Teaching with digital textualities

Text encoding and other digital practices for engaging with texts can be powerful teaching tools. This page collects the resources I have created for teaching with text encoding and for learning new methods of digital research.

Encoding the Archive was created to support Professor Marina Leslie’s Spring 2016 course, Topics in Early Literature: Gender, Sex, and Renaissance Bodies, at Northeastern University. The page offers tips and guidelines, sample encoded texts, assignments, and other resources for classroom-based encoding.

Explorations in Text Analysis outlines several possible approaches for getting started with text analysis—it explains the basic steps for preparing texts for analysis, testing potential text analysis tools, working with test corpora, and moving forward to more complex and involved text analysis practices.
