Name it!

Letters and texts moved to Trier a while ago now. We feel very well taken care of in our new home. After getting everything to work and all, it was time to settle on a domain name – for good. We had difficulties deciding what to keep from the elements that matter…

Possessing books

The current debate on Open Access often weirdly focuses on the question whether we want to give in to the poor ethics of people who want books to disappear. First, it is not true; second, most of OA partisans have a huge personal book collection and third, what is it about possessing…

Migration: successful!

Our edition is now hosted by the Trier Center for Digital Humanities. The corpora have landed softly, the SVN is now operational (thanks to the technical team in Trier!) – in other words: we can get back to work on the edition. Boeckh and Euler are the ones who will be…

Why I still hate MS Word 18 years later

During the #dhd2016 conference as well as in the course of our study on research practices in the humanities, I could do nothing but note that MS Word remains one, if not the most important digital tool for today’s humanists (I mentioned it in this blogpost in French and in this…

You may say I’m a blogger

In half an hour time, my task will be to explain how you are supposed to blog properly (I have the pleasure and honor to give a workshop on scholarly blogging with Mareike König at the #DHd2016 pre-conference), which is somewhat weird since I feel like it is precisely what I…

Le nom et l’être

Dans ma timeline, il y a des gens qui se cachent derrière un pseudonyme: parfois je sais qui c’est, parfois je me dis que je devrais avoir reconnu les gens, mais je ne sais pas. Cela concerne finalement un nombre considérable de personnes avec qui j’échange. À tâtons, donc. Il y…

Intellectual genealogies – first draft of a model

Coming back from Vienna and a conference on poet and Shakespeare-translator Ludwig Tieck, I also sent my sole German paper on visualization of correspondences to the editor and am preparing to crash-write a paper on network visualization for the study of Henriette Herz (a follow-up to last summer’s conference, where Selma…

Brand new (virtual) worlds

I started sorting my (currently 5) professional construction sites today in order to rationalize my work hours. I will be active in WP3 of the PARTHENOS project, also in WP2 of the IPERION project; I am managing editor of the Journal of the TEI, should get more involved in the editorial process…

Being cute (portrait of the scientist as a reviewer)

Of course, I could and would work tonight. But my brain is fried after over 6 hours of tele/videoconference today. Also, I had a meeting with the school administration of my district in between telcos and have to think about what it means for the next steps in bringing refugee…

Femme romantique, femme numérique – un hommage à Ada Lovelace

Le texte ci-dessous est celui de mon intervention à la soirée consacrée à Ada Lovelace à l’institut d’études avancées de Paris le 2 décembre 2015. On m’a justement fait remarquer que la notion de romantisme aurait gagné à être définie. Je promets de développer cet aspect (laissé ici, il est vrai, un peudans…

Turning a page

You all know the reason why I have been such a poor blogger recently. I have been trying to help on an organisational level with the wave of refugees that keeps coming in Berlin. It started with filling the truck of the car at IKEA’s a the end of July, continued…

I shall not rest (after the Paris attacks, November 14th)

I am a very lucky person. If things go according to plan, I will be able to submit my habilitation in 2016. It turned out very recently that my research of the last 10 years is rich enough to be submitted as an habilitation à diriger des recherches in France.…
