LUCIS Masterclass Text Reuse

Wednesday 3 May 2017
Matthias de Vrieshof
Matthias de Vrieshof 4
2311 BZ Leiden

In this LUCIS masterclass about text reuse in the medieval Arab world, the digital humanities take centre stage. Visiting spring scholar Sarah Savant will demonstrate how computational research methods can help answer questions about authorship and citation practices, as well as give shape to the networks through which texts have passed.

During the first half of the class Sarah Savant will talk about her project in depth, and there will be time for plenty of discussion. Afterwards, student Mees Gelein will comment on his work building a Chinese text reuse module for the MARKUS platform. Finally, professor of Buddhist studies Jonathan Silk will comment from the perspective of his project to link Buddhist texts in various languages. Maxim Romanov, a Leipzig-based scholar of Islamic culture will also be present to comment on the role of DH practices in his research.
