A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (DayofDH) is a project looking at a day in the work life of people involved in digital humanities computing. Every year it draws people from across the world together to document, with text and image, the events and activities of their day. The goal of the project is to weave together the journals of participants into a resource that seeks to answer, “Just what do digital humanists really do?” DayofDH seeks parallel activities to disseminate DH on that date via the website, which is currently in development. All ideas, particularly those that are multilingual, are welcome. Please visit or Twitter (@dayofdh and #dayofDH) for more information.

The annual TEI Consortium Members’ Meeting and Conference is held every September/October/November, and brings together members of and contributors to the TEI community to share research, showcase tools and techniques as well as provide a report of the state of the TEI-C as part of the Members’ Business Meeting. They are now seeking applications to host the conference and members? meeting for 2018 and 2019.

The Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) is a consortium which collectively develops and maintains a standard for the representation of texts in digital form. Its chief deliverable is a set of Guidelines which specify encoding methods for machine-readable texts, chiefly in the humanities, social sciences and linguistics. Since 1994, the TEI Guidelines have been widely used by libraries, museums, publishers, and individual scholars to present texts for online research, teaching, and preservation. In addition to the Guidelines themselves, the Consortium provides a variety of resources and training events for learning TEI, information on projects using the TEI, software developed for or adapted to the TEI, and an annual conference and members? meeting. In August of 2017, the TEI Consortium and community as a whole will receive the esteemed Antonio Zampolli Prize from the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations.
