How to write a new and attractive History of Belgium 2.0 or 3.0?

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

My new research project on the writing a new history of Belgium in a digital world has 3 components: A theoretical part on the content and structure of a new history based on the analysis and comparison of existing public histories of Belgium, Wallonia, Flanders and Ostbelgien. The methodology is based on both qualitative and quantitative discourse analysis. An empirical part aiming at investigating the current representations of Belgium (basic narratives and factual knowledge) as well as the expectations in terms of themes, values and media for a 200(0) year history of Belgium among young Flemish, Walloon, Brussels and German-speaking Belgians. A practical part focused on developing adequate communication tools on Belgian history in the digital age.   Wednesday, 7 July 2022 14.00 - 15.00 C²DH Open Space and Webex If you wish to participate, please send an e-mail to vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu to receive the link - or simply join us in person.     6 July 2022 Public history Digital history & historiography Digital hermeneutics Digital methods Methodology Public History Research seminars Published Hide image in content detail

Bearing a Bag-of-Tales: An Open Corpus of Annotated Folktales for Reproducible Research

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 19 minutes

Motifs in folktales and myths have been identified and articulated by scholars, and the computational identification and discovery of such motifs is an area of ongoing research. Achieving this goal means meeting scientific requirements (that methods be comparable and replicable) and requirements for collaboration (that multi-disciplinary teams can reliably access data). To support those requirements, access to consistent reference datasets is needed. Unfortunately, these datasets are not openly available in a format that supports their use in data science. Here we report work in progress toward this goal, having converted the Ashliman Folktexts collection into a public dataset of annotated tale texts. The data can be accessed at doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6575263. Published on 2022-06-24 11:47:11

The Charles Translator for Ukraine: A development by LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ

Source: CLARIN ERIC | Reading time: 1 minutes

The Charles Translator for Ukraine: A development by LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ The automatic translator for Czech and Ukrainian, recently developed at the Institute of Formal and Applied Linguistics (ÚFAL) of Charles University, is now also available as a mobile application for Android. Users can download the Charles Translator for Ukraine app free of charge from the Google Play store.  The translator was developed with support of the LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ, and runs on the LINDAT technical infrastructure. It was developed in record time after the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent wave of refugees into the Czech Republic, and it has been freely available for non-commercial purposes since mid-March at https://translator.cuni.cz. The web service has logged almost a quarter of a million hits in April, which, together with the demand from owners of smart mobile devices running Android, has triggered the development of a mobile application.  The application allows translation between Czech and Ukrainian in both audio and text form, and phonetic transcriptions between Latin and Cyrillic are available for translations.  The release of the mobile application is a significant event in the historical context of research and development of machine translation at the ÚFAL and also at LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ. The importance of this moment was enhanced by the introduction of the new name of the Czech-Ukrainian translation system Charles Translator for Ukraine, thereby subscribing to the brand name Charles University. With the addition of translation pairs of languages, the name should be narrowed down to Charles Translator in the future, allowing the researchers from ÚFAL to combine this new translator, developed in connection with the war in Ukraine, with the existing translation service available in LINDAT for other languages.

Under development – a Zotero translator for Libraries Tasmania!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I’ve created a Zotero translator for the Libraries Tasmania catalogue. Using it, you can save metadata and digital resources to your own research database with a single click. Libraries Tasmania actually has three catalogues rolled into one – the main library catalogue, the archives catalogue, and the names index. The translator works across all three. Features include: Select and save items from a page of search results. Save individual items across the full range of formats. (By default, individual records in the catalogue open in a modal overlay. For Zotero to recognise the item you need to click on the Permalink button and open the record on a separate page.) Automatically download digital images and PDFs attached to records. This works when the record points to a particular page – it won’t download multiple images from a single link. However, if a record contains multiple links to digitised pages (such as the Convict records in the Names Index), you’ll get them all! Fields in the Archives catalogue and Name Index that don’t map to Zotero properties are saved as key/value pairs in Zotero’s ‘Extra’ field I’ve submitted the translator for inclusion in the official repository, but you’re welcome to take it for a test run in the meantime. Just follow these steps: Find out where your Zotero data folder is. From Zotero go to Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Files and Folders and click on Show Data Directory. Open the translator file here. Then right click and choose Save as, navigate to your Zotero data folder, and save it in the ‘translators’ folder. Restart Zotero and your browser. Head to the Libraries Tasmania catalogue and try it! Let me know if you strike any problems. #dhhacks

From women's gallery to queer feminist knowledge production – Gender discourses in Museums of Industry and Technology in historical perspective

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

When women like two-time Nobel laureate Marie Skłodowska Curie appear in exhibitions on the history of technology and science, this might be a good sign for the visibility of women in STEM. However, it goes too far to take Curie’s presence as a proof for a gender sensitive museum practice. With initiatives like Queering Museums, museums start(ed) to discuss broader visions of gender diversity and queer(y)ing museum practices. But when and under what circumstances do museums begin to discuss what kind of gender knowledge they produce? How do museum makers reflect on gender gaps and biases in collections, exhibitions, and education, steering towards a more gender-informed museum making? Applying a Science and Technology Studies (STS) framework on selected case studies, this talk will discuss how museums put gender theory to practice and highlight the spatio-temporal situatedness of museum knowledge production about gender in historical perspective.   Wednesday, 29 June 2022 14.00 - 15.00 C²DH Open Space and Webex If you wish to participate, please send an e-mail to vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu to receive the link - or simply join us in person. 29 June 2022 Public history Cultural policies Gender studies Museology Research seminars Published Hide image in content detail

