"Culture & Technology" - European Summer School
in Digital Humanities , 22 July - 2 August 2013
University of Leipzig - http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/
We are happy to announce that the phase of
application for a place at the European Summer
School in Digital Humanities "Culture & Technology has now started.
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.
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 workshop programme is composed of
the following 7 thematic strands:
* Computing Methods applied to DH: TEI-XML Markup and CSS/XSLT Rendering
* Query in Text Corpora
* Stylometry: Computer-Assisted Analysis of Literary Texts
* Digital Editions
* Art History: Research and Teaching going Digital
* Interdisciplinary approaches to the study
of multimodal human-human / human-machine communication / interaction
* Large Project Planning, Funding, and Management
Each workshop consists of a total of 15 sessions
or 30 week-hours. The number of participants in
each workshop is limited to 12.
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/.
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
with good arguments what they hope to learn from the summer school.
Applications are considered on a rolling basis.
The selection of participants is made by the
Scientific Committee together with the experts who lead the workshops.
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.
