On 23.10.2020 the eHumanities Center CRETA entered a new phase with the foundation of an association (a Verein according to German law). On the one hand, the founding of the association takes into account the fact that scientists beyond Stuttgart are now working on similar goals and CRETA is connected to them in many ways, for example through joint projects. On the other hand, some CRETA members are now or soon will no longer be working at Stuttgart University. CRETA is thus being transformed into a decentralized center, which will in future operate as an association. The association will then continue many of the activities — coaching, workshops, hackatorials.
The new address (and website) of the association is www.cretaverein.de.
The proposal for an extension of CRETA was recently accepted. From January, the Center for Reflected Text Analytics will be funded for 2 more years by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
CRETA invites to a public workshop with external guest speakers (talks will be in English).

Titled Automatic Emotion Detection for Quantitative Literary Studies — A case study based on Franz Kafka’s “Das Schloss” und “Amerika”, Roman Klinger, Surayya Samat Suliya and Nils Reiter present a dictionary for emotions and first experiments for the automatic detection of emotions in literary texts. The paper can be downloaded here, the dictionaries as well as the code is publicly available here.
In the paper with the title Authorship attribution of Mediaeval German Text: style and contents in Apollonius von Tyrland, Sarah Schulz, Jonas Kuhn and Nils Reiter present stylometric works on the authorship of Heinrich von Neustadt’s Apollonius von Tyrland. The paper is available here.
While digitisation efforts are still under way, the workshop From Digitization to Knowledge (of which Nils Reiter is one of the organisers) focuses on the question of what to do with the digitised artefacts, as digitised artefacts are not supposed to be the end result of our efforts. Instead, we are interested in analysing, reading or understanding them.
The workshop takes place on July 11th, starting at 9:30 am.
