2. Abstract (cf. application, February 23, 2011)

“No Problem Has a Solution: A Digital Archive of the Book of Disquiet” aims to produce a hypermedia digital edition and archive dedicated to the Livro do Desassossego (LdoD), by Bernardo Soares/Fernando Pessoa. This archive will aggregate digital facsimiles of all the documentary material of LdoD, diplomatic transcriptions of these materials, a concordance table of the major Portuguese editions published between 1982 and 2010, and also tools for search and textual analysis. Our goal is to combine a genetic edition with a social edition of LdoD, showing LdoD both as a network of potential authorial intentions and as a conjectural construction of its successive editors. This digital edition and archive will attempt to represent the dynamics of the acts of writing and editing in the production and reproduction of LdoD. The three main objectives of the digital edition/archive are:

(a) representing the dynamics of the acts of writing and editing in the production of LdoD;

(b) exploring the potential of digital media to recreate the history of that dynamic; and

(c) creating a space for virtualizing the LdoD that encourages new dynamics of reading, editing, and researching in the encounter between readers and this corpus of fragmentary written materials.

The second component of the project, “No Problem Has a Solution: Concepts and Forms of Writing and the Book in the Modernist Imagination”, aims to analyse historical and theoretical concepts and forms of writing and the book in modernist practices. It will take as its starting point ideas about writing and the book in the LdoD itself. The possibility and impossibility of the book will be examined in modernist discourses and practices, and throughout the twentieth century, within a transcultural and translinguistic context. On the one hand, we will analyse works that take the typographic materiality of the book as the horizon for acts of writing; on the other hand, we will analyse works in which writing calls into question the discursive and conceptual limits of the book, focusing instead on an open processuality of the act of writing which results in dispersal, fragmentariness, and incompleteness. This theorization has three main objectives:

(a) clarifying the relationship between writing and the book in Fernando Pessoa’s literary production;

(b) contextualizing this self-reflective consciousness of writing and of bibliographic processes in modernist and 20th-century literature; and

(c) developing a research model of literary practices focused on the verbal, technical and social materialities of language and communication.

The main goals of this project are:

  1. to create a new open-access electronic resource according to the best international standards, which establishes this archive and the research produced as a reference source for disseminating knowledge about a major work in the corpus of writings by Fernando Pessoa and in European literary modernism;
  2. to make a new critical use of the digital resources of the National Library of Portugal, analysing for other purposes the materials contained in Pessoa’s digital repository, including facsimiles in .tif and .jpg formats of manuscripts, typescripts, and printed material;
  3. to test a set of procedures for representing and structuring text in digital format, according to international standards for electronic text encoding (TEI-P5) and through the development of specific markup for the selected documents;
  4. to develop a pilot-project for a digital edition and archive through the construction of a textual database and an interactive interface that allows for dynamic exploration of the edited and archived materials;
  5. to create a digital archive that incorporates in its design and structure the knowledge accumulated by similar international projects during the past fifteen years, in a robust and updated informational model of textual editing;
  6. to explore the potential of digital materiality to represent the LdoD as a variable and potential configuration of writing and the book as device, both from a genetic and a social editing perspective;
  7. to think about the remodelling of the book as a device for representation, and to analyse the relationship between the conceptual and material dimensions of the book and of writing in modernist literary practices;
  8. to think about the conceptualisation of writing as a tool for researching language and human subjectivity, an approach that may be said to define many 20th-century literary practices;
  9. to establish an area of research focused in the materialities of literature, which could develop into future research projects, theses and in advanced teaching programmes;
  10. to enhance digital scholarship as a way of preserving our literary heritage and to develop digital platforms and tools as spaces for knowledge production and for establishing new research communities.


3. General Self-Assessment of Project Outcomes

The project has achieved all the specific goals outlined above, both at the technical and theoretical levels. In fact the resulting dynamic digital archive (“Arquivo LdoD”, http://ldod.uc.pt, forthcoming as an open web resource in 2016) has expanded – conceptually and technically – far beyond our initial model.  The resulting model has been very well reviewed by all the relevant expert communities who have highlighted its innovative contribution to the field of digital scholarship and literary studies. After three and a half years of intense work we may say that our technical and conceptual model for a ´dynamic digital archive´, which brings together representational and simulative functions, is a major breakthrough for textual practices in the digital age.

