Digital Philology in practice: an overview of students' end of term projects

During the spring of 2022 (from March to May), students in the Digital Philology course (held by our visiting professor Julie Giovacchini) received introductory training in digital humanities applied to textual data: distant reading, text mining, data processing and visualization, encoding with mark-up language. In the framework of this course, they realized, alone or in groups of 2 or 3, personal projects on topics of their choice, for which they had to put into practice in an autonomous way some of the tools discussed in the course, and produce a report explaining their subject and their methodology. Here are some examples of their achievements.
