Organisers: Project Humanist Computer Interaction under Scrutiny

The project Humanist Interaction under Scrutiny aims at analysing and validating the innovation potential of digital methods and tools in the Humanities.
The aim of the workshop is to (1) introduce its participants to a modular setting of digital methods and tools, (2) to let them put these applications to the test when addressing authentic research questions, and (3) to discuss and evaluate their user experience in combination with the wider potential of digital methods in the Humanities. All presentations, exercises and discussions will relate to the digital edition and the analysis of the Variae, a collection of letters compiled by the late antique author and politician Cassiodorus (6th century CE).

The workshop’s participants will be provided with insights into the following areas of the Digital Humanities:
- Annotation

- Contextualisation and analysis of big data
- Network analysis and geo-referencing
- Corpus-based linguistic analysis
- Interpretation
- Digital publishing
