Subject: Workshop on Corpora in the Digital Humanities

 Full Title: Workshop on Corpora in the Digital Humanities 
Short Title: CDH 

Date: 19-Jan-2017 - 19-Jan-2017
Location: Bloomington, IN, USA 
Contact Person: Thierry Declerck
Meeting Email: declerck at dfki.de
Web Site: http://cl.indiana.edu/tlt15/cdh 

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 31-Oct-2016 

Meeting Description:

Past editions of the International Workshops on Treebanks and Linguistic
Theories (TLT) have included co-located events exploring the use of linguistic
annotations in Digital Humanities. This time, the co-located workshop will
also focus on the creation, annotation and use of corpora in Digital
Humanities. The workshop will focus on bringing together an audience from the
humanities, digital humanities, linguistics, and computational linguistics to
explore venues of collaboration and learning from each other. The workshop
will feature 1) a rapid-fire public presentation of digital interventions that
showcase collaborations and DH needs and 2) presentations from all areas
within digital humanities where corpora do or can play a role.

The focus of this workshop lies in the description of ideas, approaches,
resources, and tools that are related to text corpora, linguistic annotation
in any form, and Digital Humanities. The workshop is intended to foster
collaborations and to cross-fertilize knowledge and approaches across
disciplines.
