In honour of Christian-Emil Smith Ore

Christian-Emil Smith Ore, Associate Professor at the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies (ILN) at the University of Oslo, turned sixty in 2017. Ore has been a central force behind the digitisation of scholarly collections at Norwegian universities for close to thirty years, with a special focus on the humanities. 

This Festschrift gives an image of Ore’s influence in the landscape of research in the humanities based on digital methods. Ore and his team have engaged in this area, providing new types of access and new forms of cross disciplinary connections through the exploration of new methodologies, which in turn has caused change in the factual basis for humanist research.

Ore’s research interests include digitial humanities, cultural heritage informatics, lexicography, African languages, text encoding, the scholarly treatment of text, concept modelling, ontologies and information architecture. This volume is rich and broad in content, and no sense of the word lightweight fits to describe it.

The book includes twelve articles in three sections: digital humanities, African lexicography, and Norwegian lexicography and language documentation. An important early article by Ore is included, as well as a bibliography of Christian-Emil Smith Ore’s printed work.
