Text Encoding for Ancient and Modern Literature, Languages and History

Text Encoding for Ancient and Modern Literature, Languages and History
23 November 2020, 2.00pm - 30 November 2020, 12.00pm
Research Training

Tutors: Gabriel Bodard (ICS), Christopher Ohge (IES)

This online workshop will use a mix of real-time and asynchronous teaching to introduce participants to a range of practices and issues in text encoding and annotation. We will work hands-on with HTML and Markdown or “Wikitext” encoding, and the Recogito annotation platform, and discuss the theory and context of text encoding in academic research and editing. We will mention XML and TEI but not work hands-on with this more advanced form of text encoding.

This training is targeted at research students and early career researchers, but all are welcome; booking is essential. Please commit to attending both sessions on Monday November 23 at 14:00 and Friday November 27 at 12:00, and to completing individual and group work after each session. Each live session will be under an hour in duration and there is also an hour's worth of prepared video tutorials in total. It is expected that participants will commit somewhere between 2 - 4 hours to practical work and group discussion in their own time over the course of the ten-day workshop. 

In collaboration with the Institute of Historical Research, the Institute of Classical Studies, and the Institute of English Studies