LoGaRT and RISE: Two multilingual tools from the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science

Source: OpenMethods | Reading time: 5 minutes

Introduction: This post introduces two tools developed by the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, LoGaRT and RISE with a focus on Asia and Eurasia. [...]The concept of LoGaRT - treating local gazetteers as “databases” by themselves - is an innovative and pertinent way to articulate the essence of the platform: providing opportunities for multi-level analysis from the close reading of the sources (using, for example, the carousel mode) to the large-scale, “bird’s eye view” of the materials across geographical and temporal boundaries. Local gazetteers are predominantly textual sources – this characteristic of the collection is reflected in the capabilities of LoGaRT as well, since some of its key capabilities include data search (using Chinese characters), collection and analysis, as well as tagging and dataset comparison. That said, LoGaRT also offers integrated visualization tools and supports the expansion of the collection and tagging features to the images used in a number of gazetteers. The opportunity to smoothly intertwine these visual and textual collections with Chinese historical maps (see CHMap) is an added, and much welcome, advantage of the tool, which helps to develop sophisticated and multifaceted analyses.

Undisciplined Histories of Maintenance

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

When Lee Vinsel and I started The Maintainers and wrote “The Innovation Delusion,” we brought our historical sensibilities to a project that we hoped would reach broader and more general audiences. In the process, we set aside some of the conventions of archive-based history and embraced approaches from different academic and non-academic fields. In this talk I’ll describe some of our choices, and how it led to some unexpected scholarly insights—and moments of joy.     Andrew Russell is a co-founder of The Maintainers with Lee Vinsel, in 2016. As a co-director, he works with Lee, Jessica, and Lauren on research projects, outreach, and a variety of organizational work that goes into maintaining the Maintainers. His background is in the history of technology, where he writes and teaches about subjects such as Internet history, technical standards, and technology in American life. He really enjoys seeing connections and patterns between maintenance in our personal lives and maintenance on broader scales, such as in organizations or state or national governments.   Monday, 4 July 2022 14.00 - 15.00 Hybrid event: C²DH Open Space and Webex If you want to participate, just come to the 4th floor of the MSH or contact vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu for the Webex link. 4 July 2022 Public history Repairing technology – fixing society?

Repairing Technology – Fixing Society?

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

Failures and breakdowns constitute an important element in the fundamental relationship between users and technology, and maintenance and repair are fundamental practices in everyday life. Stephen Graham and Nigel Thrift (2007) highlighted that “repair and maintenance are not incidental activities. In many ways, they are the engine room of modern economies and societies”. However, we still know very little about the actual developments of repair practices in the past and today. In his essay “Rethinking repair”, Steven Jackson (2014) therefore called for what he coined “broken world thinking”. He argues that we should take “erosion, breakdown, and decay, rather than novelty, growth, and progress, as our starting points” when we want to study consumption and use. Broken world thinking is an …

Evolving topic, evolving methods : studying the dispossession of the Jews in Luxembourg during World War II

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

Soon after its creation in 2018 the Fondation Luxembourgeoise de la Mémoire de la Shoah asked the newly opened C²DH to conduct a doctoral research project on the “spoliation of Jewish property during World War II in Luxembourg”. The goal and methods of this project were slightly different from those of the Special Commission for the Study of the Spoliation of Jewish Property in Luxembourg during the war 1940-1945, which gave its final report to the Luxemburgish Government in 2009. The “road-book” of the project, in the form of a series of questions, was set by the convention that framed it, signed in 2019. But as the project unfolded, this frame had to evolve. Which sources were actually available? Which research question did we want to address? Which methods did we want to use? This session of the Research Seminar will present how the project evolved since it started in January 2020 and which – sometimes very practical – challenges still lie ahead for its remaining 18 months.   Wednesday, 15 June 2022 14.00 - 15.00 C²DH Open Space and Webex If you wish to participate, please send an e-mail to vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu to receive the link - or simply join us in person. 15 June 2022 Contemporary history of Luxembourg History of the spoliation of Jewish property in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (1930s - 1950s) Holocaust Jewish history WW2 Research seminars Published Hide image in content detail

"Barvalo" ouvrira ses portes au Musée des Civilisations de l'Europe et de la Méditerranée le 10 mai 2023 à Marseille. L'exposition traitera de l'histoire des différents groupes romani (Roms, Gitans, Sinte, Manouches et Gens du Voyage) en Europe. Une histoire fortement teintée d'antitsiganisme. Conçue de manière collaborative par un groupe de 19 personnes d'origine romani et non romani, elle a permis au musée de mener en parallèle une réflexion sur ses collections en permettant de procéder à des acquisitions suggérées par le groupe ainsi qu'à une réindexation de ses fonds anciens. En ne cédant pas à la tentation de la simplification et de l'homogénéisation pour parler des "Tsiganités", le musée s'est ouvert également à la critique des musées d'ethnologie et de société en confiant à l'artist…

L’invention d’Esch-sur-Alzette. Josef Stübben et les architectes de la ville.

La première exposition organisée au Bridderhaus, ancien hôpital de la ville (1873), renové et transformé en résidence d’artistes, est consacrée à un urbaniste qui a relevé un grand défi il y a presque cent ans : réinventer Esch-sur-Alzette en contrecarrant l’emprise croissante de l’industrie sur la capitale du Bassin minier luxembourgeois par un plan vert. Le plan d’extension d’Esch-sur-Alzette réalisé en 1924-1925 par l’urbaniste allemand Josef Stübben (1845-1936) parvient à contrebalancer les grands espaces industriels qui encerclent la ville, dont trois usines sidérurgiques, par des parcs, des allées d’arbres, des promenades, des constructions aérées, de belles places publiques pour créer une ville inspirée des cités-jardins anglaises.

