'On the history and aims of TEI and its applicability to Historical' Correspondence', a lecture by Dr Julianne Nyhan

Start: Oct 9, 2013 5:15:00 PM

Despite their importance as historical sources, much research remains to be done so that Historians can make full use of use both digitised and born digital correspondence in their research. A recent Musicians Trust report (2011) has highlighted some limitations of existing federated databases of historical documents. As well as providing an introduction to the history and aims of TEI this paper extends this analysis by arguing that the Text Encoding Initiative does not make adequate provision for encoding the material characteristics of historical correspondence. It is argued that Historians should be aware of, and where possible, contribute to such interdisciplinary research to ensure the long term research-applicability of digital editions of historical correspondence.

Start: Oct 15, 2013 5:30:00 PM

Without labels or classification the seemingly chaotic and disordered Wunderkammer revealed knowledge about the unity of nature through the resemblances and connections that could be found between things.

Have you ever been lost on the UCL campus? Wondering what lies behind closed doors? Would like to know more about the research work of one of your colleagues? Or, simply, know what is happening everyday around the University? Or let others know of your academic progress, or even personal news? If so, come to the official unveiling of the UCL Connections project, developed by the three UCL students that won UCL’s Digital Humanities Research Prize in April 2013: Jia Liu (UCL Archaeology), George Neris (UCL Centre for Sustainable Heritage, Bartlett), and Peter Williams (UCL Information Studies).
