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

July 1 - July 5
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.

Taking contemporary and historical practices in asemic poetry, experimental typography and automatic writing as inspiration, participants will use the Python programming language to prototype speculative writing technologies that challenge conventional reading practices and notions of sense-making.

Digital Scholarly Editing and Textual Criticism

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

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

October 4, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Hof van Liere, Prinsstraat 13
Antwerpen, 2000 Belgium
+ Google Map

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

October 4, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 7:30 pm
Hof van Liere, Prinsstraat 13
Antwerpen, 2000 Belgium
+ Google Map

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).
