Dear list readers, 

May I kindly draw you attention to a one week workshop about eHumanities and eHeritage Research Infrastructures that I will co-teach this Summer during the European Summer University at Leipzig (ESU 2018)? 

If you have any questions, you are very warmly welcome to contact me. 

Best wishes, 

Ulrike Wuttke 

Lost in Isolation?
Then why not apply for the PARTHENOS-workshop “How Research Infrastructures empower eHumanities and eHeritage Research(ers)” [1] at the European Summer University in Digital Humanities [2] at Leipzig?
Trainers Prof. Dr. Heike Neuroth and Dr. Ulrike Wuttke (both University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, PARTHENOS) will teach you how to use research infrastructures in a way that your research project can benefit from the knowledge, data, methods and tools of humanities’ research communities.

This five-day workshop will provide you with important insights into the theoretical foundations of doing research with research infrastructures in the fields of (Digital) Humanities and Cultural Heritage. Furthermore, it gives you the opportunity to apply and transfer these theoretical foundations to your own research projects. You will learn how to benefit from research infrastructures during each stage of the research process : from the development of research questions, designing your research project, analysing your data through  publishing your results.

The  workshop will take place in the context of the European Summer University in Digital Humanities: Culture and Technology 2018 (ESU 2018), between 17 July 2018 and 27 July 2018 (first week). There are quite some amazing other courses you can follow in the second week and the ESU is a very welcoming and inspiring place to learn and connect!  
The deadline for applications is 1 May 2018.

Visit the ESU-website [2] and learn more about the contents of this workshop, other workshops that are on offer, how to apply, scholarships and bursaries.

Target groups for this workshop: Students in their final year, graduates, postgraduates, doctoral students, postdocs, teachers, librarians and technical assistants from all over Europe and beyond, who are interested in Digital Humanities and/or Cultural Heritage research. We would be very grateful if you could forward this announcement to potential participants (e.g. your students and colleagues).

Date: 17 July 2018 - 27 July 2018 (PARTHENOS workshop during first week)
Application deadline: 1 May 2018 via the ESU-website [3]
Organisation: The workshop has been conceived by the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam and the University of Leipzig for PARTHENOS (Pooling Activities, Resources and Tools for Heritage E-research Networking, Optimization and Synergies) [4].

        Subject: Workshop: Privacy, Open Data and the Humanities (London, 21 June 2018)

Dear all,

Here is the announcement for a workshop I am organising in London. If
you would like to present a short paper, or simply to attend, please
send me an email: l.jaillant at lboro.ac.uk

Workshop, DH at Lboro
School of Advanced Study, London, 21 June 2018
Privacy, Open Data and the Humanities

The Cambridge Analytica scandal has led to a privacy backlash and to
calls for tighter regulation of Facebook and other Internet Giants.
Social and computer scientists fear that legitimate researchers could
be collaterally damaged. Yet, there has been no discussion on the plight
of Humanities researchers confronted to “dark archives.” For example,
the archive of the poetry publisher Carcanet in Manchester contains
hundreds of thousands of emails, but it is currently closed due to
data protection issues. With the forthcoming introduction of the
General Data Protection Regulation (May 2018), it may be even more
complicated to access data in the future.

This workshop will bring together academics, archivists and open data
advocates to discuss the issues of privacy and access to data. We will
focus primarily (but not exclusively) on cultural data and the case of
the Humanities.

Best wishes,
Dr Lise Jaillant | Lecturer (Assistant Professor)
School of the Arts, English and Drama | Loughborough University, UK
