The value of knowing that it happened seems to me a sufficient reason to relay it. --WM] Institute of Classical Studies Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU Friday June 14, 2019 at 16:30 in room G34 Martina Astrid Rodda & Barbara McGillivray (Alan Turing Institute) Exploring the Productivity of Homeric Formulae through Distributional Semantics The language of archaic Greek epic is overwhelmingly composed of formulae, i.e. repeated, rigid linguistic structures. Formulae do show some limited variation in their form; however, describing the boundaries and the mechanisms driving formulaic variation is notably difficult. Computational methods on large-scale digital collections can shed new light onto this problem. We present the first computational model which uses Distributional Semantics to assess how meaning variation drives formulaic productivity in ancient Greek epic. By comparing the distribution of meanings in archaic vs. later poetry, we can detect trends of development in formulaic usage through time and investigate their causes.

What are the potentialities and drawbacks of digital knowledge bases? What is the role of historic collections to contemporary indigenous peoples? How can indigenous knowledge be displayed on a par with scientific knowledge? This roundtable brings together European and Brazilian researchers and curators, including indigenous researchers, to discuss ways of advancing co-curatorship on Latin American collections in European archives and museums. Speakers include: Andrea Scholz (Ethnological Museum Berlin), Mariana Françozo (Leiden University), Nildo Fontes (FOIRN, Federation of the Indigenous Organizations of Rio Negro), Aloisio Cabalzar (ISA, Socio-environmental Institute), William Milliken (Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew), Mark Nesbitt (Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew), Viviane Kruel (Rio de Janeiro Botanic Garden), João Pacheco (National Museum, Rio de Janeiro), Laura Osorio Sunnucks (British Museum), Paul Basu (SOAS).