Teaching the Text Encoding Initiative: Context, Community and Collaboration

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 32 minutes

In common with many technical aspects of digital humanities, the TEI has a reputation for being difficult to teach and difficult to learn, with potential practitioners put off by the large and (at first sight) intimidating set of guidelines, the seemingly complex hierarchical structure and the profusion of angle brackets. One-to-one or small group teaching in the context of a specific project is often the preferred method, where the short but steep learning curve required to engage with the TEI can be addressed in a way which is relevant to the aims and experience of the learner. This, however, is not a particularly efficient way of teaching. In this article, the authors discuss their experience of teaching (and learning) the TEI, and how lessons learned in contexts relating to specific projects might feed into the teaching of TEI in a more general setting – the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School being the prime example.

The geographical scope ranges from the industrial regions of Western Europe in Portugal, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Great Britain to the far north of Norway and Central and Eastern Europe (former GDR and Poland). The comparative long-term perspective will shed light on the different conditions of regional development and the cycles of boom and bust in the European context. The focus will be on four main topics: the housing situation of workers and their families, the decline of mining regions, the socio-political resistance of industrial workers, and the journalistic and visual representat…

Tracing Changes in Shape of Historical Artefacts Across Time Using 3D Scans: A New Computational Approach

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 21 minutes

This paper pioneers a new computational approach for the study of changes in shape of objects across time. Previously, such a study was undertaken by scholars using a purely visual approach and relied on images of objects or in-person observations. This paper’s approach is based on 3D scans of historical artefacts. Sample points are extracted from these 3D scans and the distance between analogous points across different objects is computed using an approximation of the Wasserstein metric, namely the Sinkhorn distance. In this paper, the approach is demonstrated on a small set of ancient Greek vessels of the Krater, Pelike, and Kylix types, as the variation in their shapes across time is well known to archaeologists. Results offer, for the first time, a way of quantifying differences between objects. Benefits of this approach lie in its ability to quantify change, to study complex 3D material, and to analyse large datasets of objects, opening the possibility of constructing new large-scale studies of object shape across time and geographical regions. These have a range of applications in art history, archaeology, digital humanities, museology and extended reality studies. Published on 2022-05-20 12:09:58

Convert your Trove newspaper searches to an API query with just one click!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I’m thinking about the Trove Researcher Platform discussions & ways of integrating Trove with other apps and platforms (like the GLAM Workbench). As a simple demo I modifed my Trove Proxy app to convert a newspaper search url from the Trove web interface into an API query (using the trove-query-parser package). The proxy app then redirects you to the Trove API Console so you can see the results of the API query without needing a key. To make it easy to use, I created a bookmarklet that encodes your current url and feeds it to the proxy. To use it just: Drag this link to your bookmarks toolbar: Open Trove API Console. Run a search in Trove’s newspapers. Click on the bookmarklet. This little hack provides a bit of ‘glue’ to help researchers think their about search results as data, and explore other possibilities for download and analysis. #dhhacks

Vernissage of the virtual exhibition 'Minett Stories'

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

The virtual exhibition Minett Stories deals with the history and identity of Minett, the industrial region in southern Luxembourg, in 22 chapters. For a century (approx. 1870-1970) the Minett was shaped by iron ore mining and the iron and steel industry. Rapid economic and population growth, urbanisation and labor migration have had a major impact on the history of the region, as have economic crises, environmental pollution and precarious housing and living conditions. Remixing Industrial Pasts in the Digital Age is a project of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH ), launched in fall 2019 and funded by the European Capital of Culture Esch2022 asbl. The "Minett Stories" virtual exhibition was developed in collaboration between the Remix team, Milan-based design studio Calibro and Bergamo-based software company Inmagik. The Remix team spent two and a half years researching and sourcing the underlying sources, designing the exhibition, and writing all the storyboards, scripts, story texts, and captions for the 22 exhibition chapters. The focus was on various forms of transmedia storytelling, including several interactive video documentaries, graphic novels, interactive maps, interactive podcasts, and two radio plays.

Place-Making Narrative Data: Management Issues in the Context of Open Science and Data Curation in France

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 21 minutes

The Places dataset is still in-process and being added to on a regular basis. It is comprised of complete data management documentation and ethics documentation in English and French, concept notes in English and French, and participant data files that include .csv metadata sheets, .wav audio recordings of interviews, .jpeg photographs of the place of the interview and open ELAN .eaf transcriptions. The participant interview data relies on a narrative inquiry methodology and is collected in one-on-one interviews with researchers on the theme of anglophone expatriation and adaptation to French socio-physical space. These interviews are informal and interactive, aiming for a sharing of experience, since the researchers are, themselves, anglophone expatriates. The aim of this accompanying article is to provide information on the dataset through a concomitant reflection on the research context in France and the affordances of the increasingly powerful TGIR Huma-Num digital humanities infrastructure, as well as the tensions that are prevalent in the Franco-European space between the demands of Open Science and the restrictions of the European General Data Protection Regulations. These affordances and this tension have framed the process that has resulted in the Places data architecture. Published on 2022-05-06 11:58:37

We are looking for participants to join us in a day of making, research and reflection with the physical materials that underpin AI systems. Those that are conventionally considered to ‘make’ AI through the design of AI systems are largely divorced from AI’s materiality and the craft of making AI. We hope to push participants beyond the theoretical knowing of AI materiality to tactile knowing through a practice-based approach to ‘making’ AI. Reorienting the focus of AI to materials and the supply chain as sites of creative intervention could leverage the potential of sensory, tactile experiences to spur re-imaginations of AI technologies and infrastructures. https://aiyesterday.com/ACM-C-C-Workshop   Project Team: Margaret McGrath, Nancy Salem, Laurel Boxall Funders: TORCH-Minderoo Fund in AI Governance

