    Scientists tackling the illegal trade in elephant ivory got more than they bargained for when they found woolly mammoth DNA in trinkets on sale in Cambodia, they revealed Friday. The frame specimen of a mammoth is displayed at an exhibition in Yokohama, suburban Tokyo on July 12, 2013; the giant mammals have been extinct for around 10,000 years and are not covered by international agreements on endangered species [Credit: Kazuhiro...

    Excavation work led by the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute team has unearthed a large urban villa dating back to the early New Kingdom, about 1500-1450 B.C.E. The findings at the site of Tell Edfu in southern Egypt include a large hall containing a rare and well-preserved example of a domestic shrine dedicated to family ancestors. View (from the east) of the main columned hall of the early 18th Dynasty urban villa...

    Anne Gangloff, Pouvoir impérial et vertus philosophiques : l'évolution de la figure du bon prince sous le Haut-Empire, Leyde-Boston, 2018.

    Éditeur : Brill
    Collection : Impact of Empire
    526 pages
    ISBN : 978-90-04-37937-4
    56 €

    Ce livre propose une analyse précise de la pensée politique romaine, à travers la manière dont la figure du bon prince est décrite depuis les Julio-Claudiens jusqu'à la fin du IIIe siècle. Sont examinés l'évolution et la communication des vertus du prince, ainsi que les rapports entre celui-ci et les intellectuels de son entourage. La naissance d'une véritable tradition de pensée politique romaine, qui a exercé plus ou moins d'influence sur les empereurs eux-mêmes, est ainsi mise en lumière.

    Rev. Dr. Charles Allen leads the wonderful progressive Christian campus ministry at Butler University known as Grace Unlimited. He has shared some of his own experience of being persuaded to adopt young-earth creationism, and then again to abandon it, in a manner that mirrors my own experience to a large extent. Here is an excerpt […]

    The best day at The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota is always New Book Day.

    The Digital Press is very pleased to announce the publication of Epoiesen, volume 2. Epoiesen is exactly what it says on the box: a journal for creative engagement in history and archaeology. It is edited by Shawn Graham at Carleton University in Ottawa in collaboration with  an impressive editorial board. The library at Carleton hosts digital side of the journal and The Digital Press publishes an annual paper and pdf version of articles.

    Cover Epoiesen2 DigitalFinal

    This issue includes a model for creating interactive, immersive historical texts using twine, an experiment in interactive mapping, and a graphic novella that explores the experience of 17th century witch trials in East Anglia. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, this volume includes an editorial essay by Shawn Graham titled “Citation as an Act of Enchantment” which reminds us that citation isn’t simply a professional responsibility or stylistic formality in academic writing, but a form of engagement that can “broaden the possibility space for what our research and engagement could be.”  Or, as the volume says on Katherine Cook‘s cover image: who you cite matters. This is important and very much in keeping with the spirit of Epoiesen.

    Shawn reflects:

    “After two years, I am excited by the range and variety of creative engagement we’ve seen in Epoiesen; but I’m more excited by the range and variety of voices we’ve heard. Nevertheless, we have work to do. We have to make it a daily, ordinary, occurrence to make space for others. As I say inside, ‘let our citation be a gift. Let it be an act of enchantment. Find the wonderful work, the uplifting work. Cite it. Build on it. Let your creative engagement with history and archaeology echo with voices you haven’t heard before.’”

    We’re proud to partner with Epoiesen to make their content available in paperback form and as free downloadable pdf. Check out both volumes for free and their website.

    In 2016 organiseerde het Koninklijk Instituut voor het Kunstpatrimonium (KIK) een eerste internationale workshop over de wetenschappelijke studie van relieken. Onlangs werden de proceedings van dit congres gepubilceerd. In het boek worden ook een aantal interdisciplinaire studies naar relieken in België besproken:

    – relieken van Sint-Odilia in Abdij Mariënlof (Kerniel- Borgloon
    – relieken van abdij Herkenrode (nu in de kathedraal van Hasselt
    – relieken van Relindis en Harlindis (Aldeneik)
    – reliekschrijn van de H. Dympna (Geel
    – relieken uit het schrijn van Sint-Guido (Anderlecht)

  • Post: Computer-Assisted Text Analysis for Resource-Scarce Literatures
    24-25 April 2019
    University of Miami, FL

    Call for Papers
    This two-day symposium aims to bring together scholars and researchers
    working with computational approaches to texts. The event targets a
    broad audience interested in the application of digital text analysis
    technology, as text mining, topic modeling, authorship detection,
    writing style analysis, text reuse, or more generally tasks performed
    through Natural Language Processing (NLP). These techniques have
    significant potential not only for the study of literature but also for
    the study of texts and language in general. The symposium aims to create
    an open forum for showcasing these techniques.

    The event is also grounded in the idea that computational text analysis
    should be integrated not only in the academic research by faculty and
    their PhD students, but also in a pedagogical environment. The use of
    computational analysis opens up new questions in literary studies, and
    exposes students to many different ways of thinking about literature today.

    Computer-aided literary studies still thus tend to be focused on
    literatures written in modern languages. NLP tools are quite developed
    for modern languages, especially for the modern English language. For
    medieval and premodern languages, due to their instability of
    orthographic forms, attempts to conduct computer-aided (thus, to a
    degree, systematic) research face many challenges to normalize and
    standardize their linguistic forms. Therefore, the symposium also aims
    to explore the use and challenge of using NLP tools for studying
    literatures written in underrepresented and historical languages, such
    as the medieval and premodern variants and precursors of Spanish,
    French, Latin, and Dutch. Therefore, a special focus will be on the
    preprocessing  routines available for these texts, such as
    lemmatization, by which we collect inflected forms under a single item
    or lemma, as well as challenges faced normalizing orthographic variation
    of historical texts and other languages with unstable orthographies.
    Among the international and national speakers we will have several
    experts on the topic.

    Our envisioned program for the symposium is as follows: On the first
    day, there will be several workshops, including one devoted to
    integrating computer-assisted analysis in the classroom, which will
    offer an introduction to stylometry, visualization, and text-reuse. On
    the second day, there will be talks (30 min) that present ongoing
    research projects, methodologies, and challenges. The subject languages
    are preferably, but not limited to underrepresented and historical

    We are specifically interested in receiving proposals for contributions
    on one or more of the following topics:

    Stylometry for authorship studies

    Stylometry as an approach to literary study

    Natural Language Processing and linguistic annotation

    Lemmatizers for underrepresented modern languages and old languages
    Text reuse detection


    Distributional semantics

    Network analysis

    Text visualization

    We especially welcome contributions from those working with any type of
    textual corpora, preferably those conceived for a specific research and/
    from a diachronic perspective. We conceive this symposium as an
    opportunity to share (best)-practices and broaden conversation, thus
    proposals can be on ongoing and experimental methodologies.

    Confirmed Speakers:
    Greta Franzini (Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore)

    Francisco Gago Jover (College of the Holly Cross)

    Mike Kestemont (University of Antwerp)

    Enrique Manjavacas  (University of Antwerp)
