Gimena del Rio
My name is Gimena del Rio. I am a researcher at the Seminario de Edicion y Crítica Textual (SECRIT-CONICET), http://www.iibicrit-conicet.gov.ar/, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. My main interests deal with the scholarly edition and study of Spanish and Galician-Portuguese Medieval lyrical poetry and the development of digital tools for scholars. I believe in crowdsourcing and collaborative projects that go far beyond the boundaries of a country, so I collaborate with Spanish digital projects such as MedDB: Base de datos da Lírica Profana Galego-Portuguesa, http://www.cirp.es/, and Bibliografía de Escritoras Españolas. BIESES, http://www.bieses.net. I am part of the digital project Repertorio Digital de la Métrica Medieval Castellana (ReMetCa), www.uned.es/remetca, and I am part of the Hypothéses comitee, http://es.hypotheses.org. I have also organized the first THATCamp in Buenos Aires, http://buenosaires2013.thatcamp.org/, altogether with Barbara Bordalejo, and I am now working in a Digital Humanities Association in my country, http://aahd.com.ar/, in which I mean to reflect on the geopolitics and the definition of the Digital Humanities.
