Angebotsmuster einmalig
Teilnahmebedingungen Open to young researchers with some or no prior experience of digital humanities.
The participants will need to bring:
- their own laptop with appropriate software installed: Excel, Oxygen (freely available as a 30-day trial licence), MAMP (freely available);
- any large amount of digitised texts (preferably materials they are keen to explore, as a mini-project will have to be completed using these)
Anbietende Organisationseinheit Fachbereich Französische Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaft
Module Doktorat Französische Literaturwissenschaft: Empfehlungen (Promotionsfach Französische Literaturwissenschaft)
Modul Literaturwissenschaftliche Praxis (Editionsphilologie, Literarisches Übersetzen, Literaturkritik) (Master Studiengang Literaturwissenschaft)
Modul Spécialisation en littérature française (Master Studienfach Französistik)
Lernziele Objectives:
By the end of this workshop, participants will:
- be able to make good use of some simple tools (n grams, word clouds)
- be able to make a more advanced use of some common tools (Excel)
- have a basic understanding of more complex programming techniques (TEI, SQL)
- be familiar with the potential and limits of various digital tools
- be able to make informed choices by assessing the usability and feasibility of a digital method
Inhalt Aims:
With the rapid development of computers and of the internet, today’s researchers are faced with a great variety of new tools to add to their methods – or not. Some of these can greatly boost one’s productivity and creativity, some will allow new approaches unthinkable with traditional methods, yet an irrelevant, ill-chosen or ill-used digital tool can prove a waste of one’s time and resources. In this context, being able to make informed decisions is crucial to a useful recourse to digital humanities. We shall focus on the following topics:
- simple digital tools to boost one’s research and/or present it;
- more complex and powerful technologies, with and without programming;
- how to chose appropriate tools for specific projects;
- when, why and how to change your work methods;
- how to get, use and show data;
- how to blend digital tools into your own methods (or: the machine will only ever be as clever as the orders it receives)

Bemerkungen Anne-Sophie Bories obtained her PhD in French Literature from University Paris 3 – Sorbonne Nouvelle, for a thesis focussing on poetic forms through the use of a large purpose-built database. She is now working on a FNS-funded postdoctoral project involving the markup of a large set of digitized texts, to collect numerical data, draw statistical analyses and combine those with traditional reading methods to inform text interpretation.
