Research Seminar: Digitizing Danish Structuralism - Scientific Interest and Theoretical Relevance
Lorenzo Cigana (University of Copenhagen) and Henrik Jørgensen (Aarhus University) will present the research project “Infrastructuralism”.
13.03.2019 kl. 16.00 - 18.00
The project “Infrastructuralism” (Infrastrukturalisme), financed by Carlsberg Foundation, aims to build up an international interactive infrastructure for the study of structuralism, and more specifically an integrated repository of the digitalized correspondence and unpublished documents of the most important Danish structural linguists, such as Louis Hjelmslev, Viggo Brøndal, Eli Fisher Jørgensen, Jens Holt, Paul Diderichsen, Hans Christian Sørensen and Hans J. Uldall.
The first steps of the project, involving the constitution of the corpus and its proper transcription and digitalization, shall lead to the central phase, providing the framework and the theoretical discussion of the material, making it available to scientific community.
After having presented the corpus, along with the criteria of its constitution, we will focus on some theoretical issues concerning both the specificity of the material and its relevance from the more general perspective of Digital Humanities.
