Training with ELTeC dataset in cooperation with CA16204 Distant Reading
Held online from Belgrade in March 2022, This was a three-day training school in “Exploring ELTeC: Use-Cases for Information Extraction and Analysis” organized by COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary History (CA16204), which featured two sessions supported by NEP4DISSENT through Virtual Mobility grants. In this case, the trainers used techniques developed for the NEP4DISSENT participants to work with a DISTANT READING dataset and train literary researchers in linking historical data to open source knowledge bases.
[JOURNAL ISSUE] Thinking Left Dissent
he latest volume of Contradictions responds to academic calls to reevaluate or rethink the history of dissent. Contributors to this volume explore how socialist political concepts took shape within the dissident movement in Central and Eastern Europe before 1989, and they show that the notion of Marxist dissent is not a contradiction in terms. They explore multiple critiques, programs, and visions present in left dissident political thought and philosophy.
[RECORDING] Workshop: Linking your Historical Sources to Open Data
The workshop series ‘Linking your Historical Sources to Open Data’ was organised by the COST Action NEP4DISSENT to help researchers to connect their research data to existing Linked Open Data resources. These connections will ensure that research data remains interoperable and allow for the ingestion of various relevant Linked Open Data resources.
[JOURNAL ISSUE] Left Feminist Theory and Historiography
The texts published in this double issue of Contradictions draw on two major sources of inspiration. The first is contemporary feminist left theory, which thematises the articulation of the capitalist mode of production in liberal democracies, with an emphasis on the contradictions that this articulation creates. A major source of inspiration is historiographic, and part of what this involves is research on the gender regimes of state-socialist societies, their gender culture, and Marxist theory of the period, which took part in in the establishment of these regimes but also criticised them.
