La investigadora del IATEXT, Verónica C. Trujillo-González, de la División de Variación y Cambio Lingüistico, y Richard Walter (ITEM/CNRS-ENS) organizan un seminario internacional en las instalaciones del IATEXT los días 5 al 9 de marzo.

Este seminario se desarrolla en el marco del proyecto « Pratiques culturelles de l’édition numérique ». La hipótesis de partida del seminario es que la digitalización no puede entenderse como una práctica uniforme, sino que cada objeto, cada proyecto requiere una conceptualización concreta en función de múltiples variables. El principal objetivo del seminario es reflexionar sobre la multitud de variantes que implica el desarrollo de cualquier proyecto de edición digital de corpus patrimoniales para dar respuestas a las distintas necesidades que estas prácticas plantean.
