The Scholarly Digital Edition and the Humanities. Theoretical approaches and alternative tools

 DigiLab La Sapienza, 3-5 December 2014

Vetreria Sciarra – Via dei Volsci 122, 00185 Roma

(Room 110)

 

Workshop organized by DigiLab - DiXiT Marie Curie Network

The aim of this workshop is to present a critical approach to the digital representation of textual artefacts in the context of Humanities and Social Sciences. While the imperatives of digitization are affecting at a global level our cultural organizations and institutions, it seems necessary to introduce a socio-cultural reflection into the realm of the scholarly digital edition. The workshop is organized in practical and theoretical sessions led by Desmond Schmidt (Queensland University of Technology), Paolo Monella (Università di Palermo) e Domenico Fiormonte (Università Roma Tre). Participants will be guided through the realization of a digital product, experimenting with some innovative digital editions tools and platforms.

The workshop is open to all students registered for postgraduate and doctoral programs (PhD or equivalent) anywhere in the world working in the field of Digital Humanities and Social Sciences. Some basic experience in scholarly editing and textual criticism is recommended.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required for all applicants. Twelve positions are reserved for DiXiT fellows.

The format of the workshop is multicultural, i.e. participants and speakers will be free to speak in their mother tongue or instead use English as lingua franca. All teaching material will be translated in English, except original cultural artifacts. Given the practical nature of the workshop we can accommodate up to 25 participants. 

 

Registration will be open up to November 26!
