Meeting Description:

The ''Corpus-based Research in the Humanities'' workshop (CRH) continues the series of workshops previously named ''Annotation of Corpora for Research in the Humanities'' (ACRH). Three editions of ACRH were held, respectively in 2011 (Heidelberg, Germany), 2012 (Lisbon, Portugal) and 2013 (Sofia, Bulgaria).

CRH wants to be a meeting place for both scholars from Computational Linguistics and from the Humanities (especially, Digital Humanities). Although the two research areas share a number of common topics, there is still limited collaboration between the two communities. Since the empirical evidence provided by corpora plays a central role in both disciplines, we believe that a workshop focussed on the different uses of (different kinds of) corpus data in the Humanities might represent a valid opportunity to make the two communities meet, discuss and compare their interests, methods and aims.

Call for Papers:


The topics to be addressed in the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Specific issues related to the annotation of corpora for research in the Humanities (annotation schemes and principles)
- Corpora as a basis for research in the Humanities
- Diachronic, historical and literary corpora
- Use of corpora for stylometrics and authorship attribution
- Philological issues, like different readings, textual variants, apparatus, non-standard orthography and spelling variation
- Adaptation of NLP tools for older language varieties
- Integration of corpora for the Humanities into language resources infrastructures
- Tools for building and accessing corpora for the Humanities
- Examples of fruitful collaboration between Computational Linguistics and Humanities in building and exploiting corpora
- Theoretical aspects of the use of empirical evidence provided by corpora in the Humanities

Invited Speaker:

Reinhard Foertsch (Universität zu Köln, Germany)
