Beyond Editing:
Advanced Solutions and Technologies

Summer School
Prague – 4-8 Sept. 2017

Organised by the Faculty of Arts, Charles University Prague, and CNRS CIHAM UMR 5648, with the support of DARIAH’s Humanities at Scale programme

Call for Applications

This Summer School targets Humanities scholars, librarians and students who have already acquired a working knowledge of digital scholarly editing, especially TEI encoding, and wish to go further. If the encoding is a crucial step, that translates the modelisation of a text or document into a computer-readable form, scholars need to put this encoding to good use by displaying, processing and analysing it. To this end, it is necessary to master other technologies, which are often more difficult to learn, with much rarer training opportunities.

During this week-long school, the participants will learn how to display, transform and process a scholarly XML edition, with the aim of becoming able to work on their own editions with the latest digital methods.

The week will be organised as follows:

  • a “main course” (all the morning sessions), centered on XSLT (eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformation), a powerful language especially designed to work with XML;
  • a few “sides”, or workshops, will be offered during the afternoon sessions, to introduce the participants to more specialised technologies and solutions allowing them to enhance a scholarly edition (geographical data, linguistic tools, network analysis, etc.)

We invite applications from scholars, students (Master level and beyond), librarians, archivists and other research professionals involved in the production and valorisation of scholarly digital editions. The selection committee particularly invites applicants from Central and Eastern Europe.


The participation in the Summer school programme is free, and in addition, selected applicants will receive a bursary: DARIAH’s Humanities at Scale programme will cover the cost of their travel and accommodation, up to a maximum of 500 EUR (participants will be refunded, up to 500 EUR, after the training school and upon presentation of the receipts).


The Summer school will be hosted by the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, in the historical centre of Prague.
