In 2021, the Projekt MiMoText was selected to be presented at the virtual annual conference of the Digital Humanities in the German-speaking world (vDHd2021), which had the overarching theme of “Experiments”. In six stations, insights into the MiMoText project were provided in an interactive, virtual format on 24.03.2021.
As an introduction to the project presentation, the individual sub-projects were presented by the respective project leaders in six videos. On the one hand, these impulse videos were intended to introduce the sub-projects and, on the other hand, to facilitate the entry into the dialogue in the virtual space with its project stations. In the videos, the sub-projects “bibliography”, “corpus of novels”, “secondary literature”, “modelling”, “law” and “infrastructure” were presented in depth. Concrete examples and a project pilot were used to illustrate the sub-projects and their approaches. A virtual room (wonder.me) made it possible to implement a concept for discussions at six flexibly changeable stations. This created a realistic and interactive communication platform.
The law sub-project and the mode of interdisciplinary cooperation with the digital humanities were presented at Station 5. The impulse video first explained the mode of interdisciplinary cooperation along the iterative procedural steps in the use of text and data mining in the humanities. Then the example of the use of scientific editions in text analyses was discussed and the ancillary copyright according to § 70 Coryright Act (UrhG). In this way, it was made clear how legal topics are identified from the ongoing project work that are also relevant for the digital humanities beyond the project context.
The IRDT contributes its legal expertise to the project. Prof. Dr. Raue and Frau Erler-Fridgen from the Institute are involved in the project.