The ten goals listed in the initial abstract (see above) have been achieved, and we believe the archive has sufficient potential for another stage of development of its scholarly and dynamic levels.

3.1. What have been the major achievements of this project?

a) XML TEI encoding of genetic transcriptions of Fernando Pessoa´s manuscripts and typescripts for the Book of Disquiet, as well as XML TEI encoding of four critical editions (Jacinto do Prado Coelho 1982; Teresa Sobral Cunha 2008; Richard Zenith 2012; and Jerónimo Pizarro 2010). This amounts to a total of c. 3000 texts. All variations have been marked up. This granular encoding has enabled us to automate comparisons between any 2, 3, 4 or 5 versions of any given fragment, both at the micro-scale of textual form, and at the macro-scale of bibliographic structure.

b) programming of the functionalities related to the scholarly level of the archive, and programming of the functionalities related to the virtual editing component of the user-generated content of the archive.

c) construction of the ´LdoD Archive´, which is currently in its final stages of revision, testing, and validation. Online publication is scheduled for the first semester of 2016, in the URL http://ldod.uc.pt/

d) in the period 2012-2015, members of the project team have presented more than 50 papers related to theoretical and technical aspects of ongoing research, at national and international conferences. Presentations were made to all the major relevant communities of experts (TEI consortium; collaborative computing; textual studies; digital humanities; and Pessoa scholars) in research centers and universities in the following countries: Portugal, USA, UK, Brazil, Spain, France, Italy, Cyprus, Colombia, Sweden, and Australia. These include both peer-reviewed proposals and invitations of team members as guest speakers.

e) articles have been published (or are forthcoming) in leading journals across the various fields implied by this project: Literary and Linguistic Computing; Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative; Digital Humanities Quarterly; Textual Cultures; Variants; Gramma; Colóquio Letras; Pessoa Plural.

3.2. How can we build upon the results of the current project?

a) We can expand the digital infrastructure of the ´LdoD Archive´, taking advantage of the textual encoding and programming already achieved, of the documentary survey related to the Book of Disquiet and also of usability testing. We can expand and explore the dynamic functionalities, produce additional content, and foster specific uses of the ´LdoD Archive´. This set of three goals will allow us to further develop methodologies for Digital Humanities, combining the fields of literary studies and computer science. It will also enable us to design and implement knowledge transfer strategies that will make the archive a useful tool for learning about the Book of Disquiet and about literary experience in general.

b) We can integrate documentation related to the critical reception of the Book of Disquiet into the ´LdoD Archive´, encoding and representing the major book reviews of the various editions, as well as the most significant critical essays. In this TEI-XML encoding all references to passages or specific fragments of the Book of Disquiet can be marked up for further analysis and automatic display. Knowledge management tools can be developed for this integration of the critical reception.

c) Out of the four functions planned in the model (Portela & Silva 2014), only three have been completed (book-function, reader-function, and editor-function). The author-function has not yet been designed and implemented. Building upon the current archive would enable us to develop this functionality, creating a space for virtualizing the Book of Disquiet that allows forms of collaborative writing, both by using text writing and editing tools, and by the use of automatic text generation and other electronic literature procedures. The notion of a dynamic archive as a simulation of literary experience (Portela & Silva 2015a) will then have been completely tested and realized.

d) The project tested and surveyed different types of user, in order to identify specific uses of the ´LdoD Archive´. The technical component of the identified problems has been solved through a design of the GUI that increases the readability and understanding of the complex data model that constitutes the ´LdoD Archive´. A further goal, through actions of dissemination and training of specific target audiences, is to develop the use of the archive in different contexts, whether for research or teaching purposes. It is particularly important to encourage the formation of virtual communities of users in secondary education (12th grade) and at the university level.

The research project culminated in a new model for a digital archive, which brought collaborative computing techniques into the universe of critical editing and reading in digital media. Aware that we need to redesign digital literary spaces and that digital archives are under-utilized, the outcomes of the current project could be further developed through (1) the inclusion of the critical reception and its treatment according to knowledge management processes, (2) the expansion of the infrastructure for the dynamic component of the model to include the author-function, and (3) the nurturing of virtual communities that appropriate the ´LdoD Archive´ in their research and teaching practices.



