The dramatic expansion of newspapers over the 19th century created a global culture of abundant, rapidly circulating information. The significance of the newspaper has largely been defined in metropolitan and national terms in scholarship, while digitization by local institutions further situates newspapers in national contexts. OcEx brings together leading efforts in computational periodicals research from six countries—Finland, Germany, Mexico, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States—to examine patterns of information flow across national and linguistic boundaries.

Through computational analysis, OcEx also crosses the boundaries that separate digitized newspaper corpora to illustrate the global connectedness of 19th century newspapers. OcEx uncovers how the international was refracted through the local as news, advice, vignettes, popular science, poetry, fiction, and more. By linking research across large-scale digital newspaper collections, OcEx offers a model for data custodians that host large-scale humanities data.

The “Center for Reflected Text Analytics” (CRETA) focuses on the development of technical tools and a general workflow methodology for text analysis within Digital Humanities. Of particular importance is the transparency of tools and traceability of results, such that they can be employed in a critically-reflected way. CRETA is a collaboration project with partners from studies of literature, language, history, politics, philosophy, and computational linguistics and data visualization.

QuaDramA – Quantitative Drama Analytics – is a research project we currently conduct at Stuttgart University. The aim of the project is the development of new methods to analyse dramatic texts and the investigation of drama-historic developments using these new methods. The core idea of QuaDramA is the complementation of analysing structural information (e.g., acts and scenes) with an NLP-supported analysis of the figure speech.

MUSE is a clothes- and costume repository supporting to capture, store and analyze clothes and costumes. The concrete costumes occurring in films can be captured in their relevant details and analyzed to identify abstract costume patterns. Based on comprehensive taxonomies of costume relevant parameters MUSE enables advanced query- and analysis capabilities on concrete costumes. This supports the detection of costume patterns. Costume patterns are defined as an abstracted solution to determine an adequate textile expression of a film character.

Duration 2006 - 2018
Tags Quantitative Analysis
Methods and Tools

The scientific goal of the SFB 732 is to achieve a better understanding of the mechanisms that lead to ambiguity control/disambiguation as well as the enrichment of missing/incomplete information and to develop methods that are able to fully describe these mechanisms. The basic hypothesis in the SFB is that such processes generally involve specification of an underspecified input. Our research involves statistical, rule-based, comparative and corpus-based methods, to which we will add  experimental methods in the second phase of funding.
