We invite you to join members of the Digital Mitford project team from Saturday June 25 through Monday June 27, 2016 for the Fourth Annual Workshop Series and Coding School, hosted by the newly established Center for the Digital Text at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg.
The Digital Mitford team coordinated a massive effort last fall to complete a burst of coding, in particular to finish up transcriptions of assigned letters and to research and develop new prosopography entries–that is, entries on our lists of Named Entities: people (and fictional characters), organizations, places (and fictional places), books, serial publications, works of […]
Welcome to Greensburg, Digital Mitfordians! We’ve updated our site’s page of training materials for our coding school and editors’ workshops. We’re excited to be orienting over 30 people to the TEI and related coding methods this week!
Followers of our project should bookmark our new site address: http://digitalmitford.org ! We are transitioning our project to new server space hosted by the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC), and the Digital Mitford project has joined the PSC’s Data Exacell program, a pilot project that deploys supercomputing equipment and processing power to support data analysis projects across disciplines […]
Three of us on the Mitford team (Elisa, Elizabeth, and Lisa–the three of us, coincidentally, with the most similar first names) are at the University of Alberta in Edmonton this week for the Digital Diversity conference, and among other things we’ve been talking about our experiences with involving our students in the Digital Mitford project. […]
All actively involved with the Digital Mitford project should check their e-mail for important announcements in advance of our June workshops. Lots of progress is being made just now on our XML coding in advance of our workshops, and I’m gradually working through the XML code and prosopography entries our editors have been submitting so far. […]
We’ve not had a blog update from the Digital Mitford in a while, but our project team has been busy! We’ve been working on grant writing and conference talks, not to mention semester and job activities, our energies diverted in many directions. We need a Coding Refresher Hangout, so project-team members, please check your e-mail […]
