COST cover

13.-16. märtsil 2018 toimub Underi ja Tuglase Kirjanduskeskuses COST projekti (IS1310) „Res publica litteraria taasühendamine: digitaalne raamistik Euroopa intellektuaalajaloo uurimiseks“ koolitus.

Kirjanduskeskus osaleb Kristi Viidingu juhtimisel üleeuroopalise varauusaegse epistolaarpärandi uurimisvõrgustiku töös, mille eesmärk on luua uus alus varauusaja intellektuaalajaloo uurimiseks. Oxfordi ülikooli juhitava projekti tulemiks on kogu Euroopat hõlmav andmebaas varauusaegsetest ladinakeelsetest kirjadest ning võimalus ühendada andmeotsingu puhul ajalis-ruumilist või isikutest lähtuvat kriteeriumi kindlate teemade, nähtuste, märksõnade jms otsinguga. Lisaks kõigi relevantsete tekstinäidete kuvamisele esitab uus digitaalne keskkond ka üldistatud kaardi uuritava idee, nähtuse, uskumuse, keelendi jms levikust Euroopa eri piirkondade epistolaarpärandis.

Tallinnas toimuva koolituse eesmärgiks on õpetada osalejatele, kuidas koguda, ühtlustada ning valmistada digitaalseks publitseerimiseks ette varauusaegse epistolaaria metaandmeid üleeuroopalise andmebaasi Early Modern Letters Online (EMLO) ja Women’s Early Modern Letters Online (WEMLO) jaoks ning õppida kasutama EMLO ja WEMLO senist andmekogu.

Koolituse töökeeleks on inglise keel. Koolituse viivad läbi Miranda Lewis ja Charlotte Marique Oxfordist.

 

Training School in Tallinn, Estonia, 13–16 March 2018

COST-Action IS1310 ‘Reassembling the Republic of Letters’

Training School in Tallinn, Estonia, 13–16 March 2018

‘EMLO on the road’

   

The third Training School of the Action will take place in March 2018 in Tallinn, Estonia.

DATE

Tuesday, 13th – Friday, 16th March 2018

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Training School is to learn how to prepare metadata for publication in a union catalogue of early modern correspondence.

ATTENDEES

2 trainers and 12 trainees

  

Generously funded by COST Action IS 1310, the Under and Tuglas Literature Centre of the Estonian Academy of Sciences is hosting the third ‘Reassembling the Republic of Letters’ Digital Humanities Training School, in Tallinn.

Aims

The aim of the Training School is to teach participants to collate, standardize, and prepare for publication early modern correspondence metadata in a format that is compatible with a union catalogue in addition to meeting the needs and requirements of the contributing scholar’s own work and focus of research.

Format

The training sessions will be conducted by Miranda Lewis (Editor) and Charlotte Marique (Editorial Assistant) of the online database Early Modern Letters Online [EMLO], which is maintained by the Cultures of Knowledge project at the University of Oxford. Using tools developed specifically for metadata preparation, and in combination with standards that enable interoperability, participants will learn how to collate and structure epistolary metadata for publication in a union catalogue. Attendees will be shown how to take advantage of pre-existing, standardized early modern person and place metadata, together with relevant associated authority file references and links. The sessions will be tailored to help clarify specific issues and problems that arise in the course of work with epistolary metadata assembled from a wide range of sources and in pre-existing formats.

All participants are encouraged to bring their own metadata (whether pre-structured, partially structured, or unstructured), but in special cases sample metadata can be supplied for training purposes. Sessions will be conducted in English, and supporting documents and guides in English and  German will be available. Each participant will be required to bring a laptop for use during the sessions that will enable work with online tools and is capable of running Excel. Please note that tablets will not be suitable. Although a basic knowledge of Excel will be assumed, full training in all relevant spreadsheet work will be provided.
