Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Meeting Description: Digital Humanities Stream
Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study
103rd Annual Meeting
May 2-4, 2013, San Francisco Hilton Hotel, Financial District

Though humanists and social scientists have used computation in their work for many decades, the amount of both digitized data and degree of algorithmic sophistication makes the present moment a crucial one for bringing together expertise and exchange of ideas in this area. Since our field studies nations with high levels of technical development and strong investments in large-scale digital cultural heritage projects, we face a special challenge in ensuring our methodologies are sophisticated enough to tackle a coming flood of Nordic ‘big data.’
