By collaborating with the principal actors of the scientific community (publishers, diffusers, aggregators), this development project aims to better respond to the emerging needs of researchers by rethinking the role of scholars in the digital age. Our goal is twofold. We aim to:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>1) Produce an epistemological model for journals in the digital age.</strong></p>\r\n\r\n<p>Our research will look at the historical mission of scholarly journals, determine how we can respond to this (or these) objective(s), and assess how they have been or are being redefined in the digital age. The challenge relating to the notion of digital transition is not just a technical question: the generalization of free access, for example, is typically the sign of a reassessment of the role and mission of the publisher. By investing, little by little, in the web, the magazine changes the very meaning of the term “publication,” returning to its original meaning: public. How to integrate a journal, a file or even a single article into a digital ecosystem in constant evolution? What should be the editorial tasks today, no longer just considered prior to publication, but once the journal has been published online, in order to join the scholarly communities of the web?</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>2) Propose a new editorial model for scholarly journals in the humanities.</strong></p>\r\n\r\n<p>We will look at producing specifications for the various actors of scholarly publishing (publishers, broadcasters, aggregators). Our partners on this project—especially broadcasters and the Aggregator—have made significant efforts to ensure the integration, sustainability and visibility of journals on the web. This project will have to give them additional resources for the creation of tools and protocols better suited to the needs of researchers and publishers.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Our project is the first to unite a number of French-language digital broadcasters, including the two largest <strong><a href=\"https://www.erudit.org/\">Érudit</a> and <a href =\"https://www.openedition.org/\">OpenEdition</a></strong>, as well as the only aggregator of content in the human sciences, <strong> <a href=\"https://www.huma-num.fr/\">Huma-Num</a></strong>, with a group of scholarly journals ready to engage in experiments to improve their digital transition: <strong> <a href =\"http://revue-etudesfrancaises.umontreal.ca/\">French Studies</a></strong>, <strong><a href=\"http://intermedialites.com/\">Intermedialities</a> </strong>, <strong><a href=\"https://www.erudit.org/fr/revues/memoires/\">Book Memories</a></strong>, <strong> <a href=\"https: //journals.openedition.org/itineraries/\">Itineraries</a></strong>, <strong><a href=\"https://journals.openedition.org/cybergeo/\">Cybergéo</a></strong>, <strong><a href=\"http://phlit.org/press/?page_id=2570\">International Review of photolitterature</a></strong>.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>This partnership is supported by a team of researchers who, with complementary skills, are at the cutting edge of scholarly digital publishing (including <a href=\"http://revue20.org/lequipe/\">five</a> Canada Research Chairs specializing in digital humanities).</p>\r\n\r\n<p>The project will mobilize skills that are both practical (especially in digital publishing) and theoretical (general epistemologies of the digital humanities, but also notions on the production, validation and dissemination of content). It is essential that our thinking converges with the practices of the publishing industry. This rapprochement will help to anchor theoretical reflection within the complex reality of editorial activities.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>For further information on the project, see the website <a href=\"http://revue20.org\">revue20.org</a></p>\r\n<figure>\r\n<img src=\"https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/03/Social_Sciences_and_Humanities_Research_Council_Logo.svg\" alt=\"CRSH\" style=\"width:40.0%\" /><figcaption>CRSH</figcaption>\r\n</figure>\r\n</div>",

The Palatine Anthology is a collection of Greek epigrams whose source dates back to the Hellenistic period (323-30 BC) and which has since had a major influence on literature from the Renaissance to the present day. The Anthology published today (the Loeb edition of 1916, or the Belles Lettres edition of 1927) is in fact the product of additions, of lost compilations (by Constantine Cephalas, by Meleager, by Agathias and many others) and, therefore, of a remodeling of its structure over sixteen centuries of history (from the 6th century BC to the 10th century). The <i>Appendix planudea</i> includes the epigrams that are absent from the Palatine manuscript but present in the Anthology of Planudes (1301), a Byzantine scholar who lived in the 13th and 14th centuries.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>The project of this edition is thus based on four considerations responding to the source corpus:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Historically and genetically, the Anthology is primarily the result of a massive and transecular contribution;</li>\r\n\r\n<li>The content of the Anthology is fundamentally heterogenous (in formal and thematic terms);</li>\r\n\r\n<li>Structurally, this heterogeneity is counterbalanced by a dialogical dimension between the epigrams (through the use of topos), enabling the constitution of reading paths;</li>\r\n\r\n<li>From an anthological perspective, it refuses any closure, presupposing its own enrichment and growth.