Digital Classicist & Institute of Classical Studies Seminar 2012

Friday June 29th at 16:30
Room G37, Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU

Marco Buchler & Gregory Crane (Leipzig),
Historical Text Re-use Detection on Perseus Digital Library

ALL WELCOME

Text re-use detection is about uncovering quotations, paraphrases, 
allusions, or even analogies and translations. Since quoting never 
happens by chance but by a positive (agree with an earlier author’s 
text) or negative (disagree) purpose, we propose to use text re-use 
techniques for quantitative generation of text re-use graphs and 
identifying from them hotly quoted passages of a work that are used for 
scoring it by a "Cultural Heritage GooglePage" technique.
	
The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
