Argument

Objective and the Expected Conference Results

As a follow-up to the realizations from a previous scientific symposium on the Old Book — Cultural-Historical and Scientific Source (Osijek, October 25 and 26, 2013) and the Second Interdisciplinary Scientific Symposium with International Participation titled Literary Heritage Nowadays (Osijek, November 6 and 7, 2015), by virtue of this Conference the organizers would like to facilitate their in-depth analysis and upgrade while especially providing their contribution to a continued study of the opus of the Franciscan esthetician, philosophical-theological writer, Latinist, historian and translator Emerik (Mirko) Pavić (1716 – 1780), whose selected works were dispatched to be digitized within the aforementioned project, on the occasion of his 300th birth anniversary. The anticipated conferential working languages are Croatian and English, and the peer-reviewed papers will be published in the Annals, a scientific journal of the Institute for Scientific and Artistic Work of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Osijek.

Methodology and Scientific Substratum

Epistemologically, combinatory, multidimensional digital humanities (DH) are a modern combination of the old and the new, a bridge surmounting the heritage culture and “classical” humanities, humanities and computer science. As collaboration is one of their basic components, they surpass the ethnic, geographic, political, and religious boundaries, as well as the weltanschauungs. Their openness to public and free source access propagation considerably contribute to that goal.

As such, they are a superstructure for the very computerized processing of the original historical texts or the old books, actually encompassing the following:

  • digitization of a textual original;
  • an intertextual, philosophical-philological, and transmedia reflection of an original;
  • storage in the digital databases, presentation, and further multidisciplinary utilization of the digitized materials.

Interdisciplinary Encompassment

Concerning their interest spheres, digital humanities are explicitly relied on the activities such as the disciplines specified below:

  • humanities connected to the digitized text, especially philology (linguistics and literary theory), philosophy, cultural studies (a versatile origin of texts) and history (archeology, historiography, cultural landscapes, and paleography);
  • computer science, especially on a metalinguistic tagging, data visualization, data mining and computerized statistics;
  • information science, communication science, and modern library studies (bibliothecography), especially on bibliometrics and composition theory;
  • social sciences, especially on cultural analytics and culturomics (a demonstration of dominant cultural trends in a society, based on an analysis of the digitally accessible texts);
  • arts, especially on the digitization of music notation and artistic paintings or photographs, as well as on the digitized texts’ performance.

Eventually, the multifaceted, stratified digital humanities are oriented to the future, equally to the bibliophiles, philologists, philosophers, information scientists, librarians, communication scientists, cultural studies experts, historians, sociologists, artists, and others, so they take into account both types of computer-processed, text-linguistics originals:

  • a digitized old (printed) text;
  • a native digital (literary) text, frequently without an intention to have it hardbound.

Thematic Areas

The Conference will proceed according to the following thematic areas:

  1. Heritage Culture and the Old Books: Digitization Resources and Their Multimedia Presentation;
  2. Historico-Cultural (Re)valorization of Literary Funds;
  3. Native Digital Texts and Digital Publishing;
  4. Digital Humanities as a Multidisciplinary Rendezvous;
  5. Digitized Text as an “Open Horizon”;
  6. The Person and Opus of Emerik Pavić.
