploratory setting.

More information, including detailed workshop descriptions and registration information, can be found at

Students and members of the TEI consortium receive a 33% discount on registration.

All workshops are held at the Brown University Women Writers Project and are led by Julia Flanders, Syd Bauman, and John Melson.
