DHI Workshop: Editing the Eartha M.M. White Collection

As part of the UNF College of Arts and Sciences Spring 2018 “Black Jacksonville Event,” the digital editing project “Editing the Eartha M.M. White Collection” will offer a three-day Digital Humanities workshop. Students, faculty and staff will first explore the life and work of Eartha M.M. White and the archive of related materials held within Special Collections in the Thomas G. Carpenter Library at UNF. They will then learn to transcribe and encode materials related to the history of Stanton from this collection using TEI-XML, the international standard today for electronic textual work in the Humanities. The materials prepared by participants will be incorporated into an online archive being constructed by the “Editing the Eartha M.M. White Collection,” an affiliated project of the UNF Digital Humanities Initiative.
