Oral History and Linguistic Analysis. A Study in Digital and Contemporary European History

The article presents a workflow for combining oral history and language technology, and for evaluating this combination.

The article presents a workflow for combining oral history and language technology, and for evaluating this combination in the context of European contemporary history research and teaching. Two experiments are devised to analyse how interdisciplinary connections between history and linguistics are built and evaluated within a digital framework. The longer term objective of this type of enquiry is to draw an “inventory” of strengths and weaknesses of language technology applied to the study of history.