4. Retrospective Narrative

4.1. Task 1

Our initial task was the survey of authorial and editorial sources and materials, followed by digitization and transcription of all the primary materials to be included in the archive. In addition to the digital files of autograph materials of the Book of Disquiet, which were provided by the National Library of Portugal as a participating institution in this project, we produced alphanumeric transcriptions of all the editions of LdoD (Coelho 1982; Cunha 2008 [1990-91]; Zenith 2012[1998]; and Pizarro 2010). We have also surveyed the main critical literature about the Book of Disquiet for future inclusion in the Archive. This task took approximately one year and enabled us to collect in digital format (as image and text files) all the primary materials that will become part of the archive’s scholarly level. This task was coordinated by Manuel Portela. Research fellow Diego Giménez spent part of his time on the survey and transcription of the materials.

4.2. Task 2

The second task, which began in early 2013, was the definition of the XML schema for electronic markup according to the TEI P5 standard (http://www.tei-c.org/Guidelines/P5/). This schema which enabled us to provide a model for the TEI-header and TEI-body for encoding the texts from the Book of Disquiet was developed after a careful editorial analysis of the collected and transcribed corpus. This analysis resulted in a formal description of the structure and properties of the various digital objects (DTD) to be included the archive. This document type definition included a critical apparatus that enabled us to tag all the genetic and editorial layers of the documents, thus making them available for machine-reading. The aim of the encoding of the collected, digitized and transcribed materials in task 1, was to develop a sufficiently granular level of description capable of sustaining all both the static and dynamic features of the archive. Our analysis and modeling of the documents resulted in markup tags and metadata that were critically meaningful for the various functions of search, aggregation, textual analysis and interaction with the digital objects that constitute the database. This task was coordinated by Manuel Portela and António Rito Silva. The research fellows Diego Giménez and Tiago Santos spent most of their time on textual encoding.

4.3. Task 3

The third major task involved the definition of a theoretical framework for thinking about writing and the book in relation to the new technological conditions of digital media. This reflection upon their specific nature and materiality took the Livro do Desassossego and the forms and practices of modernism as its starting point. From the relevant international research and from case studies that can be related to Pessoa’s fragmentary project (Emily Dickinson, Karl Kraus, Robert Musil), we have started to develop an articulation between the scene of writing and the codes of the book. With this approach we were be able to test theoretical models for analysis of the verbal, technical, and social materialities of literature. We were also able to bring a conceptualization of the writing process as material experimentation with the conditions of production of subjectivity and meaning into the archive itself by extending the virtual model of the Book of Disquiet to include not only the virtual editing functions but also the virtual writing functions. This task resulted in a set of original essays published in various journals and conference proceedings (and which will also be made available within the database itself), in the organization of one colloquium on Pessoa (2012) and one international conference on digital literary studies (2015), and in the publication of two special issues of MATLIT (1.1, 2013; 2.1, 2014). This task was coordinated by Osvaldo Manuel Silvestre, and included contributions by Abel Barros Baptista, António Sousa Ribeiro, Pedro Serra, Paulo Silva Pereira, Ricardo Namora, Samuel Teixeira, and Manuel Portela.

4.4. Task 4

This task includes constructing the database, formalizing the functionalities for the virtual manipulation of the Book of Disquiet, and designing the archive's interface. The editorial sophistication and technical robustness of database, interface and collaborative manipulation were tested according to standard theoretical models and according to the various uses and functionalities defined for the archive. Particular attention was paid to the cognitive orientation provided for users and to the ergonomics of the website interface design. We achieved a smooth integration of all the functions, both by adapting existing software tools (as was the case with open-source code for annotation, visualization, and machine-learning, for instance), and by developing code that responded to the specific requirements established during research. A data model was developed early on to support the programming and a prototype of the archive, designed by António Rito Silva, began running experimentally during first semester of the second year of the project. This prototype was shown several times at various conferences in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Besides peer-review process, we also conducted usability tests in September 2014. These tests involved four types of users (lay users; students; teachers; and experts) and allowed us to redesign several features of the interface and restructure our first draft of the guided tour of the archive in ways that make it easier to fully understand its dynamic affordances. This task was coordinated by António Rito Silva. Research fellow Luís Lucas Pereira spent most of his time on assisting in the conceptualization and programming of the virtual editing functionalities, and in developing the JavaScript code for the virtual editing interface.

