Mitacs summer 2016 internships

Hi all,

This programme is certainly of interest to members of this list and people they know. There are some great paid internships available, including two in my labs at the U of L. The programme is aimed at international students (from high, mid, and low income economies) who wish to intern with Canadian academics.

Our positions involve XML work on journals or 3D and Linked Open Data work on the Visionary Cross project. We welcome excellent students in either of these. But there are lots of other positions available!

<place> in <performance>

 

 

Dear *,

is there a (not technical) reason why <performance> may contain <listPlace> but not <place>? Normally, every performance is at one place only. Thus, using <listPlace> would be the exception. Many examples work with <rs type="place"> but <place> would be a more direct way to say this.

Best,
Philipp

PhD on bookbinding description from photographs

This announcement may be of interest to the list. Although the TEI is 
not a requirement for the project, interesting links with the Manuscript 
Description module may be possible:

Ligatus, a research centre of the University of the Arts London, in 
collaboration with Oxford University are inviting applications for a PhD 
research project in the subject of machine learning in bookbinding history.
Ligatus is the leading centre in the study of bookbinding history with a 
strong interest in documentation methods. Recent projects include a 
survey of 4,000 books (including photographs) from the medieval library 
of the Monastery of St. Catherine in Sinai, Egypt and a thesaurus of 
bookbinding concepts (Language of Bindings Thesaurus) which can be used 
for classifying content. This PhD project will look at image recognition 
and the automatic extraction of bookbinding features from photographs of 
books.
The ideal candidate will have a computer science degree with relevant 
projects and a strong interest in cultural heritage or a relevant 
humanities degree with proven knowledge of machine learning and image 
analysis techniques.

The Michael Ridley Postdoctoral Fellowship in Digital Humanities, 2016 - 2017

This is a two-year postdoctoral fellowship, named in honour of the former chief librarian and chief information officer of the University of Guelph, Michael Ridley, who did much to promote the digital humanities at the University of Guelph. As co-sponsors of this Fellowship, the College of Arts and the University Library seek a recent PhD with an established digital humanities research agenda. This fellowship will be awarded for the period January  2016 – December 2017.  It is valued at $47,500, with a yearly research allowance of $5,000. Postdoctoral fellows will also receive office space, access to the services of the host institution, and administrative and research assistance as needed.

The successful applicant is expected to pursue the research project submitted in their application, and to help promote the digital humanities at Guelph. Specifically, their duties will include  1) conducting original research; 2) creating and organizing a digital humanities speakers' series for teaching or research, and contributing to the University’s week-long summer workshops; 3) acting as a consultant for University faculty and graduate students interested in developing expertise in the digital humanities; 4) providing consultation and guidance on digital humanities technology, pedagogy, and space in the McLaughlin Library; 5) engaging with staff in relation to the application of digital technologies in Library initiatives and the planning of a digital scholarship centre; 6) teaching one course in the digital humanities per year, either at the senior undergraduate or graduate level.
 

Application Criteria

The successful applicant will have demonstrated experience and expertise in humanities computing (broadly understood), and will have completed a PhD in the humanities or information science within the last five years.

last minute places at eXist-DB Summer School, Maynooth

Dear all,

Due to certain amount of last-minute withdrawals from the exist-db Summer School in Maynooth http://dhprojects.maynoothuniversity.ie/exist-summer-school/ organized by DiXiT & DAH Ireland and hosted by An Foras Feasa, Maynooth University, we now have a handful of openings for both the refresher course (2 days) and the main workshop (5 days). Do get in touch with Richard Hadden (richard.hadden <at> nuim.ie) if you want to participate.

The school is aimed at students and researchers in Digital Scholarly Editing who already have a strong background in XML, XSLT and XPath (as well as HTML and CSS) and wish to further develop their knowledge of web infrastructures for editions. We are very happy to announce that the course will be taught by Wolfgang Meier, the creator of the eXist-DB XML database and web platform, along with other experts in the field.

    “General idea: no boring talks (apart from the bare minimum), hands-on, user-driven to an extent (meaning that if users only want to have Guinness we still force them to do eXist first!) with a goal of creating an app for a DSE at the end” — Magdalena Turska, co-organiser

The course is intended to be very hands-on or indeed hackathon style. As well as learning to use eXist, students will work in groups throughout the week to put their knowledge into practice and build a small, working edition.

The course will take place in An Foras Feasa at Maynooth Univeristy, Ireland, from the 1st to the 5th September 2015. There will be a short refresher course, covering XPath and XSLT, on 29th and 31st August. However, the main course is at an advanced level: students will be expected to have experience of XML and other X-technologies. All teaching will be in English.

The course is offered free of charge, participants are required to cover their travel and accommodation costs though. We can offer some help in arranging accommodation at student halls in Maynooth.

Please circulate among your friends and collaborators if you think they might be interested.

Best regards,

Magdalena Turska

TEI conversion

Hello,

I’m looking for a consultant that knows TEI XML well and can give some advice on how to convert and existing XML schema over to TEI format. I’ve done a good portion of the work but there are quite a few unanswered questions and it would be great to hear the pros and cons of one approach over another. 

Please contact me directly at william AT playshakespeare.com and fees are negotiable.

Thank you!

<relation> w/in <placeList>

Hello All,

I am making a <placeList> which involves the inclusion of multiple types of places, all of which has some hierarchical relationship with other places in the list. To mark this relationship, the most rational strategy in the TEI element set is of course <relation>, which according to the guidelines, it is allowed to occur within a <listPlace>.

Ideally I would like to put a relation element within each <place> entry block so as to keep all of the information all in the same place for the entire contents of the list, but for some reason that is not allowed….

So the next most acceptable thing is to place the <relation>'s in somewhere near (either before or after) the related elements so the encoding process and human readability of the document is easier…

e.g.
            <place n="681" xml:id="Öst.">
               <placeName xml:lang="de">Österreich</placeName>
               <placeName xml:lang="de" full="abb">Öst.</placeName>
               <location>
                  <geo corresp="#gis_region_id-862"/>
               </location>    
            </place>
           
            <relation name="vaterregion" active="#Öst." passive="#Kä #OÖ #Bgl. #NÖ #Sa. #St. #Tir. #W. #Vlbg."/>
           
            <!--  administrative regions within country -->   
           <place n="181" xml:id="OÖ">
              <placeName xml:lang="de">Oberösterreich</placeName>
              <placeName xml:lang="de" full="abb"></placeName>
              <location>
                 <geo corresp="#gis_region_id-735"/>
              </location>
           </place>
           
            <place n="101" xml:id="Kä">
               <placeName xml:lang="de">Kärnten</placeName>
               <placeName xml:lang="de" full="abb"></placeName>
               <location>
                  <geo corresp="#gis_region_id-708"/>
               </location>
            </place> 
….
However, when placed in multiple, non-adjacent places as described above the following error message is raised (in Oxygen): 

E [Jing] element "place" not allowed here; expected the element end-tag or element "listRelation" or "relation"

I have noticed this also happens where trying to do the same thing (which also should be allowed according to the guidelines) within <listPerson> as well.

> Is this supposed to happen or is there something wrong with Oxygen?

>> If this is not a glitch, can anyone explain to me the reasoning behind requiring that all occurrences of <relation> be adjacent in these contexts? 

Thanks in advance!
