The methods and techniques of Digital Humanities are increasingly reshaping the manner in which established areas of research are carried out. Use of digital applications and electronic equipments is ushering a new era for the study of manuscripts as well. These rapid advancements necessitate a careful and thorough assessment of the desirability, as also possible concerns, of employing them and call for a judicious integration of the new techniques in the workflow of the study and editing of manuscripts. The main aim of this research group is to review and revise the study of South and Southeast Asian manuscripts in the context of the fast evolving discipline of Digital Humanities.


デジタル人文学の手法と技術は、既存の研究分野のやり方をますます変えている。デジタルアプリケーションや電子機器の使用は、写本研究にも画期をもたらしている。このような急速な進歩は、それらを採用する際の望ましいありかたと起こりうる問題点を慎重かつ徹底的に評価することを求め、写本に対する研究と校訂の作業工程に新しい技術を賢明に統合することを求める。ハイデルベルク大学の南アジアの宗教・文化史学科(古典インド学科)と大谷大学真宗総合研究所デジタル・アーカイブ資料室による共同研究会の主な目的は、デジタル人文学の急速な発展の中で、南アジア・東南アジアの写本の研究を見直し、再構築することである。