4.5. Task 5

The project team was particularly successful in the discussion of work in progress and final results at national and international conferences, as testified by the list of presented papers below. Additionally, project members received several invitations to present their findings in local and international symposia (University of Rome, University of Grenoble, University of Salamanca), but also in digital humanities centers (University of Gothenburg, University of California). We have also organized a 20-hour intensive summer workshop (“TEI-XML: An Introductory Workshop”, July 15-18, 2014) based on the text encoding initiative guidelines. A certain amount of dissemination through the media by means of press releases, interviews, and public presentations in non-academic contexts has also taken place (please see this link for a selection of items: https://projetoldod.wordpress.com/imprensa/ ). However, the final stage of public dissemination (for which we have planned an official launch of the LdoD Archive on a date to be announced) is still pending. We are at the last stages of a detailed revision of the encoding and of the integration of all the different branches of programming. Only after the web publication of the Archive, scheduled for early 2016, will we be able to conclude a broad public dissemination of the results of the project. We hope to interest the national media (newspapers, radio, and television) and we also expect to contribute, by means of targeted workshops in schools and universities, to foster the creation of a learning and research community of users of the Archive, particularly in the Portuguese-speaking world. This task has been coordinated by Manuel Portela and all members of the project have been involved.



5. Project Output: Highlights

A detailed list of project output (conference papers, publications, events organized by the project, computer applications, theses, dissemination, and consultation) is provided below. In this section, I will highlight only our major achievements.

5.1. Arquivo LdoD | Archive LdoD (http://ldod.uc.pt)

The LdoD Archive, which is still in its final stages of revision prior to publication on the web in the first half of 2016, is the single most important output of the research. It is a world-level digital archive that integrates several state-of-the-art tools in digital humanities (with contributions from the fields of text encoding, text analysis, data mining, machine learning, electronic literature, visualization, and social media) in a participatory environment for research, learning, and creativity. Final reviews by project consultants have stressed both its innovative approach to digital editing and its future relevance for different communities of scholars.

5.2. Participation in major international conferences

Members of the project team have presented research results during the various stages to several communities of experts. This means that our work has been closely reviewed by textual scholars, scholars of Pessoa and of the Book of Disquiet, digital humanists, computer engineers, TEI experts, and literary theorists. I would like to highlight the following conferences and symposia: “ECSCW 2013: European  Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work” (University of Cyprus, September 21-25, 2013); “Chercher le texte: Locating the Text in Electronic Literature” (University of Paris 8, September 24-27, 2013); “The Linked TEI: Text Encoding in the Web” (TEI Consortium/DIGILAB, Università La Sapienza, Roma, October 2-5, 2013); “Variance in Textual Scholarship and Genetic Criticism/La variance en philologie et dans la critique génétique” (10th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship, ITEM –  Institut des textes et manuscrits modernes, École Normale Supérieure, Paris, November 22-24, 2013); “Print, Produce, Publish” (College Book Art Association,  Utah University,  Salt Lake City, January 2-4, 2014); “O Dia Triunfal de Fernando Pessoa” (Projeto Estranhar Pessoa, Laboratório de Estudos Literários Avançados (ELAB), Rede de Filosofia e Literatura, Instituto de Filosofia da Linguagem (IFL) and Programa em Teoria da Literatura, Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon, March 6-8, 2014); “Decoding the Encoded” (TEI Consortium/Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, October 22-24 2014); “Edizioni Critiche Digitali: Edizioni a Confronto / Digital Critical Editions: Comparing Editions” (Dipartimento di Studi Greco-Latini, Italiani, Scenico-Musicali, Università la Sapienza, Roma, March 27, 2015); and “Textual Machines” (University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia, April 17-18, 2015).

