On November 4th 2022, the first full-day workshop on ALMA took place at the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities.
Maria Selig, Sabine Tittel, Elton Prifti, Wolfgang Schweickard, and Frankwalt Möhren laid the foundation for the conception and structure of the bibliography ALMABibl. ALMABibl will list and critically comment on the primary literature (text sources), secondary literature and tertiary sources (based on primary and secondary literature and–in turn–on other dictionaries) used for the research carries out by the ALMA project. The bibliography will integrate already existing data of the bibliographical supplements of the dictionaries LEI, DOM, and DEAF with new literature.
ALMABibl will be structured according to the DEAFBibl model. This means that not only bibliographical information such as author, editor, publisher etc. will be provided. Rather, text titles (including their variants) will be given, the manuscripts of the textual tradition will be listed, dated and their language variety localized, the medieval authors will be named, and the philological criteria of the text editions critically evaluated. The bibliography will define the literary genres of the primary texts as well as their domains (the focus being on the technical language on law and medicine).
The aim of ALMABibl is to provide not only the key to the literature used by ALMA, but also to create a stand-alone research tool for the scientific community.
Currently there are no open positions.