Juvenile delinquency, social unrest and national anxiety: French debates and controversies over rock’n’roll in the 1960s and 1970s

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

Based on a collection of local and national archival sources, police reports, and press articles, this talk will explore how rock’n’roll and pop music were received in France in the 1960s and the 1970s. Although some ‘threats,’ such as violence and loose moral at rock’n’roll concerts, were present in other countries as well, this talk shows that other so-called hazards should be read in the light of the French context. This was marked by the shadow of the dark years of the Vichy regime, the end of the Algerian war, students’ protests in May 1968, and the lasting influence of the left-wing revolutionary spirit. Florence Tamagne is associate professor in contemporary history at the University of Lille. She has notably published Histoire de l’homosexualité en Europe, Berlin, Londres, Paris (1919-1939) (Seuil, 2000), Mauvais Genre ? Une histoire des représentations de l’homosexualité (La Martinière, 2001) and Le crime du Palace. Enquête sur l’une des plus grandes enquêtes criminelles des années 1930 (Payot, 2017, Prix Augustin Thierry).  She is the curator of the exhibition “Homosexuals and Lesbians in Nazi Europe” (Mémorial de la Shoah, Paris, May 2021-May 2022). She is currently finishing a book on "Rock music, youth cultures and politics in France, Britain and Germany (1950s-1980s) " and has published several articles on the subject.   Tuesday, 17 May 2022 17.00 - 18.30 C²DH Open Space & Online Maison des Sciences humaines, 4th floor Free public hybrid event.

Rawad Wehbe

Academic Title:  Ph.D. candidate, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Pennsylvania Rawad Wehbe studies Arabic poetry, poetics, and literary theory. His dissertation examines the mukhaḍramūn—a generation of poets who lived between the pre-Islamic and Islamic era—focusing on the network of emotions surrounding the poetic experience of existing in the threshold of transition, known as khaḍramah. Drawing from theories of affect and emotion, he departs from a historical study of the mukhaḍramūn to develop a theory of khaḍramah that examines how this experience, vis-a-vis biography and anecdote, informs transformations in poetic forms indigenous to the Arabic language. Using optical character recognition and text analysis software, Rawad is compiling a digital archive of poetry collections central to his research to facilitate analysis of linguistic, stylistic, and formal patterns to explore new methods of close and distant reading. Rawad earned two MA degrees in Arabic from the University of Texas at Austin (2017) and the University of California, Los Angeles (2013). He was awarded a fellowship for the Center of Arabic Study Abroad (2014) in Amman, Jordan. Rawad received a Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship Dissertation Abroad Request (2021), Janet Lee Stevens Award in Arabic and Islamic Studies (2020) and was named a Mellon Graduate Fellow (2019). Also, he was nominated for the Texas Foreign Language Teaching Excellence Award (2017). His translations of Arabic poetry and literature appear in publications by Michigan Quarterly Review, Paris Review (forthcoming), Two Lines Press, DoubleSpeak, Words Without Borders, and Inventory.

Getting started with OpenRefine – Digital Humanities 201

Source: OpenMethods | Reading time: 4 minutes

Introduction: Open Refine, the freely accessible successor to Google Refine, is an ideal tool for cleaning up data series and thus obtaining more sustainable results. Entries can be searched in alphabetical order or sorted by frequency, so that typing errors or slightly different variants can be easily found and adjusted. For example, with the help of the software, I discovered two such discrepancies in my Augustinian Correspondence Database, which I am now able to correct with one click in the programme. I was shown that I had noted "As a reference to Jerome's letter it's not counted" five times and "As a reference to Jerome's letter, it's not counted" three times. Consequently, if I searched the database for this expression, I would not see all the results. A second discrepancy was between the entry "continuing reference (marked by Nam)" and the entry "continuing reference (marked by nam)". Thanks to Open Refine, such errors can be completely avoided in the future. The tutorial by Miriam Posner is a useful introduction to come in touch with the software. However, the first step of the installation is already out of date. While version 3.1 was still the latest when the tutorial was published, it is now version 3.5.2. Under Windows, you can now distinguish between a version that requires Java and a version with embedded OpenJDK Java, which I found very pleasing. If needed, there are links at the end of the tutorial to other introductions that go into more depth.

Networking for Historical Justice: The Application of Graph Database Management Systems to Network Analysis Projects and the Case Study of the Reparation Movement for Japanese Colonial and Wartime Atrocities

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 24 minutes

Using the reparation movement for Japanese colonial and wartime atrocities as a case study, this paper explores the applicability of graph database management systems to network analysis research and teaching in the field of digital humanities. Since the late 1980s, Asian victims of Japanese colonial and wartime atrocities (such as the infamous “comfort women” system) began to sue the Japanese government and corporations with the help of local and Japanese lawyers and activists. This paper uses the plethora of publicly available court materials produced by the movement to study social networks in this transnational historical justice movement and illustrate how graph database management systems can upgrade traditional network analysis methodologies in digital humanities. By inputting the data about lawsuits and lawyers in the movement into graph database applications like Neo4j and GraphXR, the paper demonstrates the advantages of managing network data in graph database structure in terms of scalability, modifiability, intuitive visibility, query efficiency, and analysis potential over relational database structure, which is the mainstream in network analysis research.

