Making visible the invisible. Metrical patterns, contrafacture and compilation in a Medieval Castilian Songbook
This panel presents new primary research results in the formal study of poetry and poetics that have been made possible by the development and use of innovative digital technologies. The research questions underlying the presentations are varied, as are the linguistic and cultural traditions (early modern and modern Russian; medieval Spanish; and Urdu [in comparison with Hindi/Sanskrit and Persian/Arabic]). What unites the three presentations is 1) a focus on using digital technologies to create humanities knowledge that would not otherwise be possible; 2) the development of innovative methodologies that are able to address those research questions; and 3) the building of new digital tools that make it possible to address new research needs.
