DHOxSS (TEI) 2010

This was really a TEI Summer School running from the 12-14 July 2010 but included parallel workshops on publishing and interrogating your TEI data. It was from this year that we really started thinking of it as a broader DH summer school rather than one particularly on TEI. See http://digital.humanities.ox.ac.uk/dhoxss/2010/.
 

DHOxSS (TEI) 2009

This TEI Summer School ran from the 20-24 July 2009. This included some sessions on publishing and interrogating your TEI data but was still mostly TEI focussed. See http://digital.humanities.ox.ac.uk/dhoxss/2009/.
 

DHOxSS (TEI) 2008 

This TEI Summer School ran from the 21-23 July 2008. This was 3 days of solid TEI teaching, followed by a separate workshop, 24-25 July 2008 on XSLT.  People could register for either or both.  Their schedules have been combined at: http://digital.humanities.ox.ac.uk/dhoxss/2008/.
 
 

Earlier DHOxSS / TEI Summer Schools

If we have a loose definition of 'Summer' ranging from February to November, then TEI Summer Schools were held occasionally over for a decade prior to the earliest one listed here. These were often reprised and taught in other locations as well. These were mostly taught by Lou Burnard, Sebastian Rahtz and James Cummings all from IT Services (or OUCS as it was then called). Some of their materials are preserved in the TEI at Oxford Subversion Repository, but are likely of little interest to modern audiences. Dr James Cummings (IT Services) was the prime driver in migrating the TEI Summer Schools to become full scale Digital Humanities Summer Schools and turning it into a committee-run event. He was the sole director of DHOxSS until 2015 when it had grown so large that Pip Willcox (Bodleian Libraries) joined him as co-director.
