        Subject: "Culture & Technology" - 3rd European Summer School in Digital Humanities, 23 - 31 July 2012 University of Leipzig

Following numerous requests the deadline for 
applications has been extended to the 15th of June 2012

3rd European Summer School in Digital Humanities 
"Culture & Technology" , 23 - 31 July 2012, University of Leipzig


Supported by the Volkswagen Foundation and the 
Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing 
the Summer School will take place at Leipzig 
University, Germany, from the 23rd to the 31st of July 2012.

Deadline for application: 15th of June 2012.

Thanks to the generous support granted by the 
Volkswagen Foundation to the Summer School fees 
could be reduced considerably and a bursary scheme could be put into place.

The Summer School is directed at 75 participants 
from all over Europe and beyond. Students in 
their final year, graduates, postgraduates, 
doctoral students, and post docs from the 
Humanities, Engineering or Computer Sciences, as 
well as academics, librarians and technical 
assistants who are involved in the theoretical, 
experimental or practical application of 
computational methods in the various areas of the 
Humanities, in libraries or archives, or wish to 
do so are its target audience.

The Summer School aims to provide a stimulating 
environment for discussing, learning and 
advancing knowledge and skills in the application 
of computer technologies to 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.

The Summer School takes place across 9 whole 
days. The intensive programme consists of 
workshops, daily public lectures, regular project 
presentations, poster sessions and two round tables.

The workshops while focusing on essential 
questions such as XML Markup, the structuring of 
documents, the investigation and categorisation 
of style via statistical methods and the analysis 
of corpora, address also Art History from the 
perspective of Digital Humanities, and provide an 
introduction to the employment of virtual 
research infrastructures in Humanities research. 
A workshop will demonstrate how the 
interdisciplinary investigation of multimodal 
communication between humans and between humans 
and machines produces not only a new theory of 
multimodal human / machine communication, but 
also new theory and praxis of the annotation of 
video, audio, prosody, syntax and pragmatics 
which plays such a central role in the 
remedialisation of our cultural heritage. 
Likewise a workshop will be offered on project 
management, which is becoming increasingly 
important as a result of the tendency towards 
project-centred research in the interdisciplinary 
Digital Humanities. The results of the individual 
workshops will be aired in plenary sessions.

    * Computing Methods applied to DH: XML Markup and Document Structuring
    * Stylometry
    * Query in Text Corpora
    * Art history and the critical analysis of corpora
    * Interdisciplinary approaches to the study 
of multimodal human-human / human-machine communication
    * TextGrid
    * Project Management
Each workshop consists of a total of 15 sessions 
or 30 week-hours. The number of participants in each workshop is limited to 15.

Information on how to apply for a place in one of 
the workshops and for a bursary can be found at: 

Preference will be given to young scholars of the 
Humanities who are planning, or are already 
involved with, a technology-based research 
project and who submit a qualified project 
description. Young scholars of Engineering and 
Computer Sciences are expected to describe their 
specialities and interests in such a way that 
also non-specialists can follow, and to support 
what they hope to learn from the summer school with good arguments.

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.

Please note that we are planning to publish the 
projects which have been selected for 
presentation together with the lectures given by 
our internationally renowned specialists.

The public lectures will seek to handle questions 
posed by the development of Virtual Research 
Infrastructures for the Humanities from the 
perspective of the Humanities, their own ways of 
working and their specific types of data.

The Summer School will feature also two round 
table discussions focusing on Virtual Research 
Infrastructures which serve the Digital 
Humanities, and on Digital Humanities Summer Schools.

All questions regarding the programme of the 
Summer School, the selection of the participants 
as well as the selection of projects for eventual 
publication are handled by the international 
scientific committee of the European Summer School composed of:

·       Jean Anderson, University of Glasgow (Great Britain)
·       Alex Bia, Universidad Miguel Hernández in Elche (Spain)
·       Dino Buzzetti, Università di Bologna (Italy)
·       Elisabeth Burr, Universität Leipzig (Germany)
·       Laszlo Hunyadi, University of Debrecen (Hungary)
·       Jan Rybicki, Uniwersytet Jagiellonski, Kraków (Poland)
·       Corinne Welger-Barboza, Université Paris 1 – Panthéon-Sorbonne (France)

For all relevant information please consult the 
Web-Portal of the European Summer School in 
Digital Humanities “Culture & Technology”: 
which will be continually updated and integrated 
with more information as soon as it becomes available.

        Subject: Workshop at UCL: Representations in Action

Representations in Action:
Visual Practices in Art and Science

A one-day workshop organised by the Department of Science and Technology 
Studies, University College London

Museum of Zoology and Comparative Anatomy

Representations constitute a crucial common link between scientific and 
artistic visual practices. Integrating the history, philosophy and 
sociology of scientific and artistic representations, this one-day 
workshop will explore how representations function first and foremost as 
experimental practices and as guidelines to practical judgements in 
science and in the visual arts.

The aim of the workshop is to explore the role of representations “in 
action” -- that is, their function as practices that partake of a 
process of inquiry. Drawing on historical and contemporary case-studies, 
the contributions to the workshop will present a range of arguments that 
will place visual practices in science and the visual arts, along with 
their commonalities and tensions, at the centre of current 
epistemological and historiographical debates on the dynamics of 
scientific observation and visualization, the quest for objectivity and 
the evaluative practices that implicitly inform the construction and use 
of representations.
