announcing TAPAS launch

We are very happy to announce the public launch of the TEI Archiving, Publishing, and Access Service. TAPAS
is now available to the TEI community and the public. TAPAS offers a low-cost solution to the long-term
archiving and publication of TEI data, with special emphasis on the needs of smaller projects and
individual scholars. You can visit the project at:

http://tapasproject.org

TAPAS is free for all TEI members, and is an important new benefit of TEI membership. The service enables
members to upload TEI data for long-term storage, and to create TAPAS projects and collections that
publish their TEI data. For non-members, we also offer the TAPAS Commons, a shared space where anyone can
upload and publish TEI files. Thanks to a number of early adopters, TAPAS is already home to several
thriving TEI projects, with more being added every week. Many TAPAS features will work best once more data
has been contributed, but already you can see many features in operation. All published TAPAS data is
accessible on an open-access basis. 

The initial planning and development of TAPAS was generously funded by the Institute for Museum and
Library Services and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our next phase of development has
already begun with a new NEH grant that supports the addition of an XML-aware repository to TAPAS. In the
coming year we will also continue to improve the TAPAS publication mechanisms, provide a public API,
develop programs of training and outreach, expand our documentation and user support, and help
contributors to build their TEI projects.

TAPAS could not have been built without the generous assistance of many in the TEI community, including
beta testers, contributors of test data, early adopters, and those who have offered advice and
assistance in many different ways. We are particularly grateful to the TEI for its support of the project.
Our warm thanks go out to all who have helped!

We look forward to seeing TAPAS grow, and we invite your engagement, feedback, and contributions! If you
have questions about how to use TAPAS or suggestions for future development, we’d be happy to hear from
you. Please visit the site’s forums to contribute.

simple discussion at TEI MM?

Several (many) of you are currently in Evanston.

I wonder how many of you would be interested in meeting for dinner on Friday night to 
chat about TEI Simple issues?

Two things come to mind that are similar to this ...

a) The Encyclopedia of Diderot and d'Alembert Collaborative Translation 
Project ( http://quod.lib.umich.edu/d/did/ ) provides a list of 
resources related to the Encyclopédie ( 
http://quod.lib.umich.edu/d/did/resources.html ), which includes a link 
to the Zotero bibliography.

b) The Text Encoding Initiative Consortium ( http://www.tei-c.org/ ) 
maintains a bibliography of publications related to the TEI in Zotero ( 
http://www.tei-c.org/Support/Learn/tei_bibliography.xml ).  They have an 
XSLT that transforms the output from Zotero into the data format used on 
their website (TEI XML), which they can run periodically to updated the 
copy on their site from the Zotero source.

Elections: deadline VERY soon!

Dear All,

The TEI Members meeting has just kicked off in sunny Evanston.
I'm just reminded that the closing time for our elections is fast approaching, but only a third of our electors have expressed their vote as to last night. Voting is a very important way to influence the life and the future direction of the TEI

This is a call to action:

- If you are a voter, individual or institutional, please vote NOW
- If you are not a voter but know someone that is, please make them to vote
- If you are part of an institution that is a TEI member, please check with the designed voters if they have voted
- If you are part of an institution that is a TEI member, but you don't know who is the designed voter, please ask us and we will be able to help you to locate them

Vote! Vote! Vote! 
Thank you :)

Elena

TEI Conference Social Media

Dear colleagues, 

Good morning from Chicago! Before the 2014 TEI Conference commences shortly (approx. 30 mins), I would like to remind those of you who are attending the conference (and, of course, those of you who are watching from afar) that the official designated Twitter hash tag for the conference is #TEIConf2014.

I would like to encourage you all to live tweet during the event using the aforementioned hash tag because I intend to archive, analyse and visualise all our social media data for this exciting event. I have created a 'TEI Twitter List' document, which you can access here. Please add your name and Twitter handle to this list. 

Furthermore, if any of you would be interested in writing a report on the conference, keynotes and/or workshops for publication on the TEI-C website, please email me at pauldjoshea <at> gmail.com

I look forward to seeing all online and in person today. 

Best wishes from your web content and social media manager,

Paul O'Shea

CFP for joint ADE STS Conference

Call for Papers – the Joint Conference of the Society for Textual Scholarship and the Association for Documentary Editing

 

CONVERGENCES AND DIVERGENCES

 

University of Nebraska-Lincoln, June 17-20, 2015

Program Organizers: Andrew Jewell, Amanda Gailey, Elizabeth Lorang, Kenneth M. Price

Deadline for Proposals: January 30, 2015

Keynote Speaker: Jerome McGann

The Society for Textual Scholarship and Association for Documentary Editing announce a historic joint conference of the two organizations to be held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, an international hub for digital editing. Home to the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities and numerous print and digital editing projects, UNL is located in the capital of Nebraska and offers opportunities for exploring the history and geography of the Great Plains.

This special joint conference will bring together two organizations with a history and future of interests in studying and editing literary and historical materials. We invite proposals on any aspect of documentary editing and textual scholarship, including (but not restricted to) the discovery, editing, annotation, analysis, teaching, and publication of texts from many disciplines, including history, literature, classics, musicology, philosophy, paleography, codicology, linguistics, art history, the history of science, library and information science, film studies, gender and sexuality studies, ethnic studies, and more. We invite proposals from students.

Because this is a unique joint meeting of the two organizations, we are especially interested in submissions on the theme of convergences and divergences—papers that examine how different editorial theories and methodologies at times intersect and at others veer apart. What are the histories and possible futures of the two related but distinct editorial traditions of ADE and STS? We see this conference as an opportunity for reflection about editorial traditions and the prospects for textual studies and encourage proposals that explore these topics.

Submissions may take the following forms:

1. Papers. Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length, making a significant original contribution to scholarship. 

 2. Panels. Panels may consist of either three associated papers or four to six roundtable speakers. Roundtables should address topics of broad interest and scope, with the goal of fostering lively debate with audience participation.

3. Posters. Posters showcase projects or present focused topics in a setting that features personal interaction and informal conversation. Posters on works-in-progress are encouraged.

To propose a paper, panel, or poster, send an abstract of no more than 500 words to the program committee via the form available at http://go.unl.edu/e8x8 no later than January 30, 2015. The proposal should clearly indicate the format and whether technological support will be required. Please include the name, email address, and institutional affiliations for all participants.

 

 

Opportunity for New Editors: Institute for Editing Historical Documents

With funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the ADE offers an additional opportunity in Lincoln in conjunction with the conference: the Institute for Editing Historical Documents, to be held June 13-17 for individuals new to the practice of historical documentary editing.  Experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles of their field and insight into the realities of their work. For more information, contact Bob Karachuk, Education Director, Association for Documentary Editing, at ade-educationdir <at> documentaryediting.org.

Question about theater markup

Dear Members of the list,

I'm copying here a message of a friend of mine, Jesus Ureña, from the Extremadura University, who has
problems to subscribe to the list and has a question on tagging theatre texts. Here is the question:
I don't know how to mark when a theatre character speaks aside of the scene, talking to himself and to the
public, but without being heard by the other characters. I can't mark it as 
 <sp type="aside"> as it would affect to the whole passage and this is not the case. Any ideas or suggestions?
 Thanks a lot and best regards,

Jesus
