Pedrolo Digital

This project sets out to construct a digital literary-historical map of 20th Century Catalan writer Manuel de Pedrolo’s production that feeds from his complete digital corpus. This corpus is compiled and XML-tagged through a groupsourcing initiative involving Catalan language students around the globe –ranging from secondary to postgraduate level– who will OCR, correct and tag the words referring to space in the text. This collaborative and pedagogic approach also aims to empower the students as actors of this map, by incorporating their own spatial identity into the project.
