WWP Seminars on Scholarly Text Encoding

WWP seminars and workshops offer an exceptional introduction to scholarly text encoding and digital humanities technologies. They're designed to serve faculty, librarians, and students in the humanities who are interested in using text encoding as a scholarly tool, and offer participants a chance to examine the significance of text encoding as a scholarly practice, through a combination of discussion and practical experimentation. We cover a rotating set of topics in basic and intermediate TEI encoding, TEI customization, basic XSLT, issues in text encoding theory, and other topics in digital humanities.

Space is limited so please register early. The registration deadline is the last day to register, but workshops may fill up before the deadline. Information about travel and hotel logistics is available and you'll receive information about what to bring a few weeks before the event.

Interested in a topic you don't see on the schedule? Let us know! Your input will help us plan what to offer. We also welcome suggestions for new seminar topics. A full list of workshop topics is here.
