IANLS Summer School: Digital Humanities and Neo-Latin Studies

Bonn, 14-17 April 2021

The Neo-Latin corpus is a vast and still widely uncharted ‘terra incognita’ whose actual dimensions have been emerging only in recent years with the advent of digitization. The digital turn has been a veritable game changer for Neo-Latin studies. Scholars no longer depend on physical access to large research libraries with collections of manuscripts and old printed books. Today, a daunting quantity of texts is often just a click away. Even though Neo-Latin studies have crucially benefitted from digitization, there has been little interaction between Neo-Latin studies and the Digital Humanities.

The IANLS Summer School: Digital Humanities and Neo-Latin Studies is intended to provide a platform for a more intense dialogue between these two disciplines. Senior scholars and early-stage researchers from both fields will be discussing research questions at the intersection between Neo-Latin Studies and Digital Humanities and exploring potential of interdisciplinary collaboration.

The summer school will be made up of talks and project presentations on the one hand and, on the other, ‘hands-on’ group sessions, in which actual research questions are discussed and put into practice. Each of the three full days will be devoted to a specific topic:

  1. Text mining, stylometry, text re-use
  2. Connecting people and places in Neo-Latin texts (Linked Open Data)
  3. Books and Libraries: Working with Bibliographic Metadata

The IANLS Summer School is generously suppored by the Volkswagen Foundation and can thus offer a number of travel bursaries.

This web page will be regularly updated with the latest information on the programme of the Summer School as well as changes that may become necessary due to COVID-19.

For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the organisers.
