Käynnissä oleva Svenska Litteratursällskapetin hanke:
MEDELTIDA BALLADER I FINLANDS SVENSKBYGDER
http://www.sls.fi/sv/projekt/medeltida- ... enskbygder
Utgivningsprojektet Medeltida ballader i Finlands svenskbygder syftar till att ge ut ballader som har sjungits på svenska i Finland. Den vetenskapliga balladutgåvan ska omfatta alla kända medeltidsballader som tryckts, upptecknats eller spelats in på svenska i Finland. Balladen är en samnordisk och i stor utsträckning sameuropeisk visgenre genom att visor med samma eller liknande motiv förekommer i flera europeiska länder. I de nordiska länderna finns en gemensam skandinavisk balladtradition – också på finska sjungs ballader ur den skandinaviska traditionen.

Det svenska balladmaterialet i Finland, som finns framför allt i traditionssamlingarna i Svenska litteratursällskapets arkiv i Helsingfors och Vasa, har väckt internationell uppmärksamhet genom sin ålderdomlighet och livskraft. I detta nu finns det ca 1 500 balladbelägg i arkiven. De äldsta uppteckningarna och inspelningarna är 170 år, men det bevarade materialet har avsevärt djupare rötter.

Projektet beviljades 400 000 euro och kommer att sysselsätta en huvudredaktör, en melodiredaktör och en textredaktör 2018–2019. Huvudredaktör och projektledare är professor Ann-Mari Häggman.

Käynnissä oieva SLS:n hanke:
http://www.sls.fi/sv/projekt/henry-parlands-skrifter
HENRY PARLANDS SKRIFTER
Henry Parland (1908–1930) var en av de ledande modernisterna på svenska i Finland och kanske den modernaste av dem alla. Han var speciellt intresserad av urbana fenomen som teknik, reklam och film, och var den första egentliga filmkritikern i Finland. Parlands roman Sönder har utkommit i översättning till tyska, engelska, finska, franska, ryska, spanska och litauiska. Hans dikter i urval har också översatts till ett antal språk, bland dem engelska, tyska, franska och spanska.

År 2005 utgav SLS Sönder som textkritisk utgåva och i januari 2015 inleddes arbetet med utgivningen av Parlands samlade produktion. Första delen av Skrifter, som omfattar författarens dikter, planeras utkomma 2018 både i tryck och som fritt tillgänglig digital utgåva. Den textkritiska utgåvan av dikterna omfattar både de dikter som trycktes under författarens livstid eller postumt och hittills opublicerade verk. Den digitala utgåvan innehåller också författarens olika versioner av enskilda dikter. De övriga delarna av Skrifter omfattar skönlitterär prosa, publicistik och korrespondens.

Propreau – Profiling Premodern Authors
https://blogit.utu.fi/propreau/

Propreau – Profiling Premodern Authors

The Consortium Profiling Premodern Authors (PROPREAU) applies and develops new flexible machine learning-based tools for the analysis and classification of texts in order to explore several fundamental and unresolved questions of authorship in classical and medieval Latin texts. Despite the cultural importance of Latin, many essential texts remain anonymous. This is largely so because of the highly conservative nature of Latin based culture, characterized by imitation of earlier authors and quoting excerpts of their texts. Therefore, authorship attribution requires an analysis and comparison of large quantities of text. PROPREAU incorporates machine learning-based tools developed at the Turku NLP Group (IT Department) into the conventional argumentation of the humanities, allowing a much wider look at textual material than is attainable by single scholars using conventional methods.

The expected results of the Consortium are new, well-grounded answers to questions of authorship that were previously considered unsolvable. PROPREAU will provide guidelines and new computational methods for future endeavors to identify anonymous premodern texts. The subproject at the Department of Cultural History addresses several significant aspects of the Latin literary culture: reconsidering and re-attribution of Ciceronian corpus, patristic texts and their medieval imitation, forgery and authencity of early-medieval works, and the identification of late-medieval polemical treatises.

The researchers of the Turku NLP Group are responsible for the computational analysis, using both a simple but effective linear classifier, Support Vector Machine (SVM), as well as the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), representing the current state of the art in text classification. Both classifiers have been proven effective in the attribution tasks of modern texts, but their implementation to ancient and medieval works requires new solutions.

The Consortium is funded by the Academy of Finland, Digital Humanities Academy Programme (2016-2019)

Computational History and the Transformation of Public Discourse in Finland, 1640-1910
http://www.utu.fi/fi/yksikot/hum/yksiko ... omhis.aspx

Computational History and the Transformation of Public Discourse in Finland, 1640-1910, (Academy of Finland, 2016-2019), a consortium together with the National Library of Finland, the Faculty of Humanities, University of Helsinki and the Department of Information Technology, University of Turku).

Consortium PI: Hannu Salmi (University of Turku)

Subproject PIs: Kimmo Kettunen (National Library of Finland), Tapio Salakoski (University of Turku), Hannu Salmi (University of Turku), Mikko Tolonen (University of Helsinki)

The consortium Computational History and the Transformation of Public Discourse in Finland, 1640–1910 (COMHIS) is based on the cooperation of four partners, The Faculty of Humanities at the University of Helsinki, the Departments of Cultural History and Information Technology at the University of Turku and the Centre for Preservation and Digitisation of the National Library of Finland. This brings together relevant complementary expertise on the research subject (eighteenth- and nineteenth-century history), methodology (computational sciences and language technology) and data (the preservation and enhancement of digital resources). The consortium establishes national collaboration in a key research area that is further linked with the very best international research centers via already existing collaborations.

The objective is to reassess the scope, nature, development, and transnational connections of public discourse in Finland, 1640–1910. Two complementary approaches will be utilized, one based on the use of library catalogue metadata and the other based on the full text-mining of all the digitized Finnish newspapers and journals published before 1910. In previous research, public discourse in Finland has been largely approached from the perspective of the breakthrough of the Finnish language, the role of elite discourse at the university, early Swedish-language newspapers, and book history. COMHIS combines all these perspectives, and analyzes further how language barriers, elite culture and popular debate, text reuse as well as different publication channels interacted. Earlier historians have not been able to analyze, for example, the entire record of Finnish publications, including newspapers. The point of this undertaking is to begin to fill this gap with multidiscilinary collaboration and identify overlooked moments of transformation in Finnish public discourse. Such extensive materials as Finnish newspapers and journals do not exist in digitized form in many other European contexts. COMHIS has thus a unique opportunity to carry out pioneering work. To conduct its research, COMHIS introduces the concept of open data analytical ecosystems which represents a key methodological innovation in the field of digital humanities.