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<p>\r\nThe project revolves around creating an edition that takes into account these four considerations while still managing to retranscribe anthological intertextuality. It is thereby based on a number of standards of digital scholarly publishing, but also on the principle of a collaborative edition.\r\n</p>\r\n<p>The project plays out between several spaces:\r\n</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>A relational database which is built on the notion of an entity (1 entity = 1 epigram). Each entity is associated with several types of editable information including:\r\n</li>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Greek versions,</li>\r\n<li>translations (in French, English, Italian) that can be aligned with Greek versions,</li>\r\n<li>the scholia,</li>\r\n<li>metadata (author, theme),</li>\r\n<li>the weak links which are associations free of contents by the user.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n<img src=\"https://i.imgur.com/w7hSHpI.png\" />\r\n<li>An API which allows the open database to read and write accessibly with a simple connection to JSON. Unlike XML, which is more rigid in its structure and markup, JSON allows reorganization of data based on multiple interpretations and structures.</li>\r\n<li>Different displays made from the API:</li>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>the <a href=\"https://anthologia.ecrituresnumeriques.ca/home\">Anthologia</a> platform: which is the editable space</li>\r\n<img src=\"https://i.imgur.com/R25kwLQ.png\" />\r\n<li>a <a href=\"https://twitter.com/greekAnthology\">Twitter account</a> that tweets an epigram every day</li>\r\n<img src=\"https://i.imgur.com/e8zxW1p.png\"/>\r\n<li>what we call the <a href=\"http://pop.anthologiegrecque.org/#/accueil\">POP</a> (open platform of imaginary paths) which is a visualization of the Anthologia platform</li>\r\n<img src=\"https://i.imgur.com/NqLFLfh.png\" />\r\n\r\n<ul>\r\n</ul>\r\n\r\n<p>Three criteria are essential for the project’s success:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Restitution of an open anthological structure: the project must allow the user to appropriate the anthological corpus while understanding its intertextual structure.</li>\r\n\r\n<li>Interoperability and standardization: texts and content are described using standard markup systems (TEI), made available on an open database in order to be usable by a wider community of researchers across many platforms;</li>\r\n\r\n<li>Interoperability and standardization: texts and content are described using standard markup systems (TEI), made available on an open database in order to be usable by a wider community of researchers across many platforms;</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n\r\n<p>This project aims to meet several objectives:</p>\r\n<ul>\r\n<li>Euristic: highlighting intertextual relationships between epigrams; allowing the Hellenists to work with the content of the PA in a non-linear way and to evolve through the corpus of coded markers (author, themes and other keywords) directly inspired by the annotations in the margins of the manuscript of the PA.</li>\r\n\r\n<li>Editing and translation: simultaneously providing access to the original Greek text (images of the manuscript), a new French translation and an unprecedented translation of the marginal comments of the PA manuscript (scholies, subtitles, etc.). This translation will reflect the state of recent research relating to the cultural context in which the poems were composed.</li>\r\n\r\n<li>Technical: designing an alterable platform for the development and dissemination of ancient texts; identifying requirements and characteristics for the creation of a platform for critical publishing.</li>\r\n\r\n<li>Philological: renewing the philological approach of the anthology by offering the user a reading and editing space for epigrams.</li>\r\n</ul>\r\n</div>",

The aim of the journal is to offer in-depth scientific analyses capable of deciphering the sociological and political phenomena that characterize the globalized world. The digital dimension of contemporary culture, as well as the appearance of new intellectual networks and new forms of knowledge production and dissemination, are systematically questioned in our articles. To carry out this mission, Sens Public has chosen a transdisciplinary perspective, favouring hybrid approaches, while guaranteeing scholarly rigour. The journal fills a major void in academia by offering, to researchers who work at the junction of several disciplines, a space of expression and diffusion that has, until now, been lacking. This transdisciplinary space is also essential to the study of emerging digital culture, which calls for multidisciplinary thinking.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Since its creation, <i>Sens Public</i> has emerged as a pioneer in the digital publishing world and has become a central actor in contemporary change. Today, with more than a decade of experience, it brings to the table unconventional expertise in the field of digital publishing, allowing it to distinguish itself and offer its authors high-quality support to disseminate their work. In fact, thinking about new forms of knowledge production and dissemination is now among the common themes of our publications. Today, it is no longer purely a question of digital publishing, but also of producing scholarly and epistemological reflection relating to this field.\r\n</p>\r\n</div>\r\n\r\n",

