Subject: DH Event this Friday: seminar by Iian Neill on 'The Codex' and workshop on digital tools for Renaissance texts The University of Sydney - Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group and the Medieval and Early Modern Centre Dear all, I am writing to remind you of the events on digital tools for Renaissance texts scheduled for this coming Friday, the 18th of October 2019 and supported by the Medieval and Early Modern Centre at the University of Sydney. This two-part event, including a seminar led by Iian Neil from 10am until 11am followed by a workshop, explores the alignment of a number of digital tools, including READ, Codex and Intelligent Archive, and their strategic relevance within the framework of a NSW alliance concerning the field of digital humanities. Expert participants include Hugh Craig (The University of Newcastle), Ian McCrabb (The University of Sydney), Stephanie Majcher (Australian National University), Adrian Vickers (The University of Sydney), Iian Neill (Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur | Mainz) and Francesco Borghesi (The University of Sydney). Iian Neil will demonstrate the integration of text and data achieved by Codex; Ian McCrabb, Stephanie Majcher and Hugh Craig will remark on its alignment with tools such as READ and Intelligent Archive; and Francesco Borghesi will remark on its integration within the Pico della Mirandola Virtual Library project. More detailed information about Iian Neil's seminar can be found under my signature and here: https://sydney.edu.au/arts/our-research/centres-institutes-and-groups/sydney- digital-humanities-research-group.html. Please note that while the seminar is open to all those who are interested (and no RSVP is needed), the workshop is by invitation only. The scholars interested in the workshop, should contact me directly at email@example.com . All the best, Francesco Borghesi ----- Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group and the Medieval and Early Modern Centre Seminar The Codex: Building a Graph of History Iian Neill, Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur | Mainz The Codex is a web-based digital humanities project that attempts to achieve the deep integration of text and data. Standoff properties are used to mediate between the plain text stream and entities modelled in a Neo4j graph database. It uses a dynamic standoff property text editor to enable real-time changes to text and annotations without invalidating standoff property indexes. Annotations map back to text at the character level and can be overlapped without constraint. The ability to overlap (and comment) annotations offers a system for exploring the multidimensional affordances of text-as-a-graph in a practical editing environment. This talk proposes to look at the way Codex has been used to model such corpora as the 1913 Carden English translation of Michelangelo's letters and the 1927 Rosen Jervis translation of Luca Landucci's "A Florentine Diary"". Iian Neill is a graduate of the University of Queensland in Art History and English Literature, and a Visiting Researcher at the Digital Academy of the University of Mainz. One of the founders of the Art Renewal Center (ARC), an American fine arts education non-profit, he also is the technical lead at the same institution. He developed Codex out of an interest in the graph database modelling of historical events. Since the addition of a custom standoff property text editor, the focus of Codex has become towards a generalised text-as-a-graph solution.
