Göttingen Dialog in Digital Humanities - Reconstructing a website’s lost past - Methodological issues concerning the history of www.unibo.it

, 5:00 pm to

Speaker: Federico Nanni, University of Bologna/Italy

In my presentation I intend to describe how born digital documents could offer new insights on the recent history of the University of Bologna. My research is particularly focused on the methodological aspects of dealing with the “scarcity and abundance” (Rosenzweig, 2003) of born digital sources. In my talk I will present how I retrieved and analyzed materials from different web and newspapers archives and how I intend to employ computational methods (Natural Language Processing techniques and Topic Models) in order to extract information from the university digital library corpus.
