Digital image recognition techniques are developing rapidly. With this lecture, Jeroen Salman (associate professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Utrecht) will expand on searching and analyzing collections of pre-modern print materials and illustrated books.
Digital image recognition techniques are developing rapidly. In this lunch lecture, Jeroen Salman will discuss some of the tools available to book scholars to systematically search and analyze collections of pre-modern print materials and illustrated books (engravings, woodcuts). He will also share his experiences gained during his CLARIAH fellowship, in which he trained an algorithm with penny prints. To what extent can we use these techniques to answer fundamental questions about iconographic traditions, material characteristics, and transmediality?
CLARIAH hosts many fellows with various kinds of research. Our Lunch Lectures offer a great opportunity to get a glimpse of what they have been working on. All you have to do is grab your lunch, open your laptop and enjoy the lecture. They are open & accessible to everyone!
