Zoomable Text and the Metaphor of Scale in Digital Humanities


The lecture will focus on the metaphor of scale and zooming as a way to imagine and revisit concepts, methods and tools for processing, analysing and interpreting data and for building knowledge in digital history and digital humanities. It will also include an empirical perspective on the concept of “zoomable text” and a dedicated interface, allowing for variable scale representation, exploration and interpretation of texts.