5.3. Project events

Besides regular internal seminars and open seminars given by our consultants, a major international conference was organized by the project with collaboration from the FCT PhD Programme in Materialities of Literature. This conference, under the general theme “Digital Literary Studies”, took place on May 14-15. It attracted a significant number of researchers (17 countries and 42 institutions were represented), and provided a forum for discussing new methods and objects for literary studies and also for sharing ideas about ongoing projects in different parts of Europe, North and South America. A double issue of the journal MATLIT is forthcoming in 2016 with selected articles based on the conference papers. This was the first conference held in Portugal on this subject and it contributed significantly for bringing the research results of our work to the attention of other scholars in the field.

5.4. Publications

Two issues of the journal MATLIT (issue 1.1, 2013, “Estranging Pessoa with the Materialities of Literature”, edited by Manuel Portela and Osvaldo Manuel Silvestre; and Issue 2.1, 2014, “Book and Materiality” edited by Abel Barros Baptista), one book on the history of the editions of the Book of Disquiet by Diego Diménez (currently its last stages of revision, Modos do Desassossego, to be published by Angelus Novus, forthcoming), and several articles in major journals (including Literary and Linguistic Computing/Digital Scholarship in the Humanites, Digital Humanities Quarterly, Textual Cultures, Variants, Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative, Gramma, and Colóquio Letras).

5.5. Theses and training of young researchers

Diego Giménez wrote a PhD thesis based on his work for the Archive “Fernando Pessoa: Irrealidad, Escritura y Desasosiego“ (Barcelona University, December 12, 2014), and he is now revising a book manuscript on the editorial history of the Book of Disquiet, for which he received an additional grant from the Gulbenkian Foundation (January-October 2015). André Santos obtained his MA degree in Computer Science with a thesis based on his programming of the search and recommendation functions in the Archive - “Arquivo Digital do Livro do Desassossego: Pesquisa e Recomendacões” (October 28, 2015). Both theses bear witness to the interdisciplinary relations that have been nurtured within this project and also to its impact on training a new generation of researchers. Since all open activities of the project for the past three and half years have also been included within the activities of the FCT PhD Programme in Materialities of Literature, I would like to point out the fact that this project has also been used as a training and research environment for the PhD candidates in our Programme. For instance, research seminars and lectures by our consultants to the project were also aimed at the PhD Programme.

5.6. Contribution of institutional collaboration to the research process

The collaboration of INESC-ID in Lisbon, through the participation of António Rito Silva, has guaranteed the soundness of our computational solutions. Our close interaction throughout the entire duration of the project is reflected in several co-authored conference papers and journal articles. This collaboration was further reflected in his supervision of one research fellow of the project team; in his supervision of two MA theses by IST students in computer science whose research questions were directly related to the technical implementation of the Archive; and in his development of dedicated software that was able to capture the conceptualization of a radial and changing archive. This successful collaboration between INESC-ID and CLP was important for fostering a strong interdisciplinary approach to the problem of textual editing in digital media, resulting in a combination of software architecture and textual editing rationale that go beyond established practices and theories. The collaboration of the National Library of Portugal in providing access to all the necessary digital facsimiles was invaluable for the project. The Centre for Portuguese Literature, the host institution of the project, has also committed its continuing support for specific missions and resources that could not be allocated within the project budget. During the process of development we also received several invitations from other research centers and research projects, in Portugal and abroad, to share the results of our work. We could thus add a significant number of missions for participating in scientific meetings that have been sponsored through this network of relations involving researchers on Pessoa, on textual encoding and on digital editing.



6. Deviations from the Research Plan

6.1. Deviations in the timeline

a) Extension of the end of the project from February 28, 2015 to September 30, 2015:

The encoding and programming challenges were the main reasons for asking for a six month extension of the project's end date from February 28, 2015 to August 31, 2015. Authorization for an additional month (end date: September 30, 2015) was required for reasons of paperwork related to the dates of the last eligible expenses of the project.

