Ph.D. in Linguistics - 37° ciclo (October 1, 2021 - September 30, 2024)

Doctorate research program

My research project concerns the advantages of the digital paradigm for scholarly editing and synoptic editions. After an assessment of the past and state-of-the-art theories and practices in both non-digital and digital philology, I will use the multi-version German tradition of the so-called Alexanderlied as my case study to lay down an editorial methodology for the digital synoptic representation of textual traditions handed down in multiple recensions. I will prepare a synoptic edition of the three versions of the Alexanderlied following the TEI XML standards. The edition will be visualised with the software EVT, which will be customised to implement a module for synoptic editions according to the criteria for text alignment that I will test in my encoding model. The end goals are gaining a better understanding of the complex Alexander corpus and proposing a reusable and extensible paradigm for digital synoptic editions.
