Research interests

Matija Ogrin works on early modern Slovenian literature, focusing on the periods from Baroque to early Romanticism and on the literary circle of Anton Martin Slomšek.

Ogrin’s work is founded upon research of primary sources, notably manuscripts, and their traditional scholarly treatment: transcription, commentary and critical editing. He has studied methods of digital scholarly editing and coordinated several projects in the field (such as eZISS). Ogrin edited several critical editions, including the Škofja Loka Passion Play. He serves as the editor of the the collected works of Slovenian writers (Zbrana dela slovenskih pesnikov in pisateljev). Together with Tomaž Erjavec, ISJ, he was awarded the Google Digital Humanities Research Award (2010). In recent years, Ogrin has been continuing his research in early modern Slovenian manuscripts.
