UCLDH guest lecture: Sukanta Chaudhuri, 'The Electronic Tagore: a Variorum Website'
Publication date: Oct 21, 2013 04:16 PM
Start: Nov 20, 2013 05:30 PM
Location: G31, Foster Court
This talk will offer a guided tour of Bichitra, a variorum website of the works of Rabindranath Tagore in Bengali and English. The site was created at the School of Cultural Texts and Records, Jadavpur University, India, and launched in May. It is by far the biggest literary database to date, with over 140,000 pages of primary material. There is also a full electronic bibliography, a search engine that functions as a hyperconcordance, and an innovative three-tier collation program, Prabhed.
Sukanta Chaudhuri, the principal co-ordinator of the project, will take the audience through the various features of Bichitra, in particular the new collation program and other text-processing software. He will also weave in the human story of the making of this giant website.
Sukanta Chaudhuri is Professor Emeritus at Jadavpur University and currently Visiting Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford.