In May 2016, our research lab (Theolinum, a lab for the Canada Research Chair on Digital Textualities) will cross Canada along the Trans-Canada Highway to add our own travel experience to all of these mediations. We ask the question: What is the nature of this space? What does it represent and how do we think of it?</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Today, our first reflex is indeed to search among all of the information available on the web, which includes historical information, images, stories and maps. Thus, this relatively empty physically space (the traditional sense of a map), when experienced both physically by travel and in a mediated way by the web, quickly “fills” with a series of values, symbols and cinematographic references, as well as literary, historical and patriotic narratives. We therefore ask ourselves if it is possible, to borrow from Perec who tried the experiment in Paris, to exhaust all the possibilities relating to the Trans-Canada imaginary, as an entity that exists both geographically and within the collective imaginary thanks to its virtual possibilities. On a more theoretical level, what would this exploration mean? Would it indeed be a form of hyper-representation—an account of the minutest details of what factually exists in this space—or, on the contrary, an activity of reality production?</p>\r\n\r\n<p>To answer these questions, we propose to reveal the Trans-Canada space by questioning it on several levels. On the one hand, we will experience it through a road trip from Montreal to Calgary. We will also, on the other hand, document and retell our journey through a series of digital tools (writing online, photos, videos).</p>\r\n\r\n<p>The hypothesis that we seek to prove is the following: the digital is as much a tool of representation as it is a production of the space in question. It indeed seems to us undeniable that our vision and experience of a territory such as Trans-Canada—as well as our way of organizing it by writing about it and by producing content relating to it—are deeply structured by digital tools and their layouts: that is, the different sources, the interactive maps and all the information, data and documents that we find on the web. In other words, our way of thinking about this space and considering it involves the (often unconscious) mediation of the tools that map it, describe it and narrate its existence by filling it with images, stories and information.</p>\r\n</div>",

Each platform requires the creation of a “profile”: from social networks to online shopping platforms, dating sites, online games, forums, newspapers, etc. On one particularly well-known social network, Facebook, users are required to report to their “friends” by publishing their personal data (date of birth, place of residence, activities, employment, family situation, etc.). On this platform, the Quebeçoise writer Anne Archet nevertheless fills her profile data fields in a disconcerting way: “employment: succubus assistant to Satan”; “Studied: Go girls, three Big Macs girls at Hamburger University,” etc. Similarly, on their Twitter profile, the fictitious writer and Oulipian personality Pharaon Parka describe themselves as “Lurker and puppet, firstly. Leaks remixer.” In 2012 Victoria Welby posted an astonishing service offer on Kijiji, the Canadian classifieds site: she defined herself as a “public writer” and proposed to write erotic emails and other licentious stories for $50 an hour. In these three cases, as in others, individuals clearly aim to subvert the purpose of digital tools. These practices exceed the framework of the conventional user profile and represent only a few examples. They highlight a wider phenomenon of writers who provocatively and playfully appropriate tools and digital forms that occupy functional spaces, in order to transform them into artistic ones. But what are the forms, values and implications of such ownership? The central hypothesis of this project is that these subversions of user profile functions and forms can be considered as literary practices that, by means of playful creativity, subvert the current use of the profile and its social implications to play a political role.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Starting from a French corpus, our project intends to verify this hypothesis with the triple objective of:\r\n<ol>\r\n<li>Demonstrating the poetic function of the profile in online writing practices. Because literary studies have a major role to play as part of an interdisciplinary reflection on the digital, we aim to explore the literariness of certain online writing practices.</li>\r\n<li>Incorporating this profile study into a comparative perspective that includes historical forms of artistic practices, including visual (such as the self-portrait and the silhouette), and especially textual (autobiographical and autofictionnal) models. This is achieved by studying digital culture according to relationships of continuity rather than rupture.</li>\r\n<li>Showing the political function of literature. Literature takes into account the debate on the issue of personal data and the separation of public and private spaces of the web. If literary subversion makes use of an obviously playful function, then this re-appropriation of a formatted device, one especially designed to track users, certainly has considerable political implications.</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n</p>\r\n</div>",

Instead, he pointed out that this concept, which was developed in the 18th century due to concrete needs, particularly economic ones, primarily concerned the then-emerging paper edition. He concluded by saying that the “author” (and in particular the copyright system) was still too important in our culture to be abandoned. However, with the birth and the diffusion of the Web, new models of content production and circulation beg for a re-evaluation of the concept of the author. Controversies on the role of the author as producer of original content have multiplied. We remember, for example, the 2010 controversy triggered by the publication of The Map and the Territory by Michel Houellebecq, in which the author reproduces entire passages from Wikipedia. Collective production systems torpedo the notion of the author as a singular creative entity. As another example, in Italy, a collective of writers has been publishing novels for fifteen years under the pseudonym Wu-Ming, which means “anonymous” in Chinese. Finally, the author as a persona is the subject of a playful mise en scène on the Web, as we see in Québec with the case of Victoria Welby, Pharaon Parka and Les Fourchettes, who subversively exhibit themselves on social media. </p>\r\n<p>It is crucial to analyze these new models in order to understand how new technologies affect the concept of the author.</p>\r\n</div>",

