Lecture Series: Magdalena Turska

Magdalena Turska is a software developer and co-author of the TEI Publisher – a publication platform for TEI/XML corpora. She is a contributor to eXist-db project and since 2015 she is an elected member of the TEI Consortium’s Technical Council. As a DiXiT Marie Curie experienced researcher at IT Services, University of Oxford she was a member of the TEI Simple project and one of the authors of the TEI Processing Model.

She works on various academic projects in Digital Humanities, teaches advanced TEI encoding, XSLT and XQuery and often helps projects with data modeling and application design.

What does it take to publish an edition?

What this talk is not, is a lesson in textual scholarship. What it aims to be instead, is a rough guide to the complicated interweave of standards, technologies and logistical issues behind the publishing process, and some advice on how to navigate this maze. We’ll then try to follow a chain of serendipitous events which eventually led to a proposal for an editors-first, standards-always and community-foremost tool that was brought to life in the new version 5 of the TEI Publisher. I will talk about some projects that were our inspirations, guinea pigs, challenges and benefactors (usually all at once) and hope to discuss the future of editions with you!

This lecture is organized in conjunction with the UAntwerp’s Summer School on “Digital Humanities” Registration for the summer school itself has closed, but attending the speaker’s keynote lecture is free and open to all. Please register by sending an email to platformdh@uantwerpen.be.
