Neither Tethered nor Tied: The Advantages of TEI-XML in a Multi-Format DH Project

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 – 12:00 PM-1:00 PM. Room SMD129

Constance Crompton
Department of Communication, University of Ottawa

Abstract: Drawing on the Lesbian and Gay Liberation in Canada (LGLC) project, this talk reflects on the role of TEI-XML in a project development workflow. The LGLC project is a TEI- and database-driven chronology of the gay liberation movement in Canada, covering the period from the formation of the first Canadian homophile associations in 1964 to the start of the AIDS crisis in 1981. This paper considers what advantages TEI has to offer in an age when there are so many underlying formats that could power a DH project.
