Hnutí okolo tzv. digital humanities přichází jako reakce humanitních a sociálních věd na rozvoj výpočetní techniky a nových (digitálních) médií od poloviny minulého století. S nástupem počítačů se postupně objevují projekty využívající jejich výpočetní sílu a možnosti zpracovávat množství informací, které jsou jinak prakticky neuchopitelné jednotlivcem. Kurz představuje uvedení do využívání technik digital humanities a jejich síly pro výzkum v digitální éře. Kurz má za cíl spojit teoreticé základy nového přístupu v humanitních vědách s praktickými projekty studentů. Účastníci se během kurzu seznámí se současnými trendy a vyzkouší si řadu metodických postupů. Absolovent kursu by měl porozumět změnám, které přináší digitální zpracování dat do oblasti humanitních věd.

One of the first pioneers in this area is considered to be the Jesuit Roberto Buso, who came with the project of complete processing of Index Verborum by Thomas Aquinas in 1949. The project itself was finally carried out in 1974–1980 and published in a printed version of 56 volumes with the support of IBM. In the project, Thomas Aquinas's work was completely transcribed into punch cards, and then a complete concordance was created by the computer. Today, the Thomisticus Index is accessible online, which enables searching for all occurrences of the word even in a bulk piece of work in fractions of seconds.

This groundbreaking project is a great example of the basics of digital humanities. It was enabled by computing power and new media, changing the approach to research itself, and finally changing the overall approach to the information that the research is based on. These changes are precisely what defines the area of digital humanities and the content of this seminar.

 

1. What are Digital Humanities?

Keywords: digital humanities, social computing, humanities versus social sciences

Main topics: Explanation of main methodological approaches in digital humanities. Clarify the change brought by the concept of digital humanities to the research work of humanities. Answering the question of how this change is possible and how does it change the idea of the methodological anchoring of the humanities. Problems with the application of the Popper method of understanding the natural sciences on humanities.
