€150 – €200

In the past few decades, digital editing and digitisation of archival documents have been rapidly gaining prominence. Aiming to cater for both of these branches of Digital Humanities, our summer school offers an in-depth, hands-on curriculum to familiarise students with basic and more advanced tools in the field. Apart from acquiring a set of technical skills (including Command Line, HTML, CSS, TEI-XML XPath, XSLT, and eXist-db), our programme includes the more general practical guidelines on how to make a digital edition.

As digital publications are reaching a stage of maturity and scholarly editors are becoming increasingly aware of the seemingly endless possibilities of hybrid or fully Digital Scholarly Editions, the impact of the digital medium on the field of Textual Criticism has become undeniable. As a result of this ‘digital turn’, textual scholars are now faced with new challenges and opportunities that have called for a re-evaluation of the field’s established theoretical and practical framework. For the thirteenth annual conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship (ESTS), organized in association with the Digital Scholarly Editing Initial Training Network ‘DiXiT’, we intend to face this new direction in textual scholarship head-on, by focussing on the recent developments in textual scholarship that are instigated by this reassessment of the theories, practices, and methods of scholarly editing in general, and of the Digital Scholarly Edition (DSE) in particular.

Digital Scholarly Editing and Textual Criticism

October 4, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm
Hof van Liere, Prinsstraat 13
Antwerpen, 2000 Belgium

The production of digital critical editions is a crucial issue for anyone working on texts written in pre-modern times, philologists, historians, philosophers etc. Yet, there are many different practices, and concepts behind the digital representation of a critical apparatus are difficult to grasp. Besides, there are still very little tools supporting the creation and processing of digital critical editions. The workshop includes talks and presentations by philologists and DH specialists introducing and discussing the very nature of critical editions as well as the digital representation of a critical apparatus. Furthermore, the state-of-the-art in terms of automatic collation tools and methods for processing and publishing digital critical editions will be assessed.

Complexities of Project Logistics

Typically, editorial projects – digital or non-digital – get funding for a limited time span, and that time span is usually not sufficient to edit and publish the source or body of sources that the project set out to publish. Often, more funding will be sought, but, as technology and time have moved on, and as one can’t reasonably just repeat the first grant application, the focus of a follow-up project will be slightly different. In a third step, one may ask for a neighbouring source collection to be included in the project, or a new tool added to the collection, dependent on what funders at that moment in time seem willing to support.

Projects may end up with multiple collections and datasets, digitized according to multiple standards using multiple (sometimes obsolete) technologies. Some may have started out on paper, and have ridden the waves of databases, HTML, CD-ROM, XML, mass digitisation approaches and Linked open data. Even projects that have consistently worked within a TEI framework may have had to ingest documents that use different TEI dialects. These technological complexities may be increased by constraints in overall planning and everyday workflow, including time and budget management, especially if there are cross-institutional collaborations, interdependencies on deliverables, strict deadlines, staff mobility etc. The workshop will discuss these and other complexities of project logistics.

The Born Digital Record of the Writing Process: Discussing Concepts of Representation for the Digital Scholarly Edition

The hands-on workshop will introduce participating archivists, philologists and researchers from the humanities into forensic imaging of hard drives, inspection and analysis of forensic images. Two phases of analysis of the process will be covered during the workshop: a) forensic imaging, triage and preservation of hard drives in the archive and b) philological recovery of textual versions of a writing process from a digital forensic image (mounting, inspection of temporary files, undelete, file carving, drive slack analysis, timeline analysis, grep) and by low-level inspection of files (fast save artifacts, RSID-tags). Depending on participants’ interest other scenarios, e.g. cloud services, can also be addressed. To avoid legal issues, participants will work with forensic images created for this workshop’s training purposes with Christian Moch’s Forensig forensic image generator (Moch 2009, Moch Freiling 2009).

The DHBenelux conference welcomes contributions and participants from all areas of research and teaching in Digital Humanities. While the conference has a focus on recent advances in Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg, we do warmly welcome contributions from outside the Benelux. The language of the conference is international English. We hope that we may welcome many scholars to the European scientific meeting platform that DHBenelux will constitute in summer 2015 for the Digital Humanities.
