         Subject: Digital documents and interpretation Conference

International conference and summer school
Albi, July 10-14th 2006

Organized within the framework of the Albi Languages and signification
conferences (CALS)

Digital documents and interpretation

Corpora in humanities and social sciences
Second announcement

Corpus analysis and building are redefining the practices, or even the
theories of the humanities. As these disciplines are more and more dealing
with digital documents, they have to reconsider their relation to the
empirical. The digitization of scientific texts also involves a reflexive
return to their very development. Do these new ways of accessing documents
generate new forms of knowledge construction?

The new national and international initiatives (e.g. the creation of the
Centre for digital scientific edition of the French CNRS, the TGE Adonis --
very large access equipment special for digital data and documents in the
humanities and social sciences) may be the opportunities to build a federal
project for the humanities and social sciences. Numerous communities have
for a long time gotten involved in thinking on digitization and
computer-assisted analysis: information sciences, but also history,
sociology, linguistics, archaeology, literary studies -- non-exhausting
listing of course...

Therefore, the aim of the conference is to reinforce links and to encourage
connections between teachers and researchers belonging to these disciplines
and the communities of corpus linguistics and digital documents. Without
much consideration towards ordinary objectivism, the conference will deal
with the philological and hermeneutical problems corpus-based works have to
handle, according to the tasks and the disciplines: for instance, genre and
discourse typologies, description of semantic forms and contents, theme
identification, concept characterization and evolution, form and content

On the practical level, the conference will tackle the questions risen by
corpus collecting, building, coding, tagging and processing and digital
edition. Software demonstrations are scheduled, as well as introductions to
issues specific to the concerned disciplines.
