Austin E. Knowlton Athletics Complex, Oberlin College
We will come together under one roof to catch up with one another, to see the new faces, and to learn more about the digital projects that are currently under development in the consortium. In addition to hearing about existing projects, we'll also talk about the potential uses for text encoding -- specifically the TEI standards -- in projects from various disciplines. To this end, we'll walk through current applications of TEI and cap the day with a talk about the long view of Text Encoding standards, both by our keynote speaker, Julia Flanders.
