We are pleased to announce that the David Jones Digital Archive (under the auspices of the David Jones Research Center) will be co-hosting a virtual workshop on the TEI (Text Encoding Initiative) with the National Library of Wales this coming July 5-9, 2021. Made possible by a grant from the SPIRE scheme at the University of Bergen (Norway), a team of digital humanities experts and Jones scholars will work with 15 participants to learn the basics of the TEI with the focused task of creating a digital edition of Jones’s poetic work 'The Book of Balaam’s Ass' (see the National Library of Wales catalogue entry here: archives.library.wales/index.php/book-of-balaams-ass)