Tracking Trove changes over time

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

I’ve been doing a bit of cleaning up, trying to make some old datasets more easily available. In particular I’ve been pulling together harvests of the number of newspaper articles in Trove by year and state. My first harvests date all the way back to 2011, before there was even a Trove API. Unfortunately, I didn’t run the harvests as often as I should’ve and there are some big gaps. Nonetheless, if you’re interested in how Trove’s newspaper corpus has grown and changed over time, you might find them useful. They’re available in this repository and also in Zenodo. This chart shows how the number of newspaper articles per year in Trove has changed from 2011 to 2022. Note the rapid growth between 2011 and 2015. To try and make sure that there’s a more consistent record from now on, I’ve also created a new Git Scraper – a GitHub repository that automatically harvests and saves data at weekly intervals. As well as the number of articles by year and state, it also harvests the number of articles by newspaper and category. As mentioned, these four datasets are updated weekly. If you want to get all the changes over time, you can retrieve earlier versions from the repository’s commit history. All the datasets are CC-0 licensed and validated with Frictionless. There’s also a notebook in the GLAM Workbench that explores this sort of data.

Liewen am Minett revisited

The “Liewen am Minett” project came to life by an initiative of the Minister of Culture Robert Krieps in 1986. In the photo book’s foreword he stated that the heart of Luxembourg’s industry, “the cradle of its prosperity and the material support of national independence” – the Minett – has been unfairly overlooked, and its “new type of man” – the Minettsdäpp – largely unseen. “It is therefore a kind of injustice,” Krieps continued, “that we want to redress by doing justice to a world which, over the past ten years, has experienced deep anguish and new transformations. We present a snapshot of a part of our country whose rich facets are unknown.” The photo book, curated by Jean Back, exhibited photos of 16 amateur and professional photographers. “Liewen am Minett” was arguably the first soc…

We are adopting the theme of “the diversity of DH.” We define diversity broadly, to recognize unique global and local accents of DH, to raise visibility of multilingual and non-western DH, and to showcase the multitude of interdisciplinary topics, methods and approaches that connect our communities. We look forward to the variety of events that interpret th…

Annotation Guidelines For narrative levels, time features, and subjective narration styles in fiction (SANTA 2).

Source: OpenMethods | Reading time: 5 minutes

Introduction: If you are looking for solutions to translate narratological concepts to annotation guidelines to tag or mark-up your texts for both qualitative and quantitative analysis, then Edward Kearns’s paper “Annotation Guidelines for narrative levels, time features, and subjective narration styles in fiction” is for you! The tag set is designed to be used in XML, but they can be flexibly adopted to other working environments too, including for instance CATMA. The use of the tags is illustrated on a corpus of modernist fiction. The guidelines have been published in a special issue of The Journal of Cultural Analytics (vol. 6, issue 4) entirely devoted to the illustration of the Systematic Analysis of Narrative levels Through Annotation (SANTA) project, serving as the broader intellectual context to the guidelines. All articles in the special issue are open peer reviewed , open access, and are available in both PDF and XML formats. [Click ‘Read more’ for the full post!]

Making connections: new ways of accessing cultural heritage online

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

This presentation will consider the limits of search for exploring digital cultural heritage and discuss some of the alternative modes of discovery that become possible through data linking and visualisation. It will draw on the experience of two projects: the Heritage Connector and the Congruence Engine. Both are concerned with unlocking the full potential of museum catalogues, which are largely unstructured, variable in consistency and overwhelmingly composed of what might be described as ‘thin’ records. The Heritage Connector project sought to build links at scale between the collections of the UK’s Science Museum Group, the Victoria and Albert Museum and Wikidata, and the Congruence Engine initiative expands this work to include data from more than 20 cultural heritage and university partners. New forms of visualisation and access are at the heart of these interdisciplinary collaborations. The presentation will conclude by considering how useful these methods might be for exploring vast born-digital collections, such as web and social media archives.     Jane Winters is Chair of Digital Humanities and Pro-Dean for Libraries at the School of Advanced Study, University of London. Her research interests include digital history, the archived web, big data for humanities research, new forms of scholarly communication, and open access publishing.

IN#SANE. The contemporary history of an eroding difference

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

The history of psychiatry is a history of the difference between normality and madness. However, this difference is becoming increasingly fragile. On the one hand, with the unlocking of psychiatric institutions and the social integration of inmates, madness is becoming everyday normality; on the other hand, behavioural and reaction patterns such as rush, stress or attention deficit are pathologised. Thus, established historiographies, based on the traditional dichotomy, loose purchase on this phenomenon. This is the ground assumption of our project: it takes the erosion of the difference between normal and pathological as the central development in dealing with psychic alterity. This phenomenon lacks adequate historical consideration. Our aim is to historicize the interdependent relationship between the history of psychiatry and historiography, and thus to turn it into an instrument of analysis of the perceived erosion.   Wednesday, 20 April 2022 14.00 - 15.00 Hybrid event: C²DH Open Space and online If you want to participate online, please send an e-mail to vanessa.napolitano@uni.lu to receive the link or participate in person by simply coming to the C²DH. https://www.c2dh.uni.lu/sites/default/files/styles/full_width/public/logo_research_seminars_content_list.png?itok=r2xDOs_L Research seminar with Benoît Majerus and Samuel Dal Zilio. 20 April 2022 Contemporary history of Europe Normal#Verrückt.

