New grant funded for Coptic digital studies

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has approved Dr. Amir Zeldes’ (Humboldt University) proposal for a young researcher group on Digital Humanities at HU Berlin, starting early next year. The project is called KOMeT (Korpuslinguistische Methoden für eHumanities mit TEI), and aims to apply corpus linguistics methods to ancient texts encoded in TEI XML, focusing initially on richly annotated corpora of Sahidic Coptic. Dissertations within the group will be mentored by Frank Kammerzell, Anke Lüdeling, Laurent Romary and myself.

The group will cooperate with the SCRIPTORIUM project that Dr. Zeldes and I presented at our workshop in Berlin in May.
