Workshop: Introduction to TEI Customization

April 7 @ 9:00 am - April 8 @ 5:00 pm

Since the release in 2007 of the most recent version of TEI (P5), TEI users have had a very different relationship to the TEI Guidelines. Unlike previous versions, TEI P5 does not exist in a “default” or “vanilla” state: any TEI schema used in a text encoding project must be generated from the TEI source and involves some degree of choice and selection. When properly planned, the TEI customization process can make a huge difference to the efficiency of a TEI project and the quality and longevity of its data. Good customizations capture the project’s specific modeling decisions, and ensure consistency in the data, while retaining as much interoperability and mutual intelligibility with other TEI projects and tools as possible. Customization also contributes importantly to the process of data curation, both at the time of data creation and later in the project’s life cycle. This seminar will introduce participants to the central concepts of TEI customization and to the language (a variant of the TEI itself) in which TEI customizations are written.

Registration: $450 (students and TEI members, $300). Registration is free for members of the Northeastern University community. Register here by April 1, 2017.

This event will be held over two days: April 7 and 8, 2017.
