The Study of Ocean Narratives in Digital Humanities

Jul 05, 2018 01:30 PM to Jul 06, 2018 04:00 PM

Kitz, Schauenburgerstr. 116, 24118 Kiel

Workshop Outline
Digital humanities are a rapidly evolving field of study, defined mainly by the use of computer-based methods and digital resources in humanities and cultural studies. While digital humanities have been considered a threat to and/or huge opportunity for classical humanities, they also entail innovative potential for the study of narratives in many subjects of humanities, social sciences, and beyond. We would like to explore this potential for studying Ocean Narratives. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds to comprehensively discuss these approaches. Keeping in mind that participants start from different points of departure, the workshop is structured around introductory presentations and provides plenty of room for questions and answers. The program of the workshop is divided into two parts. Part one focuses on core questions of narrative studies. We would like to use this opportunity to identify some common ground for a multidisciplinary perspective on Ocean Narratives. Part two introduces, explains and reflects on some digital tools and methods for studying narratives. We consider this workshop on narratives and digital humanities as a point of departure for a series of methodological workshops that discuss other approaches, theories, and methods for the study of narratives.

Day One: Narratives and the Core Fields of Narrative Analysis 
During the first day, an overview will be given of different methods and theories of narrative studies and tools in various fields of humanities and social sciences -ranging from hermeneutical approaches and structuralist narratology, to cognitive approaches and inter-medial narratology, to the study of strategic and counter narratives. Thus, we want to kick off a discussion about the potential of different narratological frameworks for the Ocean Narratives group as well as the possibilities of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Day Two: Narratives and Digital Humanities 
On the second day, we will explore in more detail which digital tools can be used to study narratives. We will also discuss crucial theoretical and empirical questions about the application of computational tools and methods to traditional humanities disciplines, such as: 
•    Which forms of computer-assisted analysis exist (in different disciplines) that can be used to study narratives?
•    Which new subjects of analysis and perspectives might be opened up by digital methods and tools?
•    How to integrate computer-assisted methods and tools into traditional hermeneutically oriented studies? And what are the limits of these new techniques?
•    Can digital humanities help to bridge the gap between quantitative and qualitative methods?
