Digital Classics III – Re-thinking Text Analysis
Concluding conference on the project Der digital turn in den Altertumswissenschaften: Wahrnehmung – Dokumentation – Reflexion
- levels and techniques for the analysis of large bodies of texts: morphosyntactical, style/register determining, textual-critical, content, hermeneutic
- criteria for defining and recognizing items (letters, words, phrases and reference methods)
- multimodal and multicodal capabilities of text - the relationship between text, e-text, and hypertext
- the methods and perspectives of semiotic and semantic analysis of text/graphic relationship.
The focus of the conference is an evaluation of the status quo in the digital analysis of Greek and Latin texts (literary and documents, papyri, manuscripts, inscriptions) – what sort of questions have been asked/answered/not yet answered/cannot be answered? Some speakers from non-classical fields have been invited, such experts in text analysis who can contribute to a broader overview of the issues.
