The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) offers a standard way of describing texts to make them machine readable. A flavor of XML, TEI has been used in many humanities and social sciences disciplines, and it has a dedicated vocabulary for describing literary texts. TEI may be used to create digital editions, prepare texts for research, and preserve texts in a digital format. In this workshop, we'll provide an overview of TEI, try some hands-on encoding, and prepare you for the next steps in learning TEI. Please bring a laptop if possible.
