Conference: Digital Classics III: Re-thinking Text Analysis

Date: 12th -13th May 2017

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

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.

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.
