    TEI Training Session: Encoding Literary and Cultural Documents in TEI

    This training session will use a case study model to provide advice and
    discussion on specific topics in text encoding, based on real-world
    problems supplied by the participants. The session is aimed at those
    responsible for designing their project's encoding system. It will provide
    a valuable opportunity to take a focused look at a particular problem or
    set of problems, in a group of knowledgeable peers guided by TEI experts.
    Participants are expected to have some basic familiarity with the TEI. The
    session will focus on the encoding of literary and cultural documents,
    interpreted broadly.

    The session will last from 1 to 6 pm on Thursday, November 6. Each
    participant will be asked to bring a problem or encoding challenge from
    their own project. The session will begin with a general discussion of the
    topics raised, followed by focused attention to each particular case in
    turn. The instructors will address each participant's questions in depth
    and also draw comparisons among the projects represented. The goal of the
    session will be not only to answer the participants' specific questions,
    but also to place them in the context of issues such as retrieval, data
    interchange, and long-term project goals. Any issues that are still
    unresolved at the end of the session may be discussed further with the
    instructors via email.

    The session can accommodate a maximum of 16 participants representing a
    maximum of 8 projects, and will be led by two instructors. The instructors
    are Julia Flanders, Director of the Women Writers Project and Terry
    Catapano, a Librarian in Columbia University Libraries' Digital Program.

    The deadline for applications is October 20, and applications will be
    accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The fee for the session is
    $75 for TEI members and subscribers, and $125 for non-members.

    To apply, please send the following information to Julia_Flanders@brown.edu:

    --Your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number
    --The project you work with (a URL would be helpful)
    --A paragraph describing your project's work (the materials you're
    encoding, the audience you're serving, the aims of your encoding)
    --A paragraph describing the particular encoding problem or question you
    wish to bring to the session.
    --An encoded sample and a copy of your DTD, if available.
