"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.
