*CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

**Text Reuse Workshop at DH Estonia 2015* *21 October 2015*

Hosted by the Estonian Literary Museum, Tartu, Estonia. Organised by: Dr. Marco Büchler, Emily Franzini, Greta Franzini and Maria Moritz (eTRAP Early Career Research Group).

The /Conference on translingual and transcultural digital humanities /[http://www.folklore.ee/dh/en/events/dh_conference_estonia_2015/]//is hosting a one-day Text Reuse Workshop for participants interested in learning more about semi-automatic detection of text reuse in digital textual corpora. The workshop builds on eTRAP’s research activities, some of which deploy Marco Büchler’s TRACER tool. TRACER is a suite of algorithms aimed at investigating text reuse in multifarious corpora, be those prose, poetry, in Arabic or Estonian. TRACER provides researchers with statistical information about the texts under investigation and its integrated reuse visualiser, the TRACER Debugger, displays occurrences of text reuse in a more readable format for further study. This workshop seeks to teach participants to independently understand, use and run the TRACER tool on their own data-sets.

*Eligibility & requirements* If you're interested in exploring text reuse between two or multiple texts (in the same language) and would like to learn how to do it semi-automatically, this workshop is for you. In order to provide everyone with adequate (technical) assistance, the workshop can only accommodate 10 participants. To apply to the workshop, please send your CV and motivation letter to *etrap-applications*(at)*gcdh*(dot)*de* *by* *September 2015*.