Several tasks have proved more challenging than we anticipated. The extremely detailed schema that we defined for encoding variations across all textual witnesses required many intensive working hours. Two research fellows spent most of their time encoding the texts (a two-year contract in one case, and one-and-a-half-year contract in the second case). The encoding and revision of the XML files has taken us more than 5500 hours of work, including 800 hours of my own work for that specific task as principal investigator.  The programming of the virtual functions and the design of the interface for the virtual editions was also a challenging task.

Thus the additional amount of time was a consequence of the fact that the research process enabled us to develop a more complex archive model than what could have been described in the original proposal in 2011. The final data model only became clearly defined in early 2013. As explained above, the extremely granular encoding and the extension of the dynamic functionalities have resulted in a better digital artifact, one with greater potential to be used as a tool for literary analysis and capable of further development in its teaching and research affordances. Considering the final scale of the LdoD Archive the prospective timeline in our initial application was too optimistic.

6.2. Deviations in human resources

The original research plan included two research fellows with MA qualification to be hired for 24 months each. We had no problem in finding holders of MA qualification in literary studies or related areas applying for the research fellow grant, but we had difficulties in hiring an MA graduate in computer science (in one instance the call closed without any eligible application). For this reason we decided to change the hiring qualification for the second fellow to BA. We also decided to hire two research fellows: one of them for 12+6 months, to work on the encoding, and the second one for 12 months, to work on the programming of the virtual interface. Although the funding allocated under this heading did not change, the internal distribution of tasks had to be adapted to better serve the encoding and programming needs of the project. In the end, we awarded three research grants: the first one for 24 months (Diego Giménez); the second, for 18 months (Tiago Santos); and the third, for 12 months (Luís Lucas Pereira). This group of young researchers not only offered the ideal combination of skills (literary studies, multimedia design, and computer science), but they were extremely dedicated and contributed very significantly to the outputs of the project, including several publications. Their contribution to our major output, the LdoD Archive, has to be highlighted.

6.3. Deviations in the budget

There were no significant deviations from the approved budget. Two minor changes to the proposed budget have been made and authorized by FCT:

a) In April 2013 we requested a reallocation of funding (1200,00€) from the item ´missions´ to the item ´equipment´. This request was justified by our need to provide a computer workstation for the new researcher to be hired – this equipment was essential for pursuing Task 4 of the project (authorization April 10, 2013).

b) In July 2015 we requested an authorization for the transfer of a small existing balance in "human resources" to the heading "purchase of services". This amount (615,00€) was used for hiring a video professional to make short video recordings of interviews with the editors.  According to the original plan of dissemination of project results, and as a strategy of communication to a wider audience, we decided to include brief video testimonials from the editors of Book of Disquiet and my own statement on the concepts that justify the functionalities programmed into the Archive. These video statements of 5 minutes each will be published in the platform and their goal is to communicate more simply and directly, to future users, the nature of the different versions of the work and the features created in the archive for their representation and manipulation. Registration and editing of the videos required a deviation from the original budget: an authorization was given for the transfer of a small existing balance in “human resources” to the heading “purchase of services” (authorization August 28, 2015).

10. Concluding Remarks

As mentioned in the self-assessment, this research project has achieved all of its goals. Minor changes have been made to the research plan in order to respond to needs that arose during the process of conceptual and technical development, but all tasks proceeded according to plan. The output is, for several indicators, higher than originally planned. The international profile of the output, in both conference papers and journal articles, is particularly significant. I would like to call the attention of the reviewer of this report for the fact that the digital infrastructure that we have developed for the LdoD Archive has potential for development, and we hope to continue this development over the coming years. As a cross-disciplinary project that brought together humanities and computing, this was the first of its kind at the Centre for Portuguese Literature at the University of Coimbra. As such, it has given a significant initial contribution to the fulfilment of one of its strategic research priorities for the period 2014-2020 – that of thinking about the digital medium as a methodological, theoretical and technical environment for the reinvention of literary studies. This is one of most innovative projects in the field of digital literary studies ever attempted in Portugal, and, on behalf of the project team, I would like to say that I am grateful to the FCT for supporting this research. We may have not found the solution for the problem of editing a literary archive of fragmentary works, but we have certainly created a conceptual and technical artifact based on Pessoa’s writing processes and on their editorial history that will force us to rethink many of our assumptions about editing, reading and writing texts.
