From 28 – 30 October 2014, the Department for Foreign Languages and Literature at the University of Verona hosts an introductory Seminar on Digital Humanities, aimed at PhD students and researchers in humanities disciplines. This seminar is fully endorsed by DiXiT and features, among others, Domenico Fiormonte and Tiziana Mancinelli. DiXiT ESR 12 Fellow Federico Caria will also participate. For more information, see the flyer.
In the future, DiXiT will endorse and collaborate on events that are not part of the core DiXiT programme. For this reason, we have created a new section on the website to provide information about these additional events. The first additions are an introductory training event about Digital Humanities in Verona, end of October (see separate news post), and a workshop in Sassari in December. More information on the latter event will follow.
The Institute for Documentology and Scholarly Editing (IDE), associated partner of the DiXiT network, is happy to announce the launch of a new review journal, RIDE. The IDE aims to make digital editions and resources more visible and to provide a forum in which expert peers can evaluate and discuss the efforts of digital editors in order to improve current practices and advance future developments. It will do so by asking its reviewers to pay attention not only to the traditional virtues and vices of any edition, but also to the evolving methodology and its technical implications.
