I have been using TEI to encode WWI-era magazines and would be interested in this discussion.

Subject: Re: TEI Newspapers?

I'm very interested in this topic, as well.  I've been working on a project using TEI to mark up mid-19C magazines.  I won't be in Vienna, but would be keen to join a virtual discussion and/or keep this thread going.

Very much a newcomer to this area, but I'm very interested in observing the evolution of a SIG, peripheral engagement with 18th Cent newspapers in my background if I can offer anything, just wanted to let you know I'm following this thread with interest.

Dear both and all,

I would be very interested in a SIG on newspapers. We have been creating newspaper corpora for a long time now.

Could you / we be clear whether we are talking about (daily) newspapers or periodicals.

I am terribly sorry, but I will not be able to be in Vienna.

Best Elisabeth

Dear Sinai,

I would be very keen to discuss this in Vienna!  I’ve been tinkering away at various models for several years, as part of the Modernist Journals Project and the Blue Mountain Project; we even held a hackathon here at Princeton this past winter to talk a bit about it. I have lots of ideas, and LOTS of questions!

Dear All,
Was there ever a thought about a SIG, a TEI Module or some other community discussion or resource on using XML-TEI for periodicals? If not, would you find it interesting? if not, why? and then, could we raise or discuss this over Ein Wiener Melange?
Thanks, and all best,
