Textual editing in the digital age

Newcastle University, 1–5 April 2019

Animating Text (Newcastle University) and the Institute of English Studies (School of Advanced Study, University of London) are pleased to announce Textual Editing in the Digital Age, an intensive 5-day training series that will focus on new methods for creating and analysing digital scholarly editions. 

The sessions will be convened by James Cummings (Newcastle, Text Encoding Initiative), Tiago Sousa Garcia (Newcastle), and Christopher Ohge (London), with guest tutors Charlotte Tupman (Exeter) and Francesca Benatti (Open U). The training will consist of alternating lectures and practical workshop sessions on textual editing with XML technologies, including a thorough grounding in Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) guidelines as well as introductions to XPath searching and TEI publication tools. Also planned are afternoon presentations of case studies, a visit to Newcastle's special collections library, and social outings in and around Newcastle.

Registration is open to all, but preference will be given to MA and PhD students and early career staff from Northern England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. There will be no charge for the workshop.

Space is limited. To apply, please enter your details in the following application form by 4 March 2019.
