Antwerp DH Summer School 2019: Basic Skills for Digital Archives and Editions

July 1 - July 5
UAntwerp City Campus, Prinsstraat 13
Antwerp, 2000 Belgium

In Digital Humanities, digital editing and digitisation of archival documents are rapidly gaining prominence. Our summer school offers an intensive and practice-oriented 5-day course on making digital editions and managing digital collections. In the context of Digital Archives, participants will acquire a set of basic computer skills (command line, operating systems, and networks) while setting up a IIIF-compliant image server for sharing and reusing facsimiles of literary manuscripts. In the context of Digital Editions, participants will learn to transcribe these images in TEI-compliant XML and prepare their transcriptions for the web.

Cambridge Digital Library has been supporting content-driven Digital Humanities projects since the online launch of the Isaac Newton papers in 2011, covering everything from 3,000 year-old Oracle Bones to aerial photography from the 1940s. This talk will explore some of the developments during this period – imaging as an investigative research activity, digital resources as datasets, the formalisation of digital humanities in Cambridge, and the growing emphasis on collaboration in the field as a whole. In this context, the speaker will focus on IIIF as an open and collaborative technology which is having a huge impact not just on the technical possibilities for the sharing and analysis of image data, but also on the culture of digital humanities.

What does it take to publish an edition?

What this talk is not, is a lesson in textual scholarship. What it aims to be instead, is a rough guide to the complicated interweave of standards, technologies and logistical issues behind the publishing process, and some advice on how to navigate this maze. We’ll then try to follow a chain of serendipitous events which eventually led to a proposal for an editors-first, standards-always and community-foremost tool that was brought to life in the new version 5 of the TEI Publisher. I will talk about some projects that were our inspirations, guinea pigs, challenges and benefactors (usually all at once) and hope to discuss the future of editions with you!
