60 Years of Digital Humanities, Video with Prof. Paul Tombeur

Now online: the video with Prof. Paul Tombeur, giving an overview of the development of Digital Humanities from the start of his academic career until now (1960-2020).

The presentation of Prof. Tombeur was recorded at the ReIReS DH Course organized by Brepols, on December 10th 2020.

Grandfather of Digital Humanities

Professor Paul Tombeur (UCLouvain), until recently director of the Centre ‘Traditio Litterarum Occidentalium’ (CTLO), can be rightly called the grandfather of Digital Humanities, having introduced computer-aided  research in the humanities and more particularly in the field of Latin literature as early as the 1970s.

Database of Latin Text and Lexicographical Material

For about 35 years, the CTLO has continuously invested in what is the largest database of Latin text and lexicographical material, applying rigorous scholarly criteria and consistency to the whole of its corpus. The information stored in its numerous databases serves editors of Latin texts and visitors to the Corpus Christianorum Library & Knowledge Centre.

The video is in French.
