Her lecture will explore the intersections of language and space in the historical and cultural visualization of St Petersburg. It will be preceded by short talks on intersecting ideas. The event is free but please register at https://bit.ly/2MrHDp2 to secure a place. Programme. "Computing / Humanities: Whats the Relationship?" Willard McCarty (Professor emeritus, King's College London) --- "Territoriality in Cyberspace: Dealing with Contested Geographies in the Age of Google Maps" Stuart Dunn (Senior Lecturer in Digital Humanities & Deputy Head, DDH) This talk will offer a brief overview of how conflict and competing claims on physical land are represented in the digital world. Drawing on examples from Cyprus and Greece, it will ask the question of how the digital is driving us to reconsider the idea of what a border is. --- "Thinking and Modelling Spatio-Temporality across Languages" Gabriele Salciute Civiliene (Lecturer in Digital Humanities Education, DDH) Language helps us talk about mental representations of time and space. The metaphors of spatializing time and temporalizing space differ, revealing how we reason across cultures. Language use and text making, on the other hand, are situated in and enmeshed with our being in and experience of time and space whose intimacy, specificity, and multiplicity are hidden underneath the conventionalized surface of texts. In this talk, I will consider how the computing of translations by repetemes (i.e. strings of repetitions) opens up, among other things, a possibility for modelling spatio-temporal patterns that instantiate Gadamers being-in-the-world-through-being-in-language. --- "Visualizing St Petersburg Based on Russian Corpus Analysis" Antonina Puchkovskaia (Associate Professor, ITMO University, Saint-Petersburg, Russia) What is/are Digital Humanities? How to rise a research question challenging enough for both Humanities and Computer Science fields? What are the challenges of doing DH at the predominantly STEM-based University? This lecture will revolve around interdisciplinary research in progress situated at the intersection of history, librarian studies, cultural studies, and information technologies. The aim of this research is to create an open-source-software-based web application by using historical and cultural heritage data on the key landmarks of St. Petersburg. Our deliverables are an educational database and web/mobile applications into which users will be able to tap by means of retrospective visualization and an interactive city map that would track nearby objects via users geolocation. To that end, we are analyzing both sources and records. In our case, sources are manuscripts that range from a single paragraph to a multi-volume book. Records are source fragments that can range from a single record to hundreds of sections, pages, or paragraphs in a book. Our database schema links people, occasions, and dates based on primary sources. Finally, all objects are being mapped onto an interactive city map of St. Petersburg, the interface of which will facilitate easy navigation and allow filtering by different categories such as restaurants, music salons, and apartments. ----- Dr Gabriele Salciute Civiliene Lecturer in Digital Humanities Education Departmentof Digital Humanities King's College London Room C0.08, Chesham Bldg, Strand Campus, WC2B 2LS Telephone: + 44 (0)20 7848 7145 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org DRaL (Distant Reading across Languages) Project: https://www.kdl.kcl.ac.uk/our-work/distant-reading/ -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-06-03 21:06:18+00:00 From: Valeria Vitale Subject: Digital Classicist Seminar: The CART-ography Project Institute of Classical Studies Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU Friday June 7, 2019 at 16:30 in room G34 Chelsea Gardner (Hawai'i) & Rebecca Seifried (IMS-FORTH) The CART-ography Project: Cataloguing Ancient Routes and Travels in the Mani Peninsula The CART-ography Project (Cataloguing Ancient Routes and Travels in the Mani Peninsula) is a new multidisciplinary archaeological and DH research initiative that documents and analyzes the routes of early explorers to the Mani peninsula in southern Lakonia, Greece. The project will assess the value of travelers' records in reconstructing archaeological landscapes. We present our methodology and preliminary results of the project: first, how we use GIS to reconstruct the routes taken by early travelers throughout the Mani peninsula, including Pausanias, Cyriacus of Ancona, Colonel Leake and Patrick Leigh Fermor; and second, the goals for the 2019 fieldwork season.

The 2019 edition will be held on June 23-26, 2019 in the Mundaneum, Mons, Belgium. The program is online at : http://www.histocrypt.org HistoCrypt addresses all aspects of historical cryptography and cryptanalysis. The conference's subjects include, but are not limited to: * the use of cryptography in military, diplomacy, business, and other areas * analysis of historical ciphers with the help of modern computerized methods * unsolved historical cryptograms, including the Voynich Manuscript * the Enigma and other encryption machines * the history of modern (computer-based) cryptography * linguistic aspects of cryptography * the influence of cryptography on the course of history * teaching and promoting cryptography in schools, universities, and the public We are looking forward to seeing you in Mons, Belgium The Organizing Committee of HistoCrypt 2019 Contact: email@example.com Best regards, Pierre Pierre Mounier-Kuhn CNRS & Sorbonne Université https://cnrs.academia.edu/PierreMounierKuhn _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: firstname.lastname@example.org List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
