XML/TEI Workshop: Learn How to Encode Documents and Contribute to the Wesley Works Digital Edition (On Demand)

In this session, in many ways a follow-up to last year's Atla session, "Proposing a TEI-encoding Project for the Wesley Works," we will introduce participants to the principles of text encoding using the Guidelines of the Text-Encoding Initiative, a subset of XML. While last year we discussed the rationale for using TEI to create a digital version of the Bicentennial Edition of the Works of John Wesley, as well as our plans for orchestrating such a large-scale project, this year we will offer introductory, hands-on training in TEI. Alternating between short presentations and guided encoding exercises, we will begin with the basics of text encoding common to any TEI project, then explain and exemplify more advanced principles by demonstrating how the Wesley Works Digital Edition, specifically, has adopted and sometimes adapted them. Conference participants will want to attend this workshop if they have an interest in learning how to encode documents of any kind in TEI, and especially so if they have an interest in getting involved in the encoding of the Wesley Works Digital Edition. We will end the session with a discussion of the ways such involvement is possible.
