Digital Humanities Summer School @ LINHD UNED


LINHD logoObjective of the course is to provide students with digital skills specific for academic digital editing. The course will focus on text processing through XML languages and particularly on TEI (Text Encoding Initiative), labelling system specifically designed for digital humanities.
The various programme sessions aim to complete the participants’ training, in order for them to become familiar with text transformation via different languages (HTML, CSS, XSLT) and formats (ePub). The competences acquired will enable the students to know the whole digital editing process and to generate several kind editions (scientific, didactic).

The course can be attended both physically and virtually (completely online).
