Logo 10 años

The ULPGC has echoed the tenth anniversary of the University Institute of Textual Analysis and Applications and has published a news item to better publicize the Institute and all the achievements of these 10 years.

The IATEXT is the only research institute dedicated to Digital Humanities in the Canary Islands, and in this first decade its 89 assigned researchers have signed a scientific production of more of 2,300 publications.

Among the most notable results of the research developed at IATEXT are the 27 computer applications for research, education and documentation. These applications cover multiple aspects, such as search engines for Modernist Texts of the Canary Islands (ModeCan) , which delve into the work of Tomás Morales, Alonso Quesada and Saulo Torón; Amerlex, a large online and open database to gather the lexical Americanisms present in Spanish and English texts from the centuries XVI and XVII; TIP Stilometry, an application intended for text analysis, through a set of calculations statistics based on the morphological and syntactic characteristics of the text whose results are represented through the use of tables and graphs; o Canarias Azul, a database that compiles   complete, rigorous and attractive information on material and intangible heritage elements linked to the coast of Gran Canaria.

All this research is carried out within the nine Divisions that the Institute has, in which 89 researchers work in total: 58 full-time linked to the ULPGC, 15 collaborators, 8 honorary researchers, 5 predoctoral researchers and 3 researchers with postdoctoral contracts.
