<XML>, and its uses in the humanities </XML>
The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is one of the fundamental standards in information technology, and along with SQL, Python, and a few others, XML is one of the most widely used in the digital humanities. In this informal talk, Scott Paul McGinnis (PhD. Candidate in History, UC Berkeley) will introduce XML for a humanities audience, discuss why a researcher might want to learn it, and show some examples from projects in the digital humanities and in his own research on early Chinese history.
