HDAK00246U DAN; Digital Philology. Creating dynamic, interactive text editions
In this course we will discuss questions of theoretical, methodological and practical nature with relevance for the creation of interactive (dynamic) digital editions. We will discuss the concept of digital editions (and how they differ from their printed counterpart), and the students will gain first-hand experience with producing such editions.
The course will enable the students to create digital editions with advanced, dynamic interfaces, including the display and presentation of the text in various ways, the implementation of advanced search functionality (including KWIC concordances) and linking (e.g. between image zones and parts of the transcription as well as linking to external resources like online dictionaries).
The programming skills acquired should prove useful in many other contexts, e.g. within the growing field of Digital Humanities.
An example of an advanced digital edition produced by a student as part of a similar course taught in 2015 can be seen at https://notendur.hi.is/mjm7/.
