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.
