A 5-day training event organised by Animating Texts Newcastle University and the Institute of English Studies, University of London

Welcome to the repo for the “Textual Editing in the Digital Age” training event (1-5 April 2019) at Newcastle University.

The sessions will be convened by James Cummings (Newcastle, Text Encoding Initiative) [JC], Tiago Sousa Garcia (Newcastle) [TSG], and Christopher Ohge (London) [CO], with guest tutors Charlotte Tupman (Exeter) [CT] and Francesca Benatti (Open U) [FB]. The training will consist of alternating lectures and practical workshop sessions on textual editing with XML technologies, including a thorough grounding in TEI as well as introductions to XPath searching and TEI publication tools. Also planned are presentations of case studies, a visit to Newcastle Library’s Special Collections (to hear about their interesting digital editing projects). There may also be unofficial social visits to the pub some evenings.

Registration is open to all students and staff, but preference will be given to MA and PhD students and early career staff from Northern England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. There will be no charge for the workshop.
