From the corpus of research in the humanities to the digital project

6 ECTS (year)

Educational leaders: Léa Saint-Raymond and Valérie Theis.

How do you build a body of research and add value to it in a digital environment? Based on a concrete example – the Archives normaliennes project – this course will introduce students to all the stages of a collaborative research project in the digital humanities, from the constitution of the corpus to its exploration, editorialization and publication. Learn more.

Numbers and letters: the computational analysis of language at the service of the study of texts (S2)

6 ECTS (S2)

Educational leader: Florian Cafiero. This course is also registered in the Literature and Language department.

Whether they are dedicated to simple tasks, such as identifying lexicon, syntactic phenomena, particular rhythms, or whether they venture to identify the major themes of a text, the stylistic idiosyncrasies of an author, or the narrative structures of a work, so-called “automatic language processing” tools are playing an increasingly important role in contemporary literary studies. What are the main contributions obtained by these computational approaches? When should we integrate (or not!) these methods into our work? How to use it? It is to answer these questions that this course will tackle, by exploring in a theoretical and practical way the possibilities offered by these tools, their results, and their limits.
