„Advanced XML/TEI technologies for Digital Scholarly Editions“, Graz, 13.-17.4.2015 (in cooperation with DiXiT)



The IDE offers a spring school on „Advanced XML/TEI technologies for Digital Scholarly Editions“ in cooperation with the Digital Scholarly Editions Initial Training Network (DiXiT). The spring school will be run and held at the at the Centre for Information Modelling – Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Graz from 13th to 17th April 2015.

The spring school is directed to participants with previous experience in XML/TEI editing who would like to involve themselves more intensively with the creation of digital scholarly editions based on the international encoding standard XML TEI P5. Besides addressing specific issues and use cases of text encoding, the participants will be trained what to do with the data once the encoding is done and how to process it further until the publication on the WWW. To this end the teaching will strongly focus on XPath, XSLT, HTML and CSS as technologies for the web publication of digital scholarly editions.

Since the level of this spring school is advanced, previous knowledge of TEI practices is not only recommended but necessary for participation.

The lectures will be held by experts from the field of digital scholarly editing, related to the DiXiT network or the IDE (James Cummings, Magdalena Turska, Torsten Schaßan, Ulrike Henny, Franz Fischer, Martina Semlak, Georg Vogeler, Gunter Vasold). Tara Andrews (Univ. of Bern) has agreed to give a keynote.
