I agree that "Digitale Geisteswissenschaften" is long but the 'European 
Summer School in Digital Humanities "Culture & Technology"' is called in 
German 'Europäische Sommeruniversität in Digitalen Geisteswissenschaften 
"Kulturen & Technologien"'. This long denomination is used in every 
publication in German.

Best, Elisabeth
