    • In Search for an Appropriate Tool for the Humanities
      • The Humanities have an object of research (data) of their own: meaningful „text“ in a broad sense
      • This specific object implies specific methods: analysis and interpretation in a scientific community
      • New Media offer a lot of relevant digital technologies.
      • There is no tool that implements the crucial methods of the Humanities with these technologies.
      www.textmachina.uzh.ch
    • 2. A) The Humanities have an object of research of their own: „text“
      • By „Text“ we mean any kind of object that needs to be read or interpreted because of meaningful nature.
      www.textmachina.uzh.ch
    • 2. B) This specific object implies specific methods: professional reading in a scientific community
      • Quantitative and q ualitative analysis
      • Semiotic and h ermeneutic Interpretation: dialectic feedback between holistic assumption and detailled examination
      • Intertextual contextualization: references, intertexts
      • Discourse Analysis: Institutions, frequencies and order
      • Dialogical discourse in the scientifc community
      www.textmachina.uzh.ch
    • 2. C) New Media offer a lot of relevant digital technologies
      • D igital text processing (scientific writing)
      • Q uantitative and statistical analysis (counting, comparing, analysis of frequencies and correlations)
      • M anual analysis (marking, highlighting, annotating)
      • Hyperreferencing and commenting
      • Knowledge organization, accessing and archiving
      • R esearch and publishing
      • D ialogical collaboration with peers
      www.textmachina.uzh.ch
    • 2. D) We miss tools...
      • ...that combine these technologies in order to implement the crucial methods of the Humanities.
