Digital Scholarly Editions Beyond Text: Modelling Art, Film, and Everything in Between

Tes­sa Geng­nagel

Wis­senschaftliche Edi­tio­nen kon­tex­tu­al­isieren unser kul­turelles Erbe. Tra­di­tionell wer­den Meth­o­d­en aus der Edi­tion­swis­senschaft auf lit­er­arische Werke ange­wandt, um etwa deren Genese nachzu­vol­lziehen oder ihre Über­liefer­ungs­geschichte abzu­bilden. Wie ste­ht es um die Var­i­anz ander­er Arten von kul­turellem Erbe? Wie kön­nen wir diese sys­tem­a­tisch erschließen und wiedergeben? Vom Mit­te­lal­ter bis zur Neuzeit, vom Bild bis hin zu audio­vi­suellen Medi­en führt das Buch Diskurse ver­schieden­er Diszi­plinen zusam­men, um ein über­greifend­es konzep­tionelles Mod­ell zu entwick­eln. Dies geht mit ein­er grundle­gen­den Erörterung der The­o­rie der (dig­i­tal­en) Geis­teswis­senschaften ein­her.

Humanities and Big Data in Ibero-America: Theory, methodology and practical applications

Ana Gal­lego Cuiñas & Daniel Tor­res-Sali­nas (Hrsg.)

This vol­ume presents the first com­pre­hen­sive study on the rela­tion­ship between the Human Sci­ences and Big Data, with spe­cial empha­sis on the Ibero-Amer­i­can space. The vol­ume is divid­ed into three parts (the­o­ret­i­cal, method­olog­i­cal and prac­ti­cal) with an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary vision that inte­grates thought, cul­ture, lan­guage, lit­er­a­ture, the­o­ret­i­cal crit­i­cism, soci­ety or the use of new bib­lio­met­ric tech­niques.

Zoomland: Exploring Scale in Digital History and Humanities

Despite a vari­ety of the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal under­tak­ings, there is no coher­ent under­stand­ing of the con­cept of scale in dig­i­tal his­to­ry and human­i­ties, and its poten­tial is large­ly unex­plored. A clear­er pic­ture of the whole spec­trum is need­ed, from large to small, dis­tant to close, glob­al to local, gen­er­al to spe­cif­ic, macro to micro, and the in-between lev­els.

The book address­es these issues and sketch­es out the ter­ri­to­ry of Zoom­land, at scale. Four regions and six­teen chap­ters are con­cep­tu­al­ly and sym­bol­i­cal­ly depict­ed through three per­spec­tives: bird’s eyeover­head, and ground view. The vari­able-scale rep­re­sen­ta­tion allows for explorato­ry paths cov­er­ing areas such as: the­o­ret­i­cal and applica­tive reflec­tions on scale com­bin­ing a dig­i­tal dimen­sion with research in his­to­ry, media stud­ies, cul­tur­al her­itage, lit­er­a­ture, text analy­sis, and map mod­el­ling; cre­ative use of scale in new dig­i­tal forms of analy­sis, data organ­i­sa­tion, inter­faces, and argu­men­ta­tive or artis­tic expres­sions.

Zoom­land pro­vides a sys­tem­at­ic dis­cus­sion on the epis­te­mo­log­i­cal dimen­sions, hermeneu­tic meth­ods, empir­i­cal tools, and aes­thet­ic log­ic per­tain­ing to scale and its inno­v­a­tive pos­si­bil­i­ties resid­ing in human­i­ties-based approach­es and dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies.