Accessibility, Discoverability, and Functionality: An Audit of and Recommendations for Digital Language Archives

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 36 minutes

While digital archiving has long been standard for linguistics, archives themselves are heterogeneous (Aznar & Seifart 2020), and archived linguistic material is important for researchers and communities, particularly for language reclamation (cf. Baldwin & Olds 2007; Whalen et al. 2016; Hinton 2003, 2018; Kung et al. 2020). The format and usability of scholarly archival collections is shaped by the functions of the management practices at the stewarding institution, making an appreciation of the range of access services provided by such institutions relevant to the evaluation of individual collections. Here we report on a review of 41 digital language archives. Three factors are examined: 1) accessibility, including metadata and site navigation; 2) discoverability, or searchability and internal navigation; and 3) functionality, the overall ease of data retrieval and use. We recognize that the decisions made by both stewards and depositors can greatly impact the accessibility of archived materials; to that end, we present recommendations for how archives might increase the utility of their holdings for their users. We emphasize that our intention is not to dissuade linguists from using archives because of these issues, and we recognize the tremendous amount of work that goes into the upkeep of digital infrastructure, often with very limited institutional support. Implementing such recommendations at an institutional level can establish a fairer peer-review process of archival collections. By delineating precisely what standards fall under the archive management level and what procedures individual depositors are responsible for, the roles of “archivist” and “depositor” become clearer.

Parallel text datasets are a valuable for educational purposes, machine translation, and cross-language information retrieval, but few are domain-oriented. We have created a Chinese–English parallel dataset in the domain of finance technology, using the Financial Times website, from which we grabbed 60,473 news items from between 2007 and 2021. This dataset is a bilingual Chinese–English parallel dataset of news in the domain of finance. It is open access in its original state without transformation, and has been made not for machine translation as has been used, but for intelligent mining, in which we conducted many experiments using up-to-date text mining techniques: clustering (topic modeling, community detection, k-means), topic prediction (naive Bayes, SVM, LSTM, Bert), and pattern discovery (dictionary based, time series). We present the usage of these techniques as a framework for other studies, not only as an application but with an interpretation. Published on 2022-03-18 09:48:18

A Social Network of the Prosopography of the Neo-Assyrian Empire

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 11 minutes

The dataset is a social network of over 17,000 individuals who lived during the so-called Neo-Assyrian period of Mesopotamian history, primarily in the eighth and seventh centuries BCE. The undirected network of individuals connected by co-occurrences in cuneiform documents was semi-automatically extracted from the Prosopography of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. In addition to two weighted versions of the one-mode co-occurrence network, the dataset also contains a two-mode person-text network and rich metadata for each individual. For the first time, the dataset allows large-scale computational analysis of social structures in the Assyrian Empire. The data is primarily stored as plain text and CSV files, inviting scholars to further expand and enrich it. The scripts and files used for creating and standardizing the data are also available in the Zenodo repository. Published on 2022-03-17 13:07:23

HATHI 1M: Introducing a Million Page Historical Prose Dataset in English from the Hathi Trust

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 18 minutes

We present a new dataset built on prior work consisting of 1,671,370 randomly sampled pages of English-language prose roughly divided between modes of fictional and non-fictional writing and published between the years 1800 and 2000. In addition to focusing on the “page’’ as the basic bibliographic unit, our work employs a single predictive model for the historical period under consideration in contrast to prior work. Besides publication metadata, we also provide an enriched feature set of 107 features including part-of-speech tags, sentiment scores, word supersenses and more. Our data is designed to give researchers in the digital humanities large yet portable random samples of historical writing across two foundational modes of English prose writing. We present initial insights into transformations of linguistic patterns across this historical period using our enriched features as possible pointers to future work.

Des acteurs oubliés de la colonisation: Les légionnaires luxembourgeois au sein de l’empire colonial français

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

Dès le milieu du XIXe siècle, de jeunes Luxembourgeois s’engagent dans la Légion étrangère mise en place en 1831. Leurs motivations sont multiples : espoir de connaître une vie meilleure, tentative de fuir, pour une raison ou une autre, le Grand-Duché ou encore soif de découvertes et d’aventures. À travers leur engagement ils participant derechef à la conquête coloniale française. C’est ce dont témoigne une circulaire concernant les individus qui prennent service militaire dans la Légion étrangère, publiée en 1847 dans le Mémorial législatif et administratif du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg. Rappelons que la fascination pour cette « épopée » parcourt l’Europe, alimentée par la presse et de nombreux « ouvrages exotiques », mettant aussi bien en exergue des terres inconnues que la conquête colon…

ADHO Statement on the invasion of Ukraine

Source: News | Reading time: 1 minutes

The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) deplores the February 2022 invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Army under orders from President Putin, and the ongoing violence and suffering it is causing, especially among the Ukrainian people. We join colleagues worldwide in condemning the invasion and asserting solidarity with the Ukrainian nation and its people. Armed conflict is not a solution and our thoughts are with those who are affected by the horrific impact of war. We call on the international academia in general, and to our digital humanities community in particular, to extend any possible help to Ukrainian scholars and students in these difficult times. May this also serve as a reminder of the terribly disruptive consequences of armed conflict and injustice that are a too frequent reality for many around the world. We invite all to read the statements, published by our Constituent Organizations in response to the invasion, that reflect our diversity and also the solidarity of our global DH community.