In particular, we focus on the case of the motorway axis connecting Gaspé (Québec) to Miami (Florida), whose mythology seems particularly rich in literary references, given the creative contributions of André Breton (<i>Arcane 17</i>, 1945), Michel Vézina (<i>Asphalt and vodka</i>, 2005), Gabriel Anctil (<i>Sur la 132</i>, 2012), Victor Lévy-Beaulieu (<i>Oh Miami Miami, Miami</i>, 1973), Jaques Poulin (<i>Volkswagen blues</i>, 1984) and even Emile Ollivier (<i>Mother-Solitude</i>, 1996). More recently, travel stories directly published on the web, by Jean Désy or Laure Morali for example, perpetuate this history of literary exploration of North American territory. This also represents an exploration of the potential of new digital tools and the reconfiguration of the space that they occupy.\r\n</p>\r\n\r\n<p>If the travel imaginary has been conceived of through many disciplines—in arts, literature, humanities and social sciences—the new links that have developed over the last twenty years, between geographical space and digital space, is a field of knowledge yet to be deciphered. At the crossroads of thinking on literature and digital technology, our project intends to contribute to this decipherment, while also working on the renewal of studies on travel narrative. More precisely, we elaborate a <em>new practical approach to thinking about space</em>. To this end, the creative research approach is essential because it demonstrates how, through theory and practice, new thinking on space emerges: today, more than ever, it is indeed necessary to be an actor in the construction of space, even though digital mediation has gradually imposed its own parameters on both the physical and mental the cartography of the world./p>\r\n\r\n<p>As the geographer David Harvey affirms, “the geographical imagination is far too pervasive and important to intellectual life to be left alone to geographers.” Thus, from the 1960s, human and social sciences were marked by the emergence of a spatial paradigm that encouraged, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the exploitation of spatial concepts to think about the construction of knowledge. This turning point will have two major consequences: it will mark an epistemological renewal in many disciplines—sociology, history, literature—while encouraging a new understanding of space, henceforth freed from a purely geographical approach. For space, this “imaginary body,” as Paul Valéry called it, is indeed a complex construction whose origin is multiple, being at once physical, symbolic, social and political, but also literary. In this respect, Valéry lends himself to reading and analyzing like a text, and even more so an intertext. Since Ulysses’s journeys told by Homer to <em>The attempt of exhaustion of a Parisian place</em> by Georges Perec, literature and in particular travel stories have always proposed a mental map of the world that is simultaneously poetic, romantic and intertextual. Our project aims to highlight this tension relating to the spatial imaginary and to participate in its reinvention, even though the concept of space seems to mutate and to (re)form as a result of the digital and of its institutional bodies (Google Map, Google Street view, etc.).</p>\r\n\r\n<p>It is, indeed, a completely different mental cartography that digital technologies, and in particular the web, are drawing today. Their almost exhaustive grid of the world has upset the way we understand and inhabit space. Recently, the daily emergence of immersive cartographic tools, combined with photographic or satellite imagery, at least superficially ensures a mastery of the world, a phenomenon which seems more important than ever; the generalization of the geolocation process suggests that it has become impossible to get lost. And yet in return, this kind of conduct entails certain drifts as relates to monitoring and controlling individuals. In this respect, the influence that digital tools have on both space and our way of living has become a major issue for thinking about the digital sphere. Do we still need to travel, now that everything seems accessible from our screen? There is indeed almost no space that is not already rendered accessible through the web. Google Maps even offers treks in the manner of a travel agency, combining themes with digitized landscapes; Churchill, Canada, is devoted to polar bears. . . As we can see, this “mapping” is far from neutral and conveys a series of myths associated with the places it represents. In fact, as some point out, we all run the risk of suffering from the layout of the space offered by these new devices and the large multinationals of the web who have shaped them.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>In these conditions, is it still possible to remain protagonists, producing the space in which we live? Can literature and its travel stories, themselves influenced by new media, still be a tool used to create the spatial imaginary, allowing us to reclaim places and territories that are apparently dispossessed of any literary value by the information giants? How to write the road trip today?</p>\r\n</div>",
