Type
Research Training
Description


Tutors: Jonathan Blaney (IHR), Gabriel Bodard (ICS), Christopher Ohge (IES), Naomi Wells (IMLR)


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 complex form of text encoding.


This training is targeted to research students and early career researchers, but all are welcome; booking is essential. Please commit to attending all three sessions. The workshop will involve sessions at 3-4pm on Tuesday June 2, Friday June 5, and Monday June 8, with individual and group work to be carried out in between.


Organised in collaboration with the Institute of Historical Research, Institute of English Studies, and Institute of Modern Languages Research.
