Le livre inscriptible. Candidate statement: My technical skills in TEI are very modest. The problem with TEI is less and less technical, to my mind. The TEI needs to be included in a scalable technical ecosystem. I'm not interested in manual encoding but in automated encoding, in order to implement TEI workflows in large platforms, deeply concerned with cost issues. Otherwise, for the publishing industry, semantics needs are often less important than visual needs.
As a conclusion, my concerns are : scalability, costs and rendering. My main interests are in the development of annotated language resources corpora, lexica, dictionaries, books , both from a language technology and digital library perspective, and preferably the combination of the two. Most of my work is in research projects but I am also an assistant professor at the University of Ljubljana and am involved in teaching at several universities.
I have also been active in the area of digital humanities, partially through enabling the production of various TEI-encoded resources e. I have also been a member of the TEI Council in Candidate statement: If elected to the TEI board of directors I would concentrate on the bringing the TEI closer to the language technology community, where there has recently been a movement toward TEI esp. As priorities I see making TEI better interoperable with other language technology standards, esp.
He holds a Ph. I turned quite naturally to TEI by applying to textual information encoding the principle of "not to reinvent the wheel," the second nature of computer scientists when they program algorithms. Since then I have assisted many projects to implement the TEI, mainly but not only for lexicometric analysis. I routinely use TEI as a way to contractually define the encoding of texts between people and between people and software. In doing so, my goal is to help provide information on the software tools available to prepare, operate and use in a broad way TEI encoded resources for scientific analysis, publication, etc.

Prior to this, he has worked as an archaeologist, a computer science lecturer, and in scientific publishing. During the s and s he was a major figure in the community around the TeX typesetting system. Sebastian has represented the University of Oxford on the Board of Directors from to , and was the Directors' nominee to the Technical Council until the end of He was elected to the Council in He has taken a very large part in much of the work of the Consortium since , and is part of the current TEI editorial support team at Oxford.
Some of his achievements are:.
Candidate statement: If elected to the Council, Sebastian will continue to work on the technical architecture of the TEI, and strive to make it suitable for more and more applications. His main personal interest is in using the TEI for authoring new documents, and in the relationship of TEI to semantic web technologies. Candidate statement: The greatest asset that I would bring to the Council, should I return to it I served one term , is fifteen years' practical experience in applying TEI-based markup to a mountain of very heterogeneous material.
I have spent most of the past ten years managing the three Text Creation Partnership TCP projects Early English Books Online, Evans early American imprints, and Eighteenth-Century Collections Online , which have together produced a significant corpus of so far more than 40, TEI-encoded books and a billion words, and hope to more than double those totals. Among them appears nearly every oddity of language, genre and format that early modern authors and printers could devise. Background: "Managing" TCP means daily engagement with issues of capture and markup I am responsible for most of our schemas, their customization, and their documentation ; with workflow and metadata management; and with training.

I will be leading TEI workshops this fall, but also daily supervise a staff of about 16 markup editors distributed amongst five centers in three countries; indirectly also the thousands of taggers and keyers employed by conversion firms who do the initial markup, trying hopefully to keep them all more or less consistent. I am accustomed to soliciting advice and building a consensus when possible, but am also unhappily accustomed to the need to make daily policy decisions on markup questions, even when no consensus or advice is available.
The constraints of the projects I manage have reinforced my native inclination toward simplicity, transparency, flexibility, and pragmatism.

