Subject: ESU DH "Culture & Technology", 22 July - 2 August 2013 University of Leipzig - bursaries
*"Culture & Technology" - European Summer School in Digital Humanities ,
22 July - 2 August 2013 University of Leipzig -
We are very happy to announce that thanks to a generous support from
CLARIN-D we can now offer some travel / accommodation bursaries.
To give interested people, who so far did not dare to apply because of
financial reasons, a chance to do so now we extend the deadline for
*applications to the 12**th of July 2013*. The 12th ad midnight the
system will be definitely closed.
*Please note*: applications for places and bursaries are considered on a
rolling basis. Only people who have been attributed a place by the
expert evaluators can register for the Summer School. Only registered
participants can apply for a bursary.
Information on how to apply for a place in one of the workshops can be
found at: http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/230.
*Accommodation*: As two important fairs take place in Leipzig at the
same time as the Summer School, people who are interested in taking part
in the Summer School are strongly advised to book / apply for a place in
one of the comfortable but reasonably prized hostels or student
residences as early as possible. For more information see
*Certificate*: Participation in the summer school and the Workload will
be certified. The Workload of the participation in one workshop, all the
lectures and project presentations, the poster session, and the panel
session taken together corresponds to 5 ECTS-Points.
**The Summer School is directed at 60 participants from all over Europe
and beyond. The Summer School wants to bring together (doctoral)
students, young scholars and academics from the Arts and Humanities,
Library Sciences, Engineering and Computer Sciences as equal partners to
an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and experience in a
multilingual and multicultural context and thus create the conditions
for future project-based cooperations and network-building across the
borders of disciplines, countries and cultures.
The Summer School aims to provide a stimulating environment for
discussing, learning and advancing knowledge and skills in the methods
and technologies which play a central role in Humanities Computing and
determine more and more the work done in the Arts and Humanities, in
libraries, archives, and similar fields. The Summer School seeks to
integrate these activities into the broader context of the /Digital
Humanities/, where questions about the consequences and implications of
the application of computational methods and tools to cultural artefacts
of all kinds are asked. It further aims to provide insights into the
complexity of humanistic data and the challenges the Humanities present
for computer science and engineering and their further development.
In all this the Summer School also aims at confronting the so-called
/Gender Divide/, i.e. the under-representation of women in the domain of
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Germany and Europe.
But, instead of strengthening the/ hard sciences /as such by following
the way taken by so many measures which focus on the so-called STEM
disciplines and try to convince women of the attractiveness and
importance of Computer Science or Engineering, the Summer School relies
on the challenges that the Humanities with their complex data and their
wealth of women represent for Computer Science and Engineering and the
further development of the latter, on the overcoming of the boarders
between /hard/ and /soft sciences/ and on the integration of Humanities,
Computer Science and Engineering.
The Summer School takes place across 11 whole days. The intensive
programme consists of workshops, public lectures, regular project
presentations, a poster session and a panel discussion.

*The call for the Summer School should also be intended as a call for
project presentation. We expect above all the young scholars who
participate in the Summer School to present their projects. Next to
projects of the participants of the Summer School advanced institutional
and / or funded projects by scholars from the Humanities, Computer
Science and Engineering will be presented.
*The Summer School will feature a panel discussion devoted to the
question "Humanities, Libraries and Computer Science - How to Manage the
Synergies and Antagonies?"
