Digital technologies applied to the study of poetry

The summer school offers an application of digital humanities to the study of poetry through practical learning of the latest technologies in this field.

Course dates: Madrid, 27th of June – 1st of July 2016

Location: Sáenz Torrecilla Conference Room, School of Economic Sciences, UNED

More information: http://extension.uned.es/actividad/idactividad/11781

OBJECTIVES

– Provide researchers with knowledge and understanding of the different digital humanities technologies and their application, specifically for textual analysis: TEI-XML, LOD, PLN, R.
– Reveal to participants the different technological and theoretical perspectives to address a single subject or philological concept as poetry, and provide them with simple tools they can use without extensive programming.
– Generate materials and tools which can be applied to the analysis of poetry and that researchers can reuse by themselves for their projects.

PARTICIPANTS‘ PROFILE

Researchers in philology and digital humanities, as well as people from other areas interested in the study of poetry. It is not essential to have previous experience in this area, although it is recommended to have some understanding of digital humanities and associated working methodologies.

METHODOLOGY

The course will be mainly practical and delivered in a workshop form, although some more theoretical sessions are included.

All of this information will be accompanied by presentations from international specialists on their findings and learning experience from using such tools and technologies.

Speakers

Elena González-Blanco (Department of Spanish Literature and Literary Theory, UNED) has degrees in Spanish Philology and Classical Philology from the Complutense University of Madrid with
First National Award for both, PhD in Spanish Literature from the same University with special award, and has developed her teaching and research career at various universities and centres of excellence in the United States (Harvard University), Europe (Queen Mary and Kings College in London, Bonn in Germany), and in Spain (CSIC and University of Alcalá de Henares). The focus of her research is on the literature of the middle ages, especially in its relationship to classical and medieval latin literature, as well as with romance literature from a comparative perspective. She is the author of numerous scientific papers related to these fields, among which the book “La cuaderna vía española en el marco panromáico” (2010). Elena González-Blanco participates in several national (HisMetCa) and international (Aliento) research projects. In recent years she has focused her research in the field of Digital Humanities, and leads a project to develop a digital metric Castilian repertoire, ReMetCa, which also participates in a European project for integration of poetic repertoires. He is a member of the Executive Committee of the European Association for Digital Humanities (HADS), the Steering Committee of GO:DH group of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), and President of Hispanic Digital Humanities. Her main research interests are related to poetry and medieval metrics, digital humanities and the origins of the romance literature.

María Gimena del Río Riande is a researcher for the Seminar on Editing and Textual Criticism (Secrit-CONICET) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She holds a PhD in Romance Philology and Masters in Literary Studies from the Complutense University of Madrid and also works as an expert in research and literary heritage recovery for The Autonomous University of Madrid. She did internships with Cátedra de Literatura Española and at SECRIT (CONICET) (2000-2002), and received a scholarship with the Lengua del Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (2005-2008). María Gimena del Río Riande did several research visits between 2006 and 2008 at the Ramón Piñeiro Center (Santiago de Compostela), and also worked as a contracted expert for various projects: research of Galician- Portuguese profane lyrics for the University of Santiago de Compostela (2010-2011), data base development BIESES- Bibliography of Spanish Writers for The National Distance Education University (2011-2012). She is a collaborator of the Digital Repertory on Medieval Spanish Metrics (ReMetCa, UNED) and deliveres graduation seminars for the Faculty of Arts – University of Buenos Aires. Her research is focused on the study of Galician- Portuguese profane lyrics and cancioneril lyrics, studying the issues around editing of poetic texts and their relationship to the metrics, paleography and codicology, as well as new forms of publishing by using digital humanities.

Other ways to get there

By car. Parking is free in the area, but not very easy to find…

From Moncloa:

Take Arco de la Victoria Ave. (head for Ciudad Universitaria). Turn left at the roundabout on Cardenal Cisneros Square. Continue through Juan de Herrera Ave. At the street’s end, take the Martín Fierro Ave. to the left. From the Séneca Ave. turn right into the second street (right-turn is not allowed on the first street), turn right but do not cross the bridge. At the traffic light, turn right into Senda del Rey St.

From Príncipe Pío:

At the end of Valladolid Ave., take the right lane. Senda del Rey St. should be opposite you, on the right side of the road. The access to get there is a 45º angle street that crosses Séneca Ave.

By M-30 from the north:

Coming from the North, exit on Valladolid Ave. This road runs parallel to Senda del Rey St. Once you leave behind the traffic light, the building of the School of Economic Sciences is on the left-hand side. To get there, take a 180º turn at the traffic light located behind the subway. After that, turn right leaving the main lane in order to cross to the Valladolid Ave. Finally, turn left.

By M-30 from the south:

Exit Valladolid Ave. Go perpendicularly to Senda del Rey St. to cross Valladolid Ave. and turn left on the second street (the first street is Valladolid Ave).

By plane. The Adolfo Suárez-Barajas Airport is 20 km away from the city and is connected to the capital by underground, train, bus and taxi:

Underground: Line 8 (Nuevos Ministerios-Aeropuerto)

Train: Line C1 (Príncipe Pío-Atocha-Recoletos-Aeropuerto T4)

Bus: Line 200 (Avenida de América Transport Hub, Avenida de América St. –Crossing to Agastia st.-, Canillejas –near the underground entrance-, Airport: T2 and T1-arrivals-).
