Last week, Francesca presented two seminars on our A Question of Style project at the Digital Scholarship Seminar at the National University of Ireland Galway (15 February) and the UCD Humanities Institute in University College Dublin (17 February).
The seminars introduced A Question of Style and discussed progress so far as well as the longer-term goals of the project. The audiences, which included staff, postgraduate students, librarians and information technology specialists, showed particular interest in our work to develop tools for semi-automated OCR correction and TEI encoding. Several questions were also asked about the nature of “operationalisation” and the relationship between quantification and the study of literature, followed in both venues by lively discussions.
The NUI Galway seminar was broadcast on Facebook Live and is available to watch at this link: https://www.facebook.com/nuigdss/videos/1384851671586857/
