Sarah Stanley (MA ’15) has been elected to the Technical Council of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium, joining a very distinguished international team of experts. The TEI is an international standards group that maintains and develops the TEI Guidelines, one of the major data standards for digital scholarship in the humanities. The Technical Council is responsible for overseeing the ongoing development and publication of the Guidelines and mapping out the future directions for this extremely important and influential standard. Sarah was elected for a two-year term from January 2017 through December 2018, and she is one of the youngest members ever to serve. During her time at Northeastern, Sarah worked at the Women Writers Project and the Early Caribbean Digital Archive, two digital humanities projects that make intensive use of the TEI Guidelines, and her leadership in those projects helped prepare her for this new role. Sarah is currently the Digital Scholarship Support Specialist at the Florida State University libraries.
