July 23-August 10, 2012, Tufts University in Medford, MA will host “Working with Text in a Digital Age”, a three-week NEH Institute for Advanced Technology in the Digital Humanities. This institute will combine traditional topics such as TEI markup with training in methods from Information Retrieval, Visualization, and Corpus and Computational Linguistics. Co-directors are Monica Berti and Gregory Crane, Tufts University; Anke L├╝deling, Humboldt University.

This institute will provide participants with three weeks in which to:
  1. Develop hands on experience with TEI-XML,
  2. Apply methods from information retrieval, text visualization, and corpus and computational linguistics to the analysis of textual and linguistic sources in the humanities,
  3. Rethink not only their own research agendas but also new relationships between their work and non-specialists.
