5th IEL International Seminar on Epic Studies and Oral Tradition Research

November 28, 2013

I had the pleasure this morning of delivering a paper at the 5th International Seminar on Epic Studies and Oral Tradition Research, organized by the Chinese Academy of Social Science's Institute of Ethnic Literature, This year's seminar explores the challenges associated with the use of databases and digital corpora in research on oral traditions. My paper, "Digitizing the Milman Parry Collection of Oral Literature: Achievements, Challenges, Aspirations," presented recent digitization work in the Milman Parry Collection and outlined some goals for the future.
