Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

The course aims to provide students with an overview of the main concepts and ideas of textual criticism applied to literary texts, focusing on their linguistic status, their transmission, and their manuscript and print tradition. The particular pitch of the module, aimed to beginners, will inspire students with basic or limited knowledge of literary history, linguistics and textual criticism to engage with a new and innovative approach to literary texts. Through a series of workshops on shared digital platforms, by the end of the course the students will be able to recognize a DSE (Digital Scholarly Edition), to compare the different theoretical and methodological frameworks for its realization according to national and international standards, and to design their own digital edition.

Metodi didattici

Face-to-face classes and laboratory/workshop sessions of 15 lessons (30 hours). During the first lesson students will be given a Welcome Text, to text the class level. After the first theoretical lessons, some case studies will be dealt, and students will choose a topic on which they will write a 20.000 bytes paper (see Assessment methods).

We will use digital platform (Mentimeter), php and audio materials available on http://iol.unibo.it [http://iol.unibo.it/] and innovative Digital Scholarly Training video lessons taken from the ERC DIXIT Project https://teach.dariah.eu.

Modalità di verifica e valutazione dell'apprendimento

The exam is made up of:

1. A WRITTEN EXAM (on EOL) of multiple choice (part 1) and open (part 2) questions on the topics covered in the theoretical part of the course. Successful students will pass to part 2 by answering 18 out of 30 questions (part 1). The grade of the written exam will be averaged with the grade of the SDE review and the oral exam. 

2. A DSE REVIEW (maximum 20.000 bytes Bibliography included), in which students will review a chosen DSE following RIDE guidelines; the paper must be sent at least ten days before the Exam (paola.italia@unibo.it).

3. AN ORAL EXAM in which students will discuss their review and will show that they know the topics covered during the course and have studied the compulsory bibliography.

Reaching a clear view of all the course topics, and go deep into the essay chosen topic, as well as using a correct language terminology will be valued with maximum rankings. Mnemonic knowledge of the course topics or not completely appropriate terminology will be valued with intermediate rankings. Unknown topics or inappropriate terminology use will be valued, depending on the seriousness of the omissions, with minimal or insufficient rankings.

Strumenti a supporto della didattica

Digital platform (Mentimeter), audio recording of the lessons, Php and didactic materials available on http://iol.unibo.it, and innovative Digital Scholarly Training video lessons taken from the ERC DIXIT Project https://teach.dariah.eu.
