Digital Humanities Workshop @PCL: Introduction to the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI)

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), which is both a community of practice and a standardized markup language (similar to HTML) for making digital texts machine-readable, particularly in humanities disciplines. Participants will gain hands-on experience encoding texts using TEI standards, and TEI’s broader applicability will be discussed, including its use in established projects such as the online Walt Whitman Archive. No coding experience is necessary, and the only software required is a standard text editor such as Notepad, though the installation of Notepad++ is encouraged (and can be achieved during the workshop).
