[DHd-blog] Call for application – Lexical Data Master Class


via Laurent Romary

The Lexical Data Master Class aims at bringing together 20 trainees together with experts to share experiences, methods and techniques for the creation, management and use of digital lexical data.

Co-organized by DARIAH, the Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW), Inria and the Belgrade Center for Digital Humanities, with the support of the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and DARIAH-DE, the Lexical Data Master Class will take place in Berlin at the BBAW from 4 to 8 December 2017.

The masterclass will cover a wide range of topics ranging from general models for lexical content and TEI-based representation of lexical data to managing digital lexica as online resources and working efficiently with XML editors. The participants will have a chance to attend different sessions and to consult with experts on their own dictionary projects.

Training material produced for and during the master-class will be converted, revised and submitted for peer-reviewed publication in #dariahTeach <https://teach.dariah.eu/>, an online training platform, partially as supplements to the existing #dariahTeach  course on Digitizing Legacy Dictionaries, and partially in the form of dariahTeach Workshops (on topics such as “XPath for Lexicographers” or “Representing Morphological Data in Digital Lexica”).

Dictionary samples used and annotated during the Master Class will be published in the ENEL WG2 / PARTHENOS GitHub repository.

Potential applicants should submit a short proposal presenting their background and interest in the field together with a description of a particular project involving lexical data that they would like to pursue during the master class.

Participation is free of charge. Travel costs and accommodation will be covered for all participants up to a maximum of 600€.
