Lecture Series: Margherita Parigini

The thesis « The Rule and the Doubt » is dedicated to the Italian author Italo Calvino, more precisely to the study of a narrative mechanism that plays a central role in his work: doubt used as the propulsion engine for writing. The aim of the thesis is to analyze this phenomenon in all its forms and to identify its various consequences in the narrative articulation of the text. The research is also supposed to develop a reflection on Calvino’s critical texts, exploring the hypothesis that the dubitative text is born at the crossroads of fiction and essay. In order to realize the research, an attempt was made to use different methods of analysis in a complementary manner: a more traditional approach derived to literary criticism, combined with a perspective linked to the DH dimension (e.g. Data Visualization).

In recent years, Digital Humanities has had a big impact on the field of literary studies as a whole, but its presence in children’s literature studies has been limited so far. This two-day conference seeks to unite scholars using digital tools for the analysis of children’s literature, culture and media to reflect on the state of the art, exchange methodological expertise, discuss avenues and issues for further research and build networks.

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.

The Collective Editing of the Talmud

The Babylonian Talmud, known simply as the Bavli, is the collaborative effort of generations of sages. It is also the foundational legal and ethical document of rabbinic Judaism. Rather than being authored by any individual authors, it instead represents the collective work of the Jewish scholarly community in Babylonia over five centuries. From its inception, in the beginning of the third century, until the end of the eighth century it was transmitted orally, and it continuously evolved and developed collectively throughout the period. This presentation will analyze the unique process of its formation and early transmission and how it came to represent the first oral wiki editing process.

Relire la littérature des années 30 grâce aux humanités numériques: le cas des hebdomadaires d’information et de reportage.

Les années 1930 voient l’émergence des hebdomadaires illustrés par la photographie ou le montage photographique, comme Détective, Vu, ou Regards. Ces organes de presse contribuent à transformer le regard que les contemporains jettent sur le monde. Mais on ne peut toutefois les analyser du seul point de vue de l’actualité journalistique. Ces revues sont aussi animées par des écrivains et elles sont liées aux grandes maisons d’édition. L’exposé tentera donc de lier ce phénomène éditorial avec l’histoire de la littérature française, dans la perspective d’une approche transmédiatique.

Lecture Series: Julie Blake

February 10, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Antwerpen, Antwerpen 2000 Belgium

Popular taste and public understanding of literature are shaped by many different life experiences and influences, including what happens in schooling. Dr. Julie Blake's work is part of a body of research that seeks to understand the history of English literary education through its material artefacts and traces of classroom practice (eg Michael 1987, Rubin 2007 and Robson 2015). This history connects in interesting interdisciplinary ways with the history of literature, the reception history of different authors, the history of mass education, Britain’s colonial past and its postcolonial present. In her talk, Blake will share some of the practicalities and possibilities of building a digital “difference engine” for this research, and will discuss how this kind of approach might be developed and applied in other areas of literary history.

Neural Machine Translation for Text and Speech

In his talk, Mattia Di Gangi will introduce Neural machine translation (NMT). This is an exciting research area that is experiencing fast growth and attracting more and more groups from academia and industry, and some of its fundamental problems are still unsolved. Neural machine translation (NMT) reached such impressive results in the last few years that some industrial players, imprudently, claimed to have reached human parity.
