Digital Classics III: Re-thinking Text Analysis - 12-13/05/2017, Heidelberg (Germany)


Digital text analysis is increasing in prominence throughout the humanities. The ever growing availability of data has opened scholars to the possibilities of quantitative text analysis as a method of learning about the form and content of text. Greek and Latin text analysis in particular poses new questions through the development of text analysis tools and technologies.

The 2-day conference is planned to discuss best practices in methods, methodology, tools and technology and hermeneutical reflections on text analysis.

The focus of the conference is an evaluation of the status quo in the digital analysis of Greek and Latin texts (literary and documents, papyri, manuscripts, inscriptions) – what sort of questions have been asked/answered/not yet answered/cannot be answered? Some speakers from non-classical fields have been invited, such experts in text analysis who can contribute to a broader overview of the issues.
