Digital Humanities Observatory and Trinity College Dublin are delighted to announce a five day summer school, ‘From Metadata to Linked Data’, a joint Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS) / COST (Interedition) training school. The Summer School will feature seminars in the morning and hands-on workshops in the afternoon. The week will be dedicated to exploring the theories, methods, and tools to create a technology-enabled, distant approach to reading. Distant reading, a term coined by the Stanford-based literary critic, Franco Moretti, relies on computational methods to generate abstract models to 'read' large textual corpora. In his 2006 article entitled 'What do you do with a Million Books', Greg Crane gave the digital humanities community a shorthand for reading in the modern age. His article points toward a number of exciting possibilities for a paradigm shift in humanities scholarship but realizing this ambition has proven more difficult than theorizing it.
See Summer Institute: From Metadata to Linked Data for more information.
Birmingham, 7 June - 9 June 2011
From the 7th to the 9th of June 2011 a meeting of Working Group 2 ('Prototyping') was held at Birmingham University, courtesty of ITSEE, the Institute of Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing. Scholars from ITSEE in Birmingham and INTF in Münster have been collating manuscript transcriptions with Collate2 since 1997 and still are using it. The purpose of this meeting was to bring these users together with CollateX developers in order to test, improve and implement CollateX, in particular to create a browser based interface for collating manuscript witnesses.
CollateX is a new object-oriented and open source application for collating textual sources, for example, to produce a critical apparatus. CollateX is led by Ronald Haentjens Dekker from the Huygens Institute, Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, but has also had contributions from several individuals and institutions under the umbrella of the European initiative "Interedition". (Get the CollateX source code from Launchpad.)
The Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing, University of Birmingham, researches manuscript traditions and produces electronic editions, current projects include the International Greek New Testament Project and the Birmingham Virtual Manuscript Room. (Read More about ITSEE.)
The Institute for New Testament Textual Research, University of Münster, produces several New Testament editions and online tools for New Testament Scholarship. (Read more about INTF.)
Darmstadt, 28 February - 4 March 2011
The 6th Interedition on interoperability and light weight infrastructures for digital scholarship ran from 28 February to 4 March 2011. The bootcamp was being organized by a joint group from Technische Universität Darmstadt and the Universität Trier.
The primary objective of the bootcamp was the development of prototypes for interoperable ‘microservice’ tools for text scholarship and digital editions. Another important objective was to give developers and early stage researchers an opportunity to meet and share their own projects and experiences with tool interoperability in textual scholarship.
See Darmstadt Bootcamp for more information.
Pisa, 23-24 November 2010
- Interedition is calling a Management Committee meeting in Pisa (venue: CNR) on Tuesday 23 November 2010. This Management Committee meeting is adjoining the 2010 Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship (ESTS, see: http://www.textualscholarship.eu/conference-2010.html).
- Joint meeting of Working Groups 1, 2 and 3 on the morning of Wednesday 24 November 2010 to coordinate and agree on the different proof of concept developments, funding possibilities and various other initiatives being undertaking in those Working Groups. (Venue: CNR.)
- Meet up with the stemmatologists of the ESF COMSt project (http://www1.uni-hamburg.de/COMST/) on the afternoon of Wednesday 24 November 2010. This meeting will focus on tool development for digital textual scholarship that is related to both Interedition and COMST and to look for possible mutual opportunities for research and development: the aim is to elucidate the questions, aims, methods and results of both groups, and find common ways forward. (Venue: CNR.)
