The Project “Resources for Research on Tang
Civilization” attempts to provide a wide range of original texts in Chinese pertaining to the research of
the Tang period (7th to 10th century). This includes
histories, annals and administrative documents, but also literary, religious and philosophical works, compilations and encyclopedias. The networked workspace we plan to provide will allow the researcher to navigate in the multifaceted and multidimensional conceptual space and enable him to record his discoveries, and thus contribute to the resource while using it.
We use TEI at different levels in this project. In a
heavily customized version, we capture the texts and our affirmations about them. The customizations mainly
reflect constructs necessary for certain features of
Chinese texts, but are also partly due to special requirements
of our workflow. While we started out using a hand-crafted version derived from a P4 DTD, we later converted our
customization to P5 using ODD. In this presentation,
I will introduce this customization and talk about the
process of developing and applying them.

The effort to establish ADHO began in Tuebingen, at the ALLC/ACH conference in 2002: a Steering Committee was appointed at the ALLC/ACH meeting in 2004, in Gothenburg, Sweden. At the 2005 meeting in Victoria, the executive committees of the ACH and ALLC approved the governance and conference protocols and nominated their first representatives to the ‘official’ ADHO Steering Committee and various ADHO standing committees. The 2006 conference was the first Digital Humanities conference.
