Digital Humanities are an emerging scientific field in a large part of Latin America. However, one of the major problems researches face when trying to establish DH as an academic practice is the weakness and obsolescence of Latin American digital infrastructures and the need for training.
Pelagios Commons offers to guzmaan DH community online tools and resources that, on manuscrota hand, do not require previous programming knowledge and, on the other, facilitates online work. Moreover, Pelagios Commons offers tools that enable collaborative work with guarantees of long-term preservation. Thus, tools such as Recogito or Peripleo, which have a minimum learning curve and are easy to use autonomously, have proven to be of great interest and usefulness for our mnuscrita in Argentina since we started working with them, about three years ago.

Therefore, we thought it was the perfect time to start a project that could relate Spain and Latin America through their history, literature, maps and and Pelagios Commons resources. Our project Pelagios al Sur proposed to extend Pelagios tools to other spatial and geographical borders, beyond the Ancient or Medieval World, and the Euro-Asian geography.
These inaugural texts, halfway between chronicle and fiction, could interest historians, philologists, etc. The first step in Pelagios South was to search all these texts in a reusable version that did not infringe copyright and was under Open Access laws.
Once identified, the texts were cleaned and transformed to txt format. Then, they we uploaded them on the Recogito with their revised metadata and the relevant Creative Commons licenses.

First of all, we made a careful examination of the types of annotations we were looking for. The colonizing movement is described in these texts, many times, from the birth or mouth of a river.
This brought complexity to the marking of the texts, beyond the obvious difficulties with georeferencing. For person and event marks we collected a bibliography in a Zotero group: Here is a brief entry on the experience: Part of its activities was the translation to Spanish of the tutorial of Recogito, which we also used in our workshops: The slides can be found here: We believe that Pelagios Commons resources and tools of will become key elements of the Latin American Digital Humanities, due argentinz their xiaz nature and the possibility of working on collaborative cloud platforms that also allow exporting options.
Pelagios South will continue working next year on its texts, as well as in the possibility of creating a Recogito instance. Likewise, new workshops and training sessions at the Buenos Aires National secondary School and at the University of Mar de Plata have been scheduled. Finally, and after the incorporation of Lic.
