A practical introduction to digital scholarly editing with TextLab

Collab 1, Kilburn Building - Friday 18 May 12.00-4.00

(in association with the John Rylands Research Institute)

This workshop will be a practical introduction to digital scholarly editing with TextLab. TextLab is a web-based application that matches transcriptions of manuscripts in TEI-XML to the manuscript images, in effect creating a one-to-one correspondence between word and image.  The workshop will be facilitated by Christopher Ohge, Lecturer in Digital Approaches to Literature at the Institute of English Studies, University of London.

Lunch will be available at all these events. 

The workshops are open to all postgraduate students and academic researchers at the University of Manchester, and all PGR students within the North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership. Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all participants on each day.  Please note that numbers are limited, so do please register early to avoid disappointment.

Participants will need to bring their own laptop for each session, and further instructions will be given about downloading any software.