Adventures in FOI – HASS RDC Scoping Studies

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

So my FOI request to release the scoping studies that informed investments in the current round of ARDC-managed HASS research infrastructure development was partially successful. As I’ve previously noted, reports from the ARDC and Academy of Humanities are now publicly available. There was a third document identified as relevant to my request that was finally released yesterday, but it isn’t what I was expecting. It’s a report of consultation relating to a discussion paper by Dandalo Partners, rather than the actual discussion paper itself! Clearly I spoke the wrong magic words, and should have asked for ‘discussion papers’ as well as ‘scoping studies’. FOI can be a bit of a fishing expedition. I’m considering whether I want to start the whole FOI process again by asking for the final version of the discussion paper, but in the meantime, I’ve put the currently-available documents in a Dropbox folder. Enjoy! Thanks again to those who helped me cover the FOI costs!

The GLAM Workbench wants you!

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

Over the past few months I’ve been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work on the GLAM Workbench – automating, standardising, and documenting processes for developing and managing repositories. These sort of things ease the maintenance burden on me and help make the GLAM Workbench sustainable, even as it continues to grow. But these changes are also aimed at making it easier for you to contribute to the GLAM Workbench! Perhaps you’re part of a GLAM organisation that wants to help researchers explore its collection data – why not create your own section of the GLAM Workbench? It would be a great opportunity for staff to develop their own digital skills and learn about the possibilities of Jupyter notebooks. I’ve developed a repository template and some detailed documentation to get you started. The repository template includes everything you need to create and test notebooks, as well as built-in integration with Binder, Docker, Reclaim Cloud, and Zenodo. And, of course, I’ll be around to help you through the process. Or perhaps you’re a researcher who wants to share some code you’ve developed that extends or improves an existing GLAM Workbench repository. Yes please! Or maybe you’re a GLAM Workbench user who has something to add to one of the lists of resources; or you’ve noticed a problem with some of the documentation that you’d like to fix. All contributions welcome! The Get involved! page includes links to all this information, as well as some other possibilities such as becoming a sponsor, or sharing news. And to recognise those who make a contribution to the code or documentation there’s also a brand new contributors page. I’m looking forward to exploring how we can build the GLAM Workbench together. #dhhacks

DH Italian-Canadian Foodways project

Source: Digital Humanities Network | Reading time: 2 minutes

This project considers the place of food production and consumption in Italian-Canadian culture, examining cuisine as one of the defining traits of cultural identity for Italian immigrants that settled within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) over the past one hundred years. It begins with an overview of the history of Italian immigration to Toronto and key neighbourhoods built and transformed by this diaspora, including the establishment of landmark food businesses that persist to this day. Using a sociocultural, historical lens, the project further highlights the impact and contributions of the Italian community on Toronto’s food industry, tracing the growth and enduring legacies of restaurants in the face of cultural demographic shifts towards the turn of the century. This project further outlines the importance of recognizing and preserving the culinary traditions of diasporas, particularly in times of crises that impact local businesses and threaten to erase the cultural footprint of immigrant communities.

Omeka S Tools – new Python package

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

Over the last couple of years I've been fiddling with bits of Python code to work with the Omeka S REST API. The Omeka S API is powerful, but the documentation is patchy, and doing basic things like uploading images can seem quite confusing. My code was an attempt to simplify common tasks, like creating new items. In case it's of use to others, I've now shared my code as a Python package. So you can just `pip install omeka-s-tools` to get started. The code helps you: download lists of resources search and filter lists of items create new items create new items based on a resource template update and delete resources add media to items add map markers to items (assuming the Mapping module is installed) upload templates exported from one Omeka instance to a new instance There's quite detailed documentation available, including an example of adding a newspaper article from Trove to Omeka. If you want to see the code in action, there's also a notebook in the Trove newspapers section of the GLAM Workbench that uploads newspaper articles (including images and OCRd text) to Omeka from a variety of sources, including Trove searches, Trove lists, and Zotero libraries. create an issue in the GitHub repository. #dhhacks

Thinking through questions of materiality, memory and collecting, the lecture will consider especially those collections held in British military museums arising through colonial wars.

The By the People (BTP) datasets comprise text of selected collections of the Library of Congress (LOC) created by volunteers in the By the People crowdsourced transcription program, which invites public transcription of historical documents. All transcriptions are created and reviewed by volunteers in a consensus-based model in which two or more volunteers must agree on a transcription for it to be considered complete. Resulting transcriptions are added to the digital collections alongside the images to enable search and accessibility of the collections. Additionally, completed transcription “campaigns” are published as freely downloadable datasets of .CSV files containing all campaign transcriptions, as well as minimal metadata. The datasets can support a multitude of purposes including computational research in fields such as history, linguistics, economics, and political science. Published on 2022-02-04 13:04:56

Ambivalences of Europeanization: Going beyond teleological thinking about Europe

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 1 minutes

The project “Ambivalences of Europeanization” aims to reflect on the concept of Europeanization. While ambivalences form a crucial aspect of modernization research, there has been no systematic reflection on the ambivalences of Europeanization. On the basis of numerous case studies, the authors argue that crises, conflicts and contradictory phenomena cannot be regarded as undesirable side effects of an otherwise "well-intentioned" and successful Europeanization. Rather, those ambivalences that are evident in colonialism or in the European history of violence are inscribed in the modern concept of Europeanization and accounts for its polyvalence.  Timm Beichelt is Professor of European Studies at European University Viadrina Frankfurt/Oder and Director of the Viadrina Institute for European Studies; Clara Maddalena Frysztacka is research associate at European University Viadrina Frankfurt/Oder.   Tuesday, 22 February 2022 at 5:00PM CET via Webex For the Webex link please contact Adelina Stefan at oana.stefan@uni.lu.   https://www.c2dh.uni.lu/sites/default/files/styles/full_width/public/cover_ade_1_copy.jpg?itok=z3Eooaj7 'Europe Seminar' with Timm Beichelt and Clara Maddalena Frysztacka (European University Viadrina Frankfurt/Oder). 22 February 2022 Contemporary history of Europe Nation-building Conferences Published Hide image in content detail

