The project “Texte Messen – Messungen Intepretieren” ( is part of the WIN-Kolleg “Messen und Verstehen der Welt durch die Wissenschaft”, organized and supported by the Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften ( /forschung/

The project includes 2 workshops (2015 and 2016) and a final congress (2017). The first workshop will be held from the 23rd to the 25th of July 2015. It focuses on the relationship between digital humanities and classics.

The workshop has 3 major aims:

  • To foster interaction between classical scholars without digital-humanities experience and scholars with experience in the creation and use of texts in digital media and of digital tools.
  • To present diverse types of digital editions and tools and discuss their advantages and disadvantages; to debate new possibilities these offer in comparison to similar non-digital products; to understand the methodological premises and concepts on which these editions and tools are based; to appreciate their limitations; and to evaluate the consequences that the use of such digital products may have for research methods.
  • To examine projects that do not involve digital tools or editions from the point of view of digital humanities. An attempt will therefore be made to increase awareness of the peculiarities that characterise already existing genres of scholarship and of the methodologies used in classics, thus contributing to the emergence of new or modified genres.
We intend to achieve these aims through: the creation of spaces for communication and co-operation between scholars with and without experience in digital humanities; the presentation of digital editions and various digital tools (databases, linguistic annotation, visualisation tools, text-mining tools), as well as non-digital projects of different genres, examining their production processes, and the methodological problems they pose; a reflection upon general issues posed by the use of "data", "metadata" and "linked data”.
