Event description

Description

This workshop will introduce the basics of XML-based schemas used for digital encoding of texts, artwork, and other media. First, we’ll briefly discuss the ways in which such encoding of texts can be useful, using examples from the instructor’s own research and providing some sense of what you can do with XML-encoded data that will facilitate both close reading and big data approaches. Participants will then be given a chance to try out text encoding using TEI and texts they will have provided. No prior experience in TEI is necessary; however, participants will need to bring a short text they want to try encoding and preferably their own laptop. Slides for the presentation are available at https://macsphere.mcmaster.ca/bitstream/11375/21940/1/DMDS%202%20XML.pptx.

There will also be the opportunity for a follow-up session on Friday, September 28th for those people who want further in-depth discussion of the possibilities of TEI and XML-Based Metadata.
