Programme

Brothers Grimm, Jane Austen and Paulus Orosius have one thing in common: the eTRAP research team and its DH projects

Start: Feb 22, 2017 5:30:00 PM
End: Feb 22, 2017 6:30:00 PM

For two years the eTRAP early career research group at the University of Göttingen in Germany has been working on uncovering and classifying text reuse with a particular focus on historical languages. More specifically, the team looks at how authors copy, allude to, adapt, paraphrase and translate each other’s work as they spread their knowledge in writing. This team of ten (researchers and students) have been busy working on several DH projects – two of them centred on the fairy tales and the correspondence of the Brothers Grimm, one of them on the computational analysis of a simplified adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, and lastly a project on the reuse-packed literature of Paulus Orosius, mentee of Saint Augustine.
