Announcement

Argument

The COST “Medioevo Europeo” Working Group 3 (Dictionaries and texts) is organising a six-day training school that will provide an introduction to the creation and use of textual corpora in the historical and linguistic research.

This summer school is intended for all students and researchers working on medieval textual data, with a (limited) knowledge of IT tools. The purpose of our training school is to show, in theory and practice, how to assemble, encode and analyse digitised medieval texts. The first day will provide an overview of the Linux environment, and will be followed by a full day on the creation of an annotated textual corpus (day 2). The third and fourth days will be devoted to textual analysis, followed by a day on statistical analysis tools (day 5). The last day will focus on the relationship between corpora and lexicography and related issues (day 6).

Participants should bring their own personal computers (with at least 20 Gb of free space), and a digital copy of the texts they plan to work on. Most courses will be taught in French, but technical support will be offered in other European languages (German, English, Spanish, Catalan, French, Italian and Polish) as well.

Application and Enrollment

Scientific committee will select max. 20 students.

Note: Students must be citizens of one of COST Countries (http://www.cost.eu/about_cost/cost_countries). Please send applications consisting of a cover letter and a CV to Susanna Allés Torrent (susannalles@imf.csic.es – subject: “Registration Training School”)

before March 31th 2014.

The courses will be free of charge, but transport and accommodation are to be paid by the trainees; accommodations up to 40 € per night are available.

With the European COST funding, ten participants are eligible for a grant of about 600 €.
