2023 Spring Course - Programming 4 Humanists

Beyond Encoding: Refining and Launching Text-Based Digital Humanities Projects

This intermediate-level course is designed to build upon the basics of XML encoding courses, for the purposes of building text-based digital humanities projects. It serves as an expansion for the Programming4Humanists course Digital Editions from Start to Finish, though anyone familiar with TEI/XML encoding and looking to refine their projects will benefit. The course focuses on a variety of skills necessary to run a digital humanities project and work with the data it produces. Rather than guiding participants toward a set final project, this course offers an intermediate-level toolkit of skills with optional one-on-one project consultations twice during the semester.

Topics to be covered include both project development (project management and sustainability, goal setting, content management, documentation, peer review, etc.) and technical skills to further develop XML-based projects (regex, git, schema development, XSLT, XML Databases, and XQuery).

This webinar will run from February 3 to April 28, 2023 (no class on March 17th for TAMU’s Spring Break), and meet every Friday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CST) through Zoom. All class sessions will be recorded and posted for participants whose schedules conflict with the live meeting time. More information, including a detailed course syllabus, can be found here on our website,
