Clotho: Network Analysis and Distant Reading on Perseus Latin Corpus

Anthony Glaise (Paris IV-Sorbonne and the École Normale Supérieure)
Thibault Clerice (Center for e-Research, King's College London and the École des Chartes)

Date: Tuesday, 25th March 2014, from 6.15pm to 7.30pm (GMT)
Location: Anatomy Museum Space, 6th Floor, King's College London (Strand Campus)
http://www.kcl.ac.uk/campuslife/campuses/strand/Strand.aspx

Abstract: Clotho is born from a simple need: doing distant reading on a Latin corpus. Why should we do distant reading? We can see many reasons including word sense induction, sentiment analysis, network analysis which were the one we were looking for.

            Through we think sentiment analysis stricto sensu is not possible in Latin, we aim to provide a way to do that quantitatively through context and network analysis. This does not replace the meme of conventional scholarship; where an expert reader parses a text and pronounces on the nature of its sentiment. Rather, we think that the proper nature of the Latin exemplum and auctoritas is liable to support interpretation by polarizing words according to their strict meaning(s). The Clotho project is divided in two tools. The first one is based on python software, which enables the distant reading of the corpus and the export of its results. The other is a PHP platform which enables a team or a crowd to annotate and clean the results. Both are relatively easy to install and fully open source so new functionalities of wide application can be added.

            For this project, there have been two outputs:

                        - the first one is Cicero's Network which has been realised with an earlier version of Clotho's Python interface

                        - the second one is Lasciva Roma, a project which will be launched during the seminar, whose aim is to annotate the Latin semantic field of sexuality.

Speakers:

Anthony Glaise

Former MA student at Paris-IV Sorbonne, preparing Agr?gation's exams at Paris IV-Sorbonne and at École Normale Supérieure. Anthony worked on the Greek Christian literature of the 4th century and more precisely on anti-Judaic works by John Chrysostom.

Thibault Clerice

            Research Developer at the Center for e-Research, Kings College London, and MA student at the Ecole des Chartes ( Paris ). Thibault's works focus on both crowd-sourcing and Ancient Rome genders and sexuality. His current MA Thesis topic tries to enlighten the possibilities of digital methods in Latin onomastics and anthropology.
Attendance is free and open to all, but registration is requested:
