Mapping women’s jobs and social status in the Romanian ELTeC collection
The researchers will explore level 2 of the Romanian ELTeC collection, part of the European Literary Text Collection (ELTeC), which currently has 100 Romanian novels published between 1840 and 1920. They will analyse the distribution of women’s occupations vs. social status in the Romanian ELTeC collection. They will present the problems encountered (those related to the lack of instruments for the Romanian language); the extractions of NE (females’ name) and possible lists of nouns, adjectives, and verbs that show the women’s jobs and social status; their data analysis.
* Thursday, May 25th, 15h-16h CEST
Alba Comino (Institute of Contemporary History, Lisbon, Portugal)
Latin American Women Travel Logs in the 20th Century: some digital approaches to Clorinda Matto de Turner
The interdisciplinary project REWIND develops an original approach to analyse the European Cultural Heritage (ECH) as a construction of collective memories using travel books written by Latin American women who visited Europe before the Second World War. The researcher will use the book Viaje de Recreo (1909) by the Peruvian Clorinda Matto de Turner (1852-1909) as a case-study. She will applies XML-TEI encoding to tag all the references about monuments, museums, historical places, artworks, etc., that Matto de Turner visited during her travel around Europe in 1908. After geo-semantic annotation, she will map this data to visualize her itinerary and will connect the information about the ECH using LOD.
* Thursday, June 22nd, 15h-16h CEST
