Historical Text Reuse Data Workshop

Historical Text Reuse Data Workshop
July 12-13, 2017

P 702 (7. Etage) Paulinum, Hauptgebäude
Universität Leipzig
Augustusplatz 10-11 – 04109 Leipzig

Within the framework of the BMBF funded Global Philology Planning Project, the Historical Text Reuse Data workshop will focus on automated and manual methods for detecting and annotating text reuse of historical languages in a digital environment. The goal is to present and explore tools and techniques for automatic detection of text reuse, and also data models for annotating text reuse elements deriving from both automatic and manual work. Considering the nature of text reuse detection and annotation, the workshop will also focus on textual and translation alignment techniques for comparing reuses in different texts and different languages. The discussion will be also devoted to named entities recognition in order to explore techniques for identifying named entities pertaining to text reuse (e.g., author names and work titles) and therefore creating catalogs of reused authors and works.
