In the Jahrestage project, Frank Fischer (Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities) and Jannik Strötgen (Max Planck Institute for Informatics, previously Institut für Informatik, Universität Heidelberg) are analyzing temporal expressions in large corpora of world literature.

For mining (extracting and normalizing) date expressions, we use a slightly modified version of HeidelTime

Apps & Twitter

Following our Android beta-version app Literjahrtur (still available), we released Tiwoli - Today in world literature - a much nicer and improved app for Android and iOS (thanks to Thomas Bögel for developing the iOS app).

The apps present, for each day of the year, quotations extracted from world literature, in which the respective date occurs. In the meanwhile, English quotations are added so that the apps contain German and English literary content. In addition, we are currently working on including further languages.
