Meeting Description:

"Text Comparison and Digital Creativity. An International Colloquium on the
Co-production of Presence and Meaning in Digital Text Scholarship".

On 30 and 31 October 2008 the Virtual Knowledge Studio, a programme of the Royal
Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Turgama Project of Leiden
University will organize an international colloquium, ''Text Comparison and
Digital Creativity. An International Colloquium on the Co-production of Presence
and Meaning in Digital Text Scholarship''. It will explore recent developments
in comparative text scholarship brought about by the use of ICT. On the one
hand, the spread of digital technology across philology, linguistics and
literary studies suggests that text scholarship itself is taking on a more
laboratory-like image. The ability to sort, quantify, re-produce and report text
through computation would seem to facilitate the exploration of text as another
type of quantitative data (akin to protein structures or geographic features of
the seabed). On the other hand, however, developing this potential also
highlights text analysis and text interpretation as two increasingly separated
sub-tasks in the study of texts. For more information and the programme see
