Digital editions

Genetic edition of Goethe's Faust

Homepage: http://www.faustedition.net/

The edition focuses on providing all relevant manuscripts of Faust in a science-based way for the first time by making the facsimiles and transcriptions available. Furthermore it aims to reconstruct the genetic relations between them and therefore seek for visualisation strategies in the electronic medium so that a general public will have the opportunity to have a look inside the making of one of the most important literary works in German language.

Keywords: genetic editing, manuscripts, multi-layered annotations

Contact: Fotis Jannidis

Literary remains of Franz Brümmer

Homepage: http://bruemmer.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/nlbruemmer/

Franz Brümmer, a German scholar active in the late 19th and early 20th century published several editions of his seminal lexicon incorporating writer’s biographies over his lifetime. His literary remains contain an archive of the material Brümmer used for his publications and is edited by this project in a collaborative, web-based way. Students in Literary Studies transcribe the material in an online editing environment as part of their curriculum.

Keywords: archive edition, manuscripts, transcription tools

Contact: Editorial board

Tools

CollateX

Homepage: http://collatex.sourceforge.net/

CollateX is a Java software for collating textual sources, for example, to produce a critical apparatus. As the designated successor of Peter Robinson's Collate it is developed jointly by several partner institutions and individuals under the umbrella of the European initiative "Interedition".

Keywords: collation, micro-services, critical apparatus

Contact: Joris van Zundert

eXist

Homepage: http://exist-db.org/

eXist-db is an open source database management system built using XML technology. It stores XML data according to the XML data model and features efficient, index-based XQuery processing.

Keywords: infrastructure, XML database, XQuery

Contact: Leif-Jöran Olsson

Juxta

Homepage: http://www.juxtasoftware.org/

Juxta is an open-source cross-platform tool for comparing and collating multiple witnesses to a single textual work. The software allows users to set any of the witnesses as the base text, to add or remove witness texts, to switch the base text at will, and to annotate Juxta-revealed comparisons and save the results.

Keywords: collation, textual criticism, critical apparatus, visualization

NINES/Collex

Homepage: http://www.nines.org/

NINES (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-Century Electronic Scholarship) is a scholarly organization devoted to forging links between the material archive of the nineteenth century and the digital research environment of the twenty-first.

The NINES Collex interface is at the center of these efforts. It aims to gather the best scholarly resources in the field and make them fully searchable and interoperable; and to provide an online collecting and authoring space in which researchers can create and publish their own work.

Keywords: community portal, federated search, virtual research environment

Repertorium of Old Bulgarian Literature and Letters with Computer Tools

Homepage: http://clover.slavic.pitt.edu/repertorium/

The Repertorium Initiative corpus includes over 350 Slavic manuscripts (from collections in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Russia, Serbia, Sweden, United Kingdom, etc.) which are described analytically in XML format. The core DTD follows TEI P5 guidelines with some new elements, created especially for Slavic manuscripts.

Repertorium Initiative is closely coordinated with three other projects: 1. Metadata and Electronic Catalogues, which defines terminology necessary for research work on medieval manuscript; 2. Libri Slavici, a joint undertaking of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and the University of Sofia in the field of bibliography on medieval written heritage; 3. Repertorium Workstation, identifying the typology of the content of manuscripts and texts with the aid of computational tools.

Together, all four projets share the common structure of the TEI documents and use a common XSLT library for transforming documents to a variety of formats (including XML, HTML, and SVG), thus providing a sound base for the exchange of information and for electronic publishing.

Working team: Prof. Anissava Miltenova (head of the project, IL BAS), Andrej Boyadžiev (Sofia University), specialists in the Department of Old Bulgarian Literature (E. Tomova, M. Yovcheva, A. Stoykova, R. Stankova, I. Kuzidova. R. Koycheva, M. Petrova-Taneva, D. Radoslavova).

Text and Semantics: Topic Maps for Philosophical Text Analysis

Homepage: http://textandsemantic.signum.sns.it/

Signum gained a remarkable experience in analysing and processing humanistic texts, which resulted in the development of a search engine for XML documents: TauRo-core.

In this research field, in collaboration with the Istituto Nazionale di Studi sul Rinascimento, a demand has emerged for a system aimed at developing semantic research and aids for the reading and interpretation of philosophic texts. In particular the system allows a guided reading by means of a schematic visualisation of the concepts, represented with topic maps in accordance with XTM standard, and allows to search, by the TauRo-core search engine, in text and in concepts themselves. Since the different interpretations (topic maps) are described through the XTM standard that is an XML text, we can use TauRo-core to search in concepts.

A general objective of this project is to create a system for managing interpretations, by topic maps, of philosophical texts and at present it shows a demo on Giordano Bruno's text De gli Eroici furori.

The project is in line with the theoretical view according to which it is possible to pass, in the digital processing of humanities texts, from the expressive (marked up stings of characters) to the interpretative level (semantic descriptions and conceptualizations). It was carried out through the creation of a tool for semantic search and guided reading, and through the implementation of an algorithm to create a data structure (an MVD graph) that can be visited by an algorithm of the same kind of that used for textual variants.

A future aim of the project is to use the representation of interpretative variants by an MVD graph to redefine specific readings and markup structures of the expression of the text, in compliance with a dynamic model of textual variation, connecting variant readings and variant interpretations.

Keywords: Textual variants, Interpretative variants, Semantic description

TextGrid

Homepage: http://www.textgrid.de/

The joint project TextGrid, A virtual research environment for the humanities aims to support access to and exchange of data in the arts and humanities by means of modern information technology (the grid). In 2006 development began on a web-based platform, one which will provide services and tools for researchers for analysis of text data in various digital archives - independently of data format, location and software.

TextGrid serves as a virtual research environment for philologists, linguists, musicologists and art historians. As a single point of entry to the virtual research environment, TextGridLab provides integrated access to specialized tools, services and content. TextGridRep is a long-term archive for research data in the humanities embedded in a grid infrastructure, which will ensure availability and access to its research data as well as interoperability. The joint research project TextGrid is part of the D-Grid initiative, and is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for the period starting June 1, 2009 to May 31, 2012 (reference number: 01UG0901A).
