This workshop is an intensive introduction to building digital scholarly editions following the guidelines of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). The TEI Guidelines are the de facto standard for recording our interpretation of historical texts for research through digital markup. Although the very general TEI Guidelines are used for many purposes, this workshop will assume that you are interested in creating digital scholarly editions of texts. This workshop will explain the XML (Extensible Markup Language) format and the vocabulary of the TEI through both lectures and practical hands-on exercises by participants. No previous experience with XML or TEI markup is assumed, and introductions to both of these will be provided as part of the workshop.

The workshop will provide a basic level of introduction to those modules of the TEI which are most used by those creating digital scholarly editions, as well as a brief introduction to customising the TEI for your own project.The workshop will conclude with considerations of the various routes to publishing a TEI-based digital scholarly edition. Participants do not need to provide their own materials as the exercises will use pre-prepared texts, however you will be encouraged to consider how you might apply what you have learned to your own materials.
