Digital Humanities Workshop in Split
24th and 25th of April 2017
On 24th and 25th of April 2017, the LBI co-organized a digital humanities workshop in Split, Croatia, in cooperation with the Department of Classical Philology of the University of Zagreb, the DARIAH-HR initiative and the Research Institute Marulianum in Split. A follow-up to our first workshop on Neo-Latin and Digital Humanities, which took place in 2016 in Vienna, the workshop allowed ca. 30 participants from Austria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia and the USA to see, discuss and try out digital tools which could either facilitate their research in the field of Neo-Latin, or even open up completely new research possibilities.
Matthias Schlögl (Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities at the Austrian Academy of Sciences) presented APIS, a system for semantic annotation and entity linking in a VRE, Christopher Blackwell (Department of Classics, Furman University) gave an introduction to CTS in a virtual machine, Günter Mühlberger (Transkribus, University of Innsbruck) showed us the potential of the Transkribus software, and Thomas Koentges (Digital Humanities, University of Leipzig) talked about topical modelling of Greek and Latin.