Continued internationalization of Hypotheses, with the opening of platforms in German, Spanish and Portuguese. We believe that Cixous invents a new original literature, which gives her a particular place in modern literature: writing in strobe, where the story comes alive, different themes connect up, and words form various figures according to the precipitous speeds of reading and association Deleuze b: , translation modified. Already in Proust and Signs, Deleuze understands style as a matter of signs shaking at variable speeds Deleuze We know that with the powers of affect and being affected, the movements of speed and slowness constitute the two axes, latitudinal and longitudinal, of any assemblage [agencement].
Derrida , he lodges her writing at the crossroads of speed and life, in a movement where the infinite speed of the letter meets the absolute powers of life. The speed that Deleuze concedes to Cixous is both a speed of writing, composing, and a speed of reading, receiving, and so the stroboscopic method consists of highlighting a scene in a discontinuous and diffracted way, by alternating light and darkness. The one and the other set up a writing scene that never stops breaking-up, and by the effect of a breaking-in of the unconscious, they place within the meaningful range a pack of phonological terms, a dance of phonemes where the body of the letter opens up and where language displays its genetic matter.
In the gallop of letters that earn their autonomy, that extract themselves from the bodies that shelter them or continue in other bodies, the quasi-biological processes of meiosis and division adjoin the processes of mitosis, doubling and proliferation. Condensation and displacement, the dream mechanisms, do not translate at the level of writing but they are performed by the materials of language that auto-generate by amputation or outgrowth. Interpenetration, palimpsests, descent in the underground [la soute] of words, redistribution of their magical virtualities, listening to incessant nomadism Taken in the paradox of Zeno, the conscience of Achilles mixed with Penthesilea as a writer who will never catch up the text as a slow and steady turtle that sweeps in from the outside.
At the moment, I am trying to grasp the mysteries of the passage to reveal them to you, this is an attempt to write what goes much faster than my consciousness and my hand. When I write I do nothing intentionally, otherwise stop. One should play with the fast and just language as a honest musician.
Language, as blessed as it comes, bears innumerable resources of acceleration, and it is why it comes closer to vital processes that go faster than lightening. A text comes to me too fast for my slowness of recording. What is to be done? I take note of the gust [la rafale]. My sentence keeps something of this telegraphy. A book is quickly written Cixous It is when everything is at stake, in a fertilisation of writing by the dream, decanting from the dream of writing to the writing of the dream as soon as the writer and the reader equip themselves with new organs of perception.
The speed of writing is also its emergency, its race against time, or also its momentum to beat death [prendre la mort de vitesse], to climb on its back and write on its vertebrae. Writing: a way of leaving no space for death, of pushing back forgetfulness, of never letting oneself be surprised by the abyss.
Because of a dead person [un mort]. In fact, the writing only emerges once we have crossed the Acheron and endured the loss of the self, the dissolving of all mastery. From the locus of his death, he gives birth to the departed, strangers and ghosts. It is also to work towards a deconstruction of phallocentrism by the joint creation of a writing that is brought outside the space of the discourse of mastery.
Woman must write her body, must make up the unimpeded tongue that bursts partitions, classes, and rhetorics, orders and codes. Another way of producing, of communicating, where each one is always far more than one, where her power of identification puts the same to rout. She proceeds by lapse and bounds. One does not come without the other. The law that blocked the access to feminine jouissance, uncontrolled and unbound jouissance, by its subversion, then becomes the medium.
This new language bears inside itself the trace of the elsewhere that it had to cross to pick the forbidden fruit.
The negative imperative comes back on the scene of jouissance. The writing that is fit for the striking powers of the outside uses its passivity Lyotard , its becoming-passive is the condition of its accession. Beset and dictated by the written word, H. My work is to translate emotions into writings. First we sense [nous sentons].

Then, I write. This act of writing generates the author. I write the genesis that comes before the author. I have to tell the violence of writing. I want to write what I cannot write. The book helps me. The book misleads me and turns me away. He wants to write. I love books that are written in spite of me, that agree with my ten reasons [qui ont raison de mes dix raisons], that break the tablet of laws and disavow the author.
But neither can we foresee them, nor can we order them. She sets these voices free by changing their composition. We could call this a co-demiurge. The book is a traveller that comes from very far, from the back of the firewood of the unconscious, and that chooses to take up residence in the creatures that welcome the reading of these signs. When the book has the chance to come close to H. Books come to people who give their bodies to their tropism.
But the speed, the acceleration and the wild race of the letters is also, and perhaps emphatically, the dance of the whirling dervish around the impossible book: the book-that-should-be-but-will- never-be-written. The entire oeuvre of H. No matter how much it is nowhere, how much it is out of reach, how much it is only nameable by what it is not, it does not only derive from a negative theology.
If the unwritable book is the motor of all the others, perhaps it is already diffracted in all those other books since it may be none of them but all of them at the same time. Perhaps it is nowhere else than in all its avatars that haunt as a spectre? By subverting the past, present and future geometries and by handicapping the topologies, it is nowhere, hence everywhere.
A variation unfolds the modalities: the book that resists its writing stage both cannot be but also should not be. However, from a different point of view, it is the Outside inscription [le Hors inscriptible], the Post-Book, split of all relations, the Outside text [le Hors texte], that is both smuggled in the landscapes of the other books but also that breaks out of them in a radical way.

It is the surplus, the line of flight, in a perpetual escape that prevents the penultimate, formed by the constellation of written books, from closing up on the ultimate dance. Yet, she is standing in front of the law of the book that she will not write.
