What does it take to publish an edition?

What this talk is not, is a lesson in textual scholarship. What it aims to be instead, is a rough guide to the complicated interweave of standards, technologies and logistical issues behind the publishing process, and some advice on how to navigate this maze. We’ll then try to follow a chain of serendipitous events which eventually led to a proposal for an editors-first, standards-always and community-foremost tool that was brought to life in the new version 5 of the TEI Publisher. I will talk about some projects that were our inspirations, guinea pigs, challenges and benefactors (usually all at once) and hope to discuss the future of editions with you!

Cambridge Digital Library has been supporting content-driven Digital Humanities projects since the online launch of the Isaac Newton papers in 2011, covering everything from 3,000 year-old Oracle Bones to aerial photography from the 1940s. This talk will explore some of the developments during this period – imaging as an investigative research activity, digital resources as datasets, the formalisation of digital humanities in Cambridge, and the growing emphasis on collaboration in the field as a whole. In this context, the speaker will focus on IIIF as an open and collaborative technology which is having a huge impact not just on the technical possibilities for the sharing and analysis of image data, but also on the culture of digital humanities.

What We See on the Screen

However you define digital humanities (DH), it often revolves around digitized objects at libraries and archives. In particular, such digital reproductions are used within digital scholarly editions. There, the digital facsimiles are not only illustrations supporting a scholarly text transcription, but can also serve as research tools and instruments for accountability and accessibility. Nevertheless, the “critical gaze” of scholarly editors and DH is directed at text transcriptions, whereas digital facsimiles are often uncritically taken at face value. In this talk, I will address some of the critical considerations libraries face when digitizing their holdings, with significant bearing on the value and (re)usability of the digital reproductions when placed within a scholarly context.

Franco Moretti vs Michel Charles ou les paradoxes de la distance

Je m’intéresserai au procédé baptisé ’opérationnalisation’ que Franco Moretti décrit dans sa contribution à La Littérature au laboratoire (trad. fr. Ithaque Editions, 2016). Les ordinateurs tournent à plein régime. Graphes, cartes et arbres sont soigneusement produits. On est en pleine distant reading. Rien à voir, dira-t-on, avec ce qui occupe un Michel Charles, champion de la microlecture ‘à la française’, close reader compulsif et fier de l’être. Et pourtant, et comme on va voir, il s’agit là peut-être d’un faux antagonisme. Intéressons-nous, pour parler comme Proust, au ‘côté Moretti’ de Michel Charles, démarche qui revient à apercevoir symétriquement un ‘côté Michel Charles’ chez Franco Moretti. Bref, nous allons, au pays des humanités numériques, mettre les choses sens dessus dessous, pour une meilleure hygiène intellectuelle.

Gender and the Riddle of Literary Quality

We as readers like to think that we don’t have bias, that we can judge books quite objectively. However, when The Riddle of Literary Quality project did a large survey in the world of people who read Dutch-language books, some subtle (and less subtle) gender biases came to light. In this talk, Koolen explains what the team found and the dozen ways she tried to tease out the cause of this bias.

Exploring IIIF for Digital Humanities

In this lecture, the basics of IIIF – International Image Interoperability Framework – are presented through the lens of its key benefits for research in Digital Humanities. As an open data API, IIIF allows for clear and well documented research data management practices, for projects ranging from teaching over scholarly annotation or editing up to data mining.

“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.
