Antwerp DH Summer School 2020: Making a Digital Edition. Basic Skills and Technologies

June 29 - July 3
UAntwerp City Campus, Prinsstraat 13
Antwerp, 2000 Belgium

€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.

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.

Antwerp DH Summer School 2019: Basic Skills for Digital Archives and Editions

July 1, 2019 - July 5, 2019
UAntwerp City Campus, Prinsstraat 13
Antwerp, 2000 Belgium
€200

In Digital Humanities, digital editing and digitisation of archival documents are rapidly gaining prominence. Our summer school offers an intensive and practice-oriented 5-day course on making digital editions and managing digital collections. In the context of Digital Archives, participants will acquire a set of basic computer skills (command line, operating systems, and networks) while setting up a IIIF-compliant image server for sharing and reusing facsimiles of literary manuscripts. In the context of Digital Editions, participants will learn to transcribe these images in TEI-compliant XML and prepare their transcriptions for the web.

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.

Demystifying Digitisation: A Hands-On Master Class in Text Digitisation

This two-day workshop offers the perfect opportunity to become better acquainted with some of the main concerns that need to be addressed at the outset of both mass- and ad hoc digitisation projects. The core of the our programme exists of two half-day workshops on software packages that may help the researcher automate some aspects of the transcription process. The first will deal with ABBYY, still one of the best software packages around for OCRing digitised print materials. Focusing on the software’s possible advantages and pitfalls, this workshop will show the participants how to prepare their documents in order to achieve the best OCR results. The second workshop will introduce Transkribus, a software package that has recently made great advancements in optically recognising characters in handwritten materials. The programme will be completed by four (interactive) sessions on related topics that will be organised around these workshops.

Data Visualisation

This three-day workshop will take place from 10 to 12 June 2015 at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, following the DHBenelux 2015 conference hosted at the same location. It offers the perfect opportunity for the conference’s participants (and other interested scholars) to learn how to visualize their data in interesting new ways.

The workshop will be taught by the developers of NodeBox, a data visualization tool created by the Experimental Media Research Group (EMRG). EMRG is a cross domain research group associated with the St. Lucas University College of Arts and Design (Antwerp, Belgium). During the works­hop, partici­pants will learn how to cap­ture, prepare, refine and visualize their data; gain insights in the theory of data visualisation; and start to look at data in a dif­ferent way.

Python

The focus is on text analysis using the popu­lar scrip­ting language Python, which is rapidly becoming the standard program­ming language for computa­tional text ana­lysis in digi­tal Humani­ties.

Covered topics include: basic text proces­sing tasks; using text-mining tool­kits such as Pattern and NLTK; applications of text proces­sing (e.g., sentiment mining, topic classi­fication, auto­matic clustering); XML parsing (e.g., TEI-XML) in Python.

For the work­shop, the instruc­tors will make use of a so-called Python note­book – a success­ful and enga­ging teaching for­mat. Python notebooks are a course book and coding ‘sandbox’ at once. Experience with previous EADH and DARIAH-DE Summer Schools in Nijmegen and Göttingen has shown that this format is extremely engaging for resear­chers who have had no signi­ficant expo­sure to digi­tal methods yet.
