Abstract: An important dimension of digital humanities pedagogy involves engaging students with what lies “under the hood”: with the intellectual architecture of familiar tools and resources. Text markup is an especially compelling topic in the literature and history classroom, for a number of reasons. It engages students in a very close analytical examination of the text, and makes the results of that examination explicit. It prompts a discussion of how we read and interpret documents and for what purpose. It supports inquiry into textual materiality, the significance of print cultures, and historical contexts of primary source documents. It offers an introduction to basic methods of editing, annotation, and explication, and it offers an introduction to a set of tools that are increasingly central to digital humanities scholarship—which have significant professional value outside the academy as well. For all of these reasons, the TEI is a tool of growing importance and pedagogical value for the humanities classroom. The TEI Archiving, Publishing, and Access Service (TAPAS) offers a repository-based framework for scholars to publish and archive their TEI-encoded materials, including scholarly editions, text anthologies, digitized archival materials, historical papers, manuscripts, and a wide range of other TEI data.
