This workshop addresses the language of power in imperial court records from Ancient

Mesopotamia and the medieval period to the Venetian and the Ottoman Empire and Ming

China, and explores new ways of historical comparison. The case studies focus on the semantics

of trial and their underlying grammar of coercion and contribute to the development of a

prototype of cross-corpora comparison, developed by Claude Chevaleyre (CNRS, ENS Lyon)

and Juliane Schiel (University of Vienna) and based on a computational historical semantics

approach and graph modelling. The workshop brings together scholars of the recently launched

Cluster of Excellence on "EurAsian Transformations" with members of the COST Action

"Worlds of Related Coercions in Work" (WORCK) and other colleagues interested in semantic

analysis, graph modelling and historical comparison.
