Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center Room 626

In conjunction with the Price Lab for Digital Humanities, the Penn Libraries will be hosting a series of presentations titled, "Building a Corpus and Making it Work!" on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 2. This event focuses on building as well as using corpora in non-Western languages and covers existing and proposed digital corpora, and potential applications. Seven invited speakers will discuss their projects related to East Asian text digitization, manipulation, and analysis. All are welcome and the presentations will appeal to those in the humanities, computer science, data visualization, and more; there will be plenty of time for discussion among the disciplines. The language of the event is English although the content covered will necessarily involve resources in Japanese and Chinese.
