The Lexicon in Palermo

This week on 17-18 September 2015, LexiconSE contributor Luciano Lungo and his colleagues at the University of Palermo are organizing an international conference on ‘Contemporary Knowledge in the Humanities‘, and I’m really happy to be delivering a paper there as well. In my paper, I will introduce the Lexicon of Scholarly Editing to the conference’s wider audience of…

Encoding Manual Open for Everyone

Today, the BDMP Encoding Manual became freely accessible to anyone with an internet connection. In the first phase of transforming the BDMP’s in-house encoding manual into a more user-friendly documentation website, the website’s core materials (basically everything in our The Tags section) were only made available to BDMP contributors who logged into the website. The reason was…

CfP: DHBenelux 2015

On June 8-9, the University of Antwerp (the Lexicon’s home base) hosts the second edition of DHBenelux, a young international initiative that strives to further the dissemination of, and collaboration between Digital Humanities projects in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. One of my favorite parts of DHBenelux is that it actively encourages authors to submit abstracts for paper+poster…

Dutch Definitions in the Lexicon

Yesterday and today, I added two new sources to the Lexicon of Scholarly Editing: “Denkt aleer ge doende zijt, … Elektronische Teksteditie.” by Dirk Van Hulle, and “…en doende, denkt dan nog.

First off: Happy Holidays to anyone who is celebrating them! This morning, Antonio Rojas Castro asked me to translate a some German definitions from Patrick Sahle’s Digitale Editionsformen (that can be found in the Lexicon of Scholarly Editing) into English. In the spirit of the holidays, I decided to help Antonio (and anyone else who is interested)…

The Lexicon’s First Birthday

Two weeks ago, on the 19th of November, the Lexicon of Scholarly Editing celebrated its first birthday. So I thought it would be the perfect time to evaluate the progress we’ve made in the past year. Content As you can see on the Progress counter, the Lexicon now counts 618 definitions, taken from 64 different sources, spread…

The Lexicon is going to Helsinki!

I’ll start off this post by picking up the thread from my previous post on the Lexicon of Scholarly Editing to share the good news that – as I was hoping – September did become the Lexicon’s best month yet. And it wasn’t a close call either: with a total of 667 views, September more than doubled the score of…

Today, the latest edition of the international SHARP conference will take off, here in Antwerp, Belgium. It’s the 22nd edition of the annual conference of the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing.
