Résumé

The summer school offers an application of digital humanities to the study of poetry through practical learning of the latest technologies in this field.

Annonce

Spanish research center LiNDH is organising the summer school “Digital technologies applied to the study of poetry” with the involvement of DARIAH-EU.

LINDH is a research center on Digital Humanities at UNED that works as a hub for innovation, consultancy and training intended for researchers and projects in Spanish.

Presentation

The summer school offers an application of digital humanities to the study of poetry through practical learning of the latest technologies in this field. It adopts an approach to the study of poetry based on the framework of Digital Humanities, and proposes a practical analysis of the digital technologies which are currently applied for different types of poetic analysis: text marking and digital academic editing in XML-TEI, semantic web and linked data for conceptual and ontological modelling, natural language processing for metric and phonological analysis, and application of data mining technology and stylometry with R. All of this information will be accompanied by presentations from international specialists on their findings and learning experience from using such tools and technologies.

Objectives

  • Provide researchers with knowledge and understanding of the different digital humanities technologies and their application, specifically for textual analysis: TEI-XML, LOD, PLN, R.
  • Reveal to participants the different technological and theoretical perspectives to address a single subject or philological concept as poetry, and provide them with simple tools they can use without extensive programming.
  • Generate materials and tools which can be applied to the analysis of poetry and that researchers can reuse by themselves for their projects.

Course dates

Madrid, 27th of June – 1st of July 2016

Location

Sáenz Torrecilla Conference Room, School of Economic Sciences, UNED

Participant's profile

Researchers in philology and digital humanities, as well as people from other areas interested in the study of poetry. It is not essential to have previous experience in this area, although it is recommended to have some understanding of digital humanities and associated working methodologies.

Methodology

The course will be mainly practical and delivered in a workshop form, although some more theoretical sessions are included.
