The SSHOC’n Tell Challenge was a hackathon run parallel to SSHOC’s final conference, Advancing SSH Research with SSHOCingly good and sustainable resources, with the aim of getting users to test out SSHOC tools and create compelling real-user stories. The challenge resulted in a total of 6 user stories which have been published on Zenodo and on the SSHOC website.


Enlarge the scope toward European puppet plays texts!

I’m a data engineer working at the ERC PuppetPlays project (GA835193) directed by Didier Plassard, professor in Drama and Performance studies, and hosted by the University Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3 (France). The project aims to reappraise Western European Repertoires for Puppet and Marionette Theatres and bring into the light this almost invisible repertoire. Doing this, PuppetPlays has the ambition to gather a 2000 references dataset describing texts for puppets in western Europe from 1600 till now. 300 of those 2000 references will also be available to read in full text encoded in TEI. Everything is open source. As we are currently discovering that considering the puppet repertoires in the history of dramatic literature can thus lead to certain revisions of the field and offers a new approach to study classical texts.
