Symposium on Cultural Heritage Markup

Cultural Heritage Markup:
Using Markup to preserve, understand, and disseminate cultural heritage materials 
a Balisage pre-conference symposium

Chair: Hugh Cayless 
Duke Collaboratory for Classics Computing (DC3)

Monday August 10, 2015
Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, Bethesda, MD, USA

Markup and markup technologies are used in a wide variety of cultural heritage projects by linguists, students of literature, librarians, historians, curators, and others. Markup is used behind the scenes in archives, libraries, and museums to create and store metadata and the textual content of a wide variety of materials both textual and artefactual. We want to know how you or your project are using markup to preserve, analyze, disseminate, or curate materials of long-term value to society.

Balisage is an excellent venue to discuss both theoretical and practical questions. Is cultural heritage markup essentially different from industrial markup? Is it inherently more heterogeneous, more complex? Are “industrial” tools like XML and HTML really appropriate for cultural heritage materials? How well will standards like TEI and EAD serve us as technology progresses? We dedicate this day to discussion of the challenges and possibilities of markup technologies used in the preservation of our cultural heritage and its transmission to future generations.

We welcome proposals to present at the Symposium. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

	• Representing heterogeneous materials
	• Data modeling to support scholarly research
	• Building for the long term, even after the money has run out
	• Using/repurposing tools that weren’t designed for the kind of thing you’re doing
	• Is XML really appropriate for representing texts of scholarly interest?
	• Is XML really appropriate for representing metatdata about non-textual artefacts?
	• What does it mean for cultural heritage texts to be interoperable? Is it desirable? Is it possible?
	• Shared tag sets. Do shared markup vocabularies (e.g., TEI, EAD, LIDO, CDWA) do more harm than good?

Full papers should be submitted by 17 April 2015. All papers are peer-reviewed — we pride ourselves that you will seldom get a more thorough, skeptical, or helpful review than the one provided by Balisage reviewers.
