2017 TAPAS Advisory Board | Welcome!

We are excited to welcome our newly elected TAPAS Advisory Board for 2017!

Thank you to those who participated in the process, and to the TEI-C for running the elections.

Interested in a more active role in the development of the TAPAS project? Consider the following opportunities for participating:


Teaching with the TEI? Mentoring students or the development of student projects using the TEI? Looking for curricular resources or community conversations on TEI pedagogy? Consider joining other TAPAS members working with us to develop TAPAS Classroom!

TAPAS has received a new grant from the NEH to develop TAPAS Classroom, which will include enhancements to the TAPAS reading interface and project spaces to support teachers and students in their study of the TEI.
