Subject: [DH] impresso online event - 19.05.2020 - Reading yesterday's news in the digital age Dear colleagues, You are invited to the first online edition of the C2DH Forum Z (https://www.c2dh.uni.lu/forum-z/reading-yesterdays-news-digital-age), dedicated to text mining of historical newspapers, in Luxembourg and Switzerland, organised by the impresso project. It will take place online, on the 19.05.2020, from 2:00 to 5:30 (CET). Rationale: In recent years, newspapers were mass-digitised and are now readily available for consultation online. Keyword search remains the most popular way to find interesting articles - but is there a better way? The Swiss-Luxembourgish project impresso - Media Monitoring of the Past - thinks there is and uses text mining tools to extract, process, link and visualise information from Luxembourgish and Swiss newspapers. This allows us for example to track the mentions of specific persons and places over time, to explore thematics such as sports or culture and to detect reused text passages across newspapers. To access and explore all this newly generated data we developed a new user interface and a range of didactic materials which help to foster a better understanding of the advantages and challenges of digitisation. Please find below some practical information on the event and how to participate. Looking forward to welcoming you online and best wishes, The impresso team In short, here is what to expect: - An overview of the impresso user interface (https://impresso-project.ch/app/?sq=) - Advanced user workshops based on impresso challenges (https://impresso-project.ch/assets/impresso-challenges-1.2.3.pdf) - An introduction to the Ranke.2 (https://ranke2.uni.lu/u/exploring-historical-newspapers/) project How to participate?
