  • Organizer reflections on data(Tinget) and using UCloud
    For the majority of researchers and students of the humanities, digital methods are far from standard procedure, and this is exactly what initiatives such as the datasprints organised and financed by The Royal Danish Library hope to change. The value of digital methods in the humanities is gradually becoming clearer across disciplines. However, as programming […]
  • Detecting text reuse in H.C. Andersen’s work
    (…)In 2019, senior researcher Ejnar Stig Askgaard from Odense City Museums began comparing Hans Christian Andersen’s notes, written between approximately 1833 – 1875, with the 162 fairy tales, novels and autobiographies. This had led to the discovery that Hans Christian Andersen liked to use symbols such as cross marks or deletions in his notes to indicate that the note had been reused in his […]
  • Digital Humanities
    Researchers within the field of humanities are typically not heavy users of HPC (High Performance Computing) or cloud computing. However, a book, once digitalized, is actually quite a big data set. Assistant Professor at the department of Design and Communication, Zhiru Sun, tells us how she has been helping researchers from the Faculty of Humanities […]
