Start Date: 10/27/2017Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Date: 10/27/2017End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description
Please join us Friday, October 27 at 3 p.m. in the Hatfield Room for our sixth Faculty Colloquium of this semester. Treats will be provided.

Presenter: Gaetano DeLeonibus, Professor of French and Francophone Studies
Title: "Digitizing André Breton's 17th-Century Carib-French Dictionary"

I attended a week-long intensive workshop (June 5-9, 2017), “Text Encoding Fundamentals and their Application,” an introduction to the theory and practice of encoding texts for the humanities. More specifically, the workshop introduced the non-initiate to the philosophy, theory, and practicalities of encoding original texts in XML (Extensible Markup Language) using the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines. During the workshop, I began to encode several pages of a 17th-century Carib-French dictionary with the XML Editor Oxygen.

This presentation will first give an overview of Breton’s dictionary, then delve into my experience at the workshop, and describe the use I’ve been making of the text and project in FREN 336.

Students are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.
