TEI, What’s Next? A Personal Journey
This talk will be based on the experience of 15 years of editing texts, both epigraphic and manuscript, in TEI. The model of collaboration presented by the TEI movement is inspiring and important; and the approach to the editing of texts is one that should steadily be raising standards. As digital humanities expand and develop, what are the challenges to collaborations? And what is the current status of text editing as an academic practice? What are the new dangers and opportunities?
