Last call for participation (Deadline July 15) - DH Workshop FUBerlin, November 13-15, 2019 //
The deadline for applying to the DH Training Workshop: Digital
Methods for Linguistic Investigation is quickly approaching!
The workshop will take place November 13-15, 2019 at Freie
Universität Berlin, and is organized by Simona Olivieri, Humboldt Research
Fellow at Seminar für Semitistik und Arabistik, Freie Universität Berlin, with
the support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
The workshop will bring together 20 trainees together with experts to
share experiences, methods and techniques for the creation, management and use
of linguistic data.
Our aim is to present a sketch of different methodologies for the
digital treatment of languages and linguistic information, and to give an
overall view of the benefits of applying digital methods to investigate
humanities research questions.
Ideal trainees will be students, PhD students and postdocs from
linguistic disciplines interested in digital treatment of languages,
e-lexicography and creation of digital resources.
The training will focus on standards-compliant representations of texts
in digital form, and sessions will be organized in hands-on slots on data
modeling and managing.
Main instructors will be Laurent Romary (Directeur de Recherche,
Inria, Team ALMAnaCH, France), Toma Tasovac, (Director of the Belgrade
Center for Digital Humanities (BCDH)/Director of DARIAH-EU), and Giuliano
Lancioni (Roma Tre University).
The workshop will also feature public lectures to present Digital
Humanities projects on Arabic and Syriac. Keynote lectures will be given by Simona
Olivieri (FU Berlin) and Giuliano Lancioni (Roma Tre University), Karlheinz
Mörth (Director of the Austrian Center for Digital Humanities – Austrian
Academy of Sciences), and George Kiraz (Institute for Advanced Study,
Princeton / Beth Mardutho).
Applicants should submit their bio and a short proposal presenting their
background and interest in the field. The description of a concrete project
involving linguistic data that they would like to work on during the training
sessions will also be considered in the selection. All documents should be sent
as a single PDF-file attachment labelled as “Last Name_DHWorkshopFU.pdf” to Dr.
Simona Olivieri [hidden email] by July 15, 2019.
Attendees will be required to bring their laptops and sample data to the
training sessions, so to be able to work on the application of the
methodologies presented by the instructors.
