Marco Büchler & Greta / Emily Franzini (Université de Göttingen)1
From a research question to the right model for detecting Historical Text Reuse

Text reuse or intertextuality is one of the main subjects of interest in the Digital Humanities. This talk is an introduction to the field of historical text reuse detection, its objectives and challenges. Furthermore, this interactive presentation will illustrate the process of finding the right parameters and settings to strike the right precision/recall balance while running computational text reuse analyses. The use case presented will be the comparison between the books of Mark and Luke in the Bible.

V. Christlein : Automatic Handwriting Analysis – From Scribe to Script Type Classification

Dans le cadre du programme e.philologie PSL (ENC, EPHE, ENS, EHESS) :
Lundi 27 mars 17-19h, salle Quicherat, ENC, rue Richelieu 65, métro Pyramides.

Vincent Christlein (Université de Erlangen)1
Automatic Handwriting Analysis – From Scribe to Script Type Classification. 

Digital libraries, such as Gallica, monasterium.net, or the Vatican’s DigiVatLib, are amassing digitizations of medieval manuscripts. However, those digital copies are often produced without any or only little metadata. This is problematic when trying to actually work scientifically with the data. Enriching the metadata for these collections often requires human experts, making it a time-consuming and expensive task. In this context, methods derived from the field of computer vision are explored to automatically compute missing information such as the script type, the date, or the writer. The talk will start explaining a method for writer recognition based on bag-of-(visual) words. While this method works very good for contemporary data, historical data still poses a challenge, where factors such as decorations or background artifacts might influence a correct assignment. Possibilities to deal with historical data will be shown before proceeding with two other tasks: the classification of medieval Latin script types and the dating of medieval charters.

Appel à contributions : Encoding Data for Digital Discovery (ASOR 2017)

A la suite de la première session “Encoding Data for Digital Collaboration” à l’occasion de la réunion annuelle de l’American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR)  2016 à San Antonio, Amy Gansell de l’université St John’s (New York) et Vanessa Juloux (EPHE, PSL) renouvellent cette session pour les trois prochaines années. La prochaine réunion annuelle se tiendra à Boston, du 15 au 18 novembre.

Résumé : Encoding Data for Digital Discovery

Description: Data encoding entails an analog-to-digital conversion in which the characteristics of an object, text, image, or archaeological site can be represented in a specialized format for computer handling. Once encoded, data can be stored, sorted, and analyzed through a variety of computer-based techniques ranging from specialized data-mining algorithms to user-friendly mobile apps. Especially when using linked open data, researchers around the world can collaborate on the collection, encoding, and analysis of data. A single encoded corpus could be analyzed concurrently by multiple projects, and encoded data can be linked across corpuses to facilitate broader, potentially interdisciplinary, studies.

This three-year session offers a venue for the presentation of methodologies, projects, and discoveries based on encoding or encoded data. We describe and demonstrate a wide spectrum of research that will include studies of stratigraphy, object typologies, provenance, cultural heritage, epigraphy, e-philology, and prosopography. Ultimately we will show the value of cyber-research as a powerful resource for revealing otherwise imperceptible information about ancient Near Eastern time. We welcome art historians, historians, epigraphers, philologists, anthropologists, and archaeologists, including prehistorians, Bible scholars, Hittitologists, Egyptologists, Aegeanists, and Byzantinists. This session will inspire new networks and designs for digital collaboration.

Lundi 23 janvier 17-19h, salle Delisle, ENC, rue Richelieu 65, métro Pyramides.

Dr. Günter Mühlberger (Université d’Innsbruck)
Trankribus: A Virtual Research Environment for Digital Humanities Scholars1.

Recent progress in the computer science makes it possible to automatically recognize historical handwritten texts with satisfying results. The implications of this technology for humanities scholars are manifold and not only comprise computer assisted transcriptions, but offers also improved possibilities for keyword spotting, information extraction and the involvement of volunteers. The Virtual Research Environment Transkribus is an attempt to make the technology available to humanities scholars and other user groups. The talk will provide insights into Transkribus, but also give some background information on the EU H2020 project READ2 (Recognition and Enrichment of Archival Documents).

Digital Tools for Historical Corpora: Automating Source Criticism, Ur-text Reconstruction and More.

The availability of large digitized historical corpora presents myriad challenges and opportunities. This talk will present an overview of some of the key problems presented by historical corpora, including the need for text preprocessing (correcting transcription errors, punctuating raw text, opening abbreviations, and morphological tagging), authorship analysis, identifying cross-references and parallel texts, and stemma and ur-text reconstruction. We will focus in depth on two especially interesting challenges: source analysis of multi-author documents (including Hebrew biblical books) and ur-text reconstruction from multiple noisy textual witnesses.

Venue: Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften (Karlsplatz 4, Heidelberg)

Concluding conference on the project Der digital turn in den Altertumswissenschaften: Wahrnehmung – Dokumentation – Reflexion (Stelios Chronopoulos, Felix K. Maier, Anna Novokhatko)

Digital text analysis is increasing in prominence throughout the humanities. The ever growing availability of data has opened scholars to the possibilities of quantitative text analysis as a method of learning about the form and content of text. Greek and Latin text analysis in particular poses new questions through the development of text analysis tools and technologies.

The 2-day conference is planned to discuss best practices in methods, methodology, tools and technology and hermeneutical reflections on text analysis.

This Call for Papers is oriented particularly to all kind of digital projects on Ancient Greek and Latin texts based on central questions such as: Continuer la lecture de Appel à communications : Digital Classics III: Re-thinking Text Analysis

Wido van Peursen : Identifying linguistic changes by syntactic variation: the case of the Hebrew Bible

Dans le cadre du programme e.philologie PSL (ENC, EPHE, ENS, EHESS) :
Lundi 14 novembre 17-19h, salle Delisle, ENC, rue Richelieu 65, métro Pyramides.

Wido van Peursen (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)1.
Identifying linguistic changes by syntactic variation: the case of the Hebrew Bible

The Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer (ETCBC), VU University Amsterdam, has built a richly annotated linguistic database of the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament (OT) and explores ways to apply DH methods to investigate old and new questions related to OT studies.
One of those old questions concerns the character of the linguistic diversity in the Old Testament and the best way to account for it. Over the last decades this question has again sparked much interest, leading to a broad range of explanations such as differences in time of origin, genre, dialect, the influence of neighbouring languages, individual styles of the authors, or transmission history. Fierce debates have led to a flow of publications. The significance of many contributions to the debate is tempered by limitations such as a focus on only one or a few of books, methodological presuppositions and a focus on lexical items set phrases or morphosyntactic phenomena.
