“James Joyce's Ulysses into the Digital Age: Forty Years of Steering an Edition through Turbulences of Scholarship and Reception”

Work over seven years with a team of dedicated collaborators produced the three-volume Critical and Synoptic Edition published in 1984. It was received with enthusiasm, yet soon also severely attacked. Meanwhile, its reading text has become the standard Ulysses reference text. Its display of the growth of the text, by contrast, is still to be searched in-depth for its critical potential. The medium to explore that potential is the digital medium. Today’s updating of our digital archive of the 1984 edition is enabling a generation renewal of the Critical and Synoptic Edition of 1984 in book form into a dynamic online Digital Critical and Synoptic Edition in-the-making for James Joyce’s Ulysses.

Towards a Resarch Agenda for Data-driven Approches to Literary Periods

This lecture will first scrutinize recent work in data-driven, quantitative approaches to periodization in literary history for answers to the above-mentioned questions, to then build on this assessment and describe some of the key practical as well as methodological challenges the field is currently facing. Ultimately, what will emerge from this double perspective is a research agenda for data-driven, quantitative approaches to literary periodization, a field of study in which most of the work remains to be done.

Genetic Editing and Textual History. The Case of Goethe's Faust.

In his lecture, Gerrit Brüning introduces the key concepts and features of the Faust edition, which is published in an advanced beta stage (beta.faustedition.net), and nearing completion. The genesis of Goethe’s Faust tragedy spans a period of about 60 years. Individual stages of its conceptual and textual history have survived in hundreds of manuscripts with more than 2000 written pages. The Faust edition gives access to this material, enabling the user to find all witnesses for every single passage of the work and to explore images and transcriptions in an intuitive way.

Digital Forensics in the Humanities: Beyond Philology

This lecture endeavors to shed light on the impact of digital forensics on the historical humanities, discussing sample cases and arguments about born-digital historical primary sources. It will make the case that digital forensic literacy and historical computing knowledge will have to be key components in historical humanities education and political discourse.

Machine Vision Algorithms on Cadaster Plans

Cadaster plans are cornerstones for reconstructing dense representations of the history of the city. However, as some of these handwritten documents are more than 200 years old, the establishment of processing pipeline for interpreting them remains extremely challenging. The talk will present the implementation of an automated process capable of segmenting and interpreting Napoleonic Cadaster Maps of the Veneto Region dating from the beginning of the 19th century. The system extracts the geometry of each of the drawn parcels, classifies, reads and interprets the handwritten labels. This efficient and automated process opens new perspectives to reconstitute the past.

Open Social Scholarship and the Scholarly Edition

This talk considers the nature of editorial methodological experimentation, in particular exploring the scholarly edition in the context of open social scholarship. Open social scholarship involves creating and disseminating research and research technologies to a broad audience of specialists and active non-specialists in ways that are accessible and significant. As a concept, it has grown from roots in open access and open scholarship movements, the digital humanities’ methodological commons and community of practice, contemporary online practices, and public facing “citizen scholarship” to include i) developing, sharing, and implementing research in ways that consider the needs and interests of both academic specialists and communities beyond academia; ii) providing opportunities to co-create, interact with, and experience openly-available cultural data; iii) exploring, developing, and making public tools and technologies under open licenses to promote wide access, education, use, and repurposing; and iv) enabling productive dialogue between academics and non-academics. Our example will be the social edition of the Devonshire MS (BL Add MS 17492), the first sustained example of men and women writing together in the English literary tradition, by a research team using crowd-sourcing technologies and operating in conjunction with an advisory group representing key methodological and area expertise.

Computing Similes in French and English Literary Texts

Similes such as "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" abound in everyday language and are generally said to be particularly creative as well as stylistically relevant in literary texts.  In her talk, Suzanne will discuss the specificities and challenges related to the automatic detection of similes for literary purposes. To illustrate the interest of this task, she will present as case study the use of colour similes in a corpus of French and British novels published between 1810 and 1950.
