[Appel à contribution] Colloque TEI – 7-11 octobre 2024 – Buenos Aires (DL : 30 avril)

Résumé

Texts, Languages, and Communities – TEI 2024 is the twenty-fourth conference of the Text Encoding Initiative, and the first to take place in a Spanish-speaking country. The TEI is one of the initiatives that has managed to endure over time and build an active community of users and practitioners inside and outside the Digital Humanities field. While for many years it gathered a predominantly English-speaking community, numerous projects —especially those related to digital editing— emerged during the very early days of the TEI in Spanish-speaking countries, bringing together scholars from Spain and Latin America.

This conference aims at highlighting the global outreach of the TEI together with its local adaptations. It hopes to bring us together as a diverse and multilingual community, where the exchange of experiences and shared learning help us to reflect on the texts we investigate, the languages we use, and the communities we create.

The conference will be held in-person at Universidad del Salvador, 7-11 October 2024. Pre-conference workshops will run on the 7-8 October, with the conference opening and running for the 9-11 October.

Appel à communications

We are pleased to announce a call for papers, posters, panels, demos, and workshops for “Texts, languages, and communities – TEI 2024”, the twenty-fourth conference and annual general meeting of the Text Encoding Initiative that will be held in person 7–11 October 2024 at Universidad del Salvador (USAL), Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Proposals must be submitted via ConfTool

Overview

The TEI Guidelines “are addressed to anyone who works with any kind of textual resource in digital form” and any source written in any language can be published in TEI. However, all texts are cultural constructs and can be understood, analyzed, and consequently, encoded, in many different ways. Even though the TEI’s remit is global, different communities of practice have grown as part of the initiative, like the East Asian/Japanese SIG, the Music SIG, or TTHub project. These different communities of practice have developed and put to use different approaches, methodologies and technologies for encoding and publishing cultural objects.

The conference topic – “Texts, languages, and communities”– aims at highlighting the global outreach of the TEI together with its local adaptations and bringing us together as a diverse and multilingual community, where the exchange of experiences and shared learning will help us reflect on the texts we investigate, the languages we use, and the communities we create.

Submissions

The conference welcomes contributions from all those who are developing or applying encodings for text and related cultural artifacts from fields including, but not limited to music, literature, history, linguistics, and archaeology in their work and research.

We are also especially interested in receiving proposals from participants with a range of expertise and a variety of roles, including independent and early-career scholars, research programmers and software engineers, cultural curators and archivists, librarians, as well as graduate and undergraduate students. We further invite proposals from participants who are newcomers to text encoding and may be first time attendees to the conference. Student travel bursaries for Argentine attendees will be available, as well as travel bursaries offered by the TEI and MEI consortia; more information will be provided after the review process.

Poster submissions are expected to report on early-stage work, introduce new work, projects, or software, or present experimental ideas for community feedback. A “poster slam” session will be dedicated to poster presentations of 1 minute each. Subsequently, poster presenters will have the chance to tell interested parties more about their project during the poster exhibition, where the audience can browse freely. Proposals should not exceed 300 words.

Panels are suited to coordinated approaches or discussions relating to a single theme. Submissions should describe the topic and nature of the panel, along with the main theses and objectives of the proposed contributions.