Zotero support in Australian GLAMs

Source: Tim Sherratt | Reading time: 1 minutes

Last year I started compiling information about the level of Zotero integration provided by Australian GLAM organisations though their online collections. The basic test is, can Zotero capture useful, structured information about an item from the collection interface. The results are not great. Zotero extracts information from a web site using a variety of 'translators'. Some of these translators look for generic information embedded in a web page, such as and tags. Others are written to work with widely-used software systems, such as library catalogues. For bespoke systems, custom translators can be created to extract the necessary data. But sometimes, the data just isn't available in a form Zotero can access. custom translator for it many years ago. There's also a custom translator for Trove's digitised newspapers, but the translator for other parts of Trove was broken by the site's upgrade in 2020. Dublin Core metadata in web pages, and Australian government agencies were expected to make use of AGLS to aid web discovery. But it seems these are no longer priorities. The good news is we can fix this, either by supporting and encouraging GLAM organisations to embed useful metadata, or by creating custom translators. There's been a lot of talk about HASS research infrastructure over the last six months, and it seems to me that some integration and cooperation in this area would make a big difference to the way researchers work with GLAM collections. online form available if you'd like to contribute new results to the spreadsheet, or update existing details.

The China Biographical Database (CBDB) is the largest prosopographical database for the study of Chinese history. We use regular expressions and neural network models to systematically harvest data from primary and secondary sources and employ an entity-relationship model to organize our data. As a relational database with both online and offline versions, CBDB provides freely accessible, structured data for macroscopic, quantitative studies of premodern China. The data in CBDB is continuously disambiguated and readily formatted for statistical, social network, and spatial analyses, and also has value for tagging named entities in historical texts and contextualizing other data collections.

Part of the problem is that once I've updated the packages, I have to run all the notebooks to make sure I haven't inadvertently broken something -- and this takes time. And in those cases where the notebooks need an API key to run, I have to copy and paste the key in at the appropriate spots, then remember to delete them afterwords. They're little niggles, but they add up, particularly as the GLAM Workbench itself expands. I've been looking around at Jupyter notebook automated testing options for a while.

A Dataset for Toponym Resolution in Nineteenth-Century English Newspapers

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 11 minutes

We present a new dataset for the task of toponym resolution in digitized historical newspapers in English. It consists of 343 annotated articles from newspapers based in four different locations in England (Manchester, Ashton-under-Lyne, Poole and Dorchester), published between 1780 and 1870. The articles have been manually annotated with mentions of places, which are linked—whenever possible—to their corresponding entry on Wikipedia. The dataset consists of 3,364 annotated toponyms, of which 2,784 have been provided with a link to Wikipedia. The dataset is published in the British Library shared research repository, and is especially of interest to researchers working on improving semantic access to historical newspaper content.

From Static to Interactive Maps: Drawing Diachronic Maps of (Latin) Modality with Pygmalion

Source: Journal of Open Humanities Data Latest Articles | Reading time: 25 minutes

In this paper, we present the diachronic maps of a selection of 75 Latin modal markers designed through the tool Pygmalion. Both the maps and Pygmalion were conceived in the framework of the WoPoss project, which aims at analysing the diachronic pathways of modality in Latin. While the description of the tool and its functionalities is beyond the scope of this paper, we focus here on the description of our diachronic modal maps. Using visualisations to represent semantic shifts is a well-known practice in some linguistic fields such as typology and lexicography, and they have already been applied to modality. Though the situation is rapidly evolving, typological semantic maps as well as lexicographic maps are still for the most part static and usually not-interactive visualisations. Our modal maps stand out not only for their interactivity, but also for the richness of the information conveyed: chronology, etymology, semantics, syntax, first attestation and diachronic relationships between the meanings. After presenting our conceptual framework for modality, we illustrate the process of conceptualisation and development of our diachronic maps of modality. More specifically, we explain how we gathered and organised the data in order to transpose it into a visual representation. We then showcase the map of possum as an example of our results. Subsequently, we discuss the results with respect to previous literature concerning both visualisation of modal evolution from a general point of view and the investigation of modality in Latin. Finally, we outline possible applications within and beyond the WoPoss project. Published on 2022-01-12 11:37:41

On Not Knowing: Reasoning with Uncertainty in Digital Literary Studies

Source: C2DH | Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History | Reading time: 2 minutes

The increasing ubiquity of machine learning algorithms in our everyday lives has prompted much critical debate over their ethical and epistemological implications. Much of this debate has focused on the kinds of social biases they encode and the need for humans to correct or intervene in their automated decisions. Humanistic disciplines naturally have much to offer these debates, with their long tradition of attending to the partiality of any claims to generalizable truth. But this critical stance can at times hinder recognition of machine learning as itself mired in a long history of debate over how to reason about error, bias, and the uncertainty of all knowledge. What might humanistic inquiry gain not by thinking around these ideas, as if they were problems belonging to the machine or a…

The Corpus of the Epigraphy of the Italian Peninsula in the 1st Millennium BCE (CEIPoM) is a linguistic database which covers the Oscan, Umbrian, Old Sabellic, Messapic and Venetic languages, as well as epigraphic Latin up to 100 BCE. The database is hosted on GitHub and Zenodo, and provides manually annotated linguistic information on all levels of language structure, ranging from phonology to syntax. In providing a high-resolution digital dataset for language varieties that have until now been largely restricted to printed reference works, this corpus opens up new avenues for research into this unique ancient linguistic area.
