EASE: Exploring Anglo-Saxon Eloquence
The aim of the EASE workshop series is to draw attention to the new digital platform Evoke, created at Leiden University, and to explore its value for various fields of research.
This platform is meant to open up historical thesauri for research. The first thesaurus that Evoke supports is the Thesaurus of Old English, which allows scholars to take a closer look at Anglo-Saxon language and culture. This workshop series aims to explore the kinds of inquiries that researchers would want to make using these two resources and to ensure that such efforts can be accomplished with relative ease. For a first glance at the Evoke platform in combination with the Thesaurus of Old English, see http://evoke.ullet.net.
