Instructor: Dr. Godfried Croenen (University of Liverpool)
In this follow-up workshop to ‘Text mark-up with TEI for humanities research’, Godfried Croenen, an internationally recognised digital humanities expert at the University of Liverpool, will draw on his research on the work of Jean
Froissart, a prominent late-medieval chronicler, author and poet, for the Online Froissart to help digital humanities scholars deepen their familiarity with new digital technologies for working with texts. The focus will be on different ways of digitally exploiting texts that have been marked up with TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) XML for research in the humanities. XSLT will be touched upon briefly, but most of the work will focus on using existing XML libraries for Perl and Python to analyse the marked up text.
This workshop is aimed at participants who have attended the introductory workshop on TEI mark-up or those who through their own research have acquired a good familiarity with TEI mark-up. Participants are encouraged to bring their own marked up texts; there will be the opportunity to discuss. A basic familiarity with programming in Perl or Python would be useful but not absolutely necessary. Participants who bring their own laptop will be advised on freely available software tools to install before the workshop.
