Digital Text Editing and Knowledge Transfer
14 May 2015 | London | Website
One-day workshop at the University of London School of Advanced Study (SAS) on sharing digital text editing training and teaching methods. The workshop is organized and endorsed by NeDiMAH, DARIAH-RS, Erasmus +, and the DiXiT Network.
Over the past decades, those active in developing a range of digital scholarly editing practices have built up a large body of knowledge about digital tools and methods that enable the development, presentation, and analysis of digital texts. This has resulted in a wide variety of methods for teaching and training of text editing. However, those who have to adapt quickly to working in a digital scholarly editing environment are often not aware of these different training methods. As a consequence, they might be overlooking available resources, or even re-inventing the wheel.
The event will bring together teachers of digital editing with a group of people who have faced the need to learn more about this area, especially those working in commercial publishing as well as research projects. A number of key practitioners will be invited to discuss the core resources available for text editing, and how expertise can be shared more widely. Specifically, we are looking to see how the experience of those in academia who teach and research text editing can contribute to the development of a core set of training materials for those new to the field, and how we can have better knowledge transfer around digital text editing.
The underlying aim of the workshop is therefore to scope what is already available in terms of training materials, and to develop a methodology to assess different kinds of teaching material. This critical overview will assist the community in the further development of teaching material for text editing. As an output of the workshop, a basic and open curriculum will be developed and published as an online resource by NeDIMAH.
The workshop will be in English and is open to anyone interested in the field of text editing; some previous experience with text editing and/or teaching is required.
A limited number of travel bursaries are available to postgraduates and early career researchers in countries that are part of the NeDiMAH network. For more information see www.NeDiMAH.eu. If you wish to apply for a bursary please do so by April 15.

Typographie und Edition (DiXiT Summer School)
1 – 6 August 2016 | Mainz | Website
Typographie und Buchgestaltung sind untrennbare und sinntragende Begleiter gedruckter Texte. Im Zuge des »material turn« finden sie steigende Aufmerksamkeit, auch jenseits der Disziplingrenzen der Buch- und Druckgeschichte. Bestandteil der geisteswissenschaftlichen Curricula sind sie dennoch nicht. Da Kenntnisse von Typographie und Typographiegeschichte gerade für die editorische Praxis relevant sind, richtet sich die Summer School besonders an Philologen und andere mit Editionen befasste Wissenschaftler, die in ihrer Arbeit schrift- und layoutgeschichtliche Aspekte berücksichtigen wollen. Es werden Kenntnisse der Technik- und Stilgeschichte der Typographie vom 15. bis 20. Jahrhundert vermittelt und Möglichkeiten diskutiert, in welcher Art typographische Aspekte bei der Erstellung (elektronischer) Editionen berücksichtigt werden können.
Die großzügig durch das DiXiT-Netzwerk geförderte Summer School wird dieses Jahr von der Mainzer Buchwissenschaft ausgerichtet. Die Arbeit in der Wiege des Buchdrucks mit Beweglichen Lettern wird uns neben einem Rundgang auf den Spuren des Frühdrucks v.a. die Arbeit an Originalen des Gutenberg-Museums ermöglichen. Zur Eröffnung der Woche wird der renommierte Typograph Ralf de Jong im Rahmen eines öffentlichen Abendvortrags das Thema »Typographie und Edition« aus der Praxis eines Buchgestalter beleuchten.

Topic Modeling ist eine quantitative Methode der Textanalyse, die zum Ziel hat, einen Zugriff auf (im weitesten Sinne) inhaltliche Muster in umfangreichen Textsammlungen anzubieten. Um Topic Modeling mit eigenen Textdaten durchzuführen, sind drei wesentliche Schritte notwendig: Erstens das Vorbereiten der Texte und Metadaten für die Analyse; zweitens der eigentliche Vorgang des Topic Modelings, d.h. der Extraktion von Struktur in den Daten; und drittens die Aufbereitung und Visualisierung des Modells in einer Form, die eine Interpretation der Ergebnisse erlaubt. Ziel des Workshops “Topic Modeling” ist es, die TeilnehmerInnen in die Lage zu versetzen, den vollständigen Arbeitsablauf für das Topic Modeling am eigenen Rechner und mit eigenen Textdaten durchzuführen.

The educational and social impact of Digital Scholarly Editions
24 January 2017 | Rome | Website
Digilab and DiXiT network are organizing a workshop on the educational application and social impact of digital scholarly editions. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, January 24, 2016, in conjunction with the AIUCD 2017 Conference and the 3rd EADH Day (aiucd2017.aiucd.it). The format of the one-day workshop consists of a set of six/eight papers (20 minutes) and large room for discussion.
The goal of the workshop is to share experiences and foster theoretical reflections about the impact of digital scholarly editing products and methods, primarily in the educational context, but also in the more general social context. The use of digital technologies in teaching prompts a reflection on the added value of using these technologies and raises some controversial questions at the same time: shall we consider digital humanities as a ‘special topic’, separate from non-digital subjects, such as national literature or ancient languages, etc.? Is digital scholarly editing an invaluable pedagogical tool for learning to encode texts by means of markup? Does it enable students to make an original research contribution while still learning? Is the ‘learning by doing’ approach recommended? Is it just a matter of skin? Can a digital tutorial, if properly designed, engage a wider public well beyond the limits of the scholarly target for which it was originally developed?
At the same time, digital research outcomes and methods should not be considered as separate from the more general cultural and social context. In this sense, digital scholarly editions can play a relevant role in the public engagement of humanities scholarship.
These topics can be articulated in the following issues:
- the digital editions in teaching philology and textual criticism
- digital editions in disciplinary context
- digital editions and their social impact
- digital editions and academic publishing
- digital editions and public humanities
The organizers solicit proposals in the form of an abstract of max 500 words. Abstracts can be submitted via the AIUCD 2017 ConfTool, available at http://http://www.conftool.net/aiucd2017/. The official language of the Workshop is English.
Submitters must create an account on the system and then use the specific type of submission “DIXIT Workshop”. Notification of acceptance will be communicated by December 15, 2016.
