More or less every day after the close of the workshops a lecture directed not only at the participants of the Summer School, but also at other academics, students and the interested public will be given.
This year these lectures revolve around the question "What does it mean to be a humanist in a digital world? What are the challenges, changes and possibilities the Humanities face and with them Computer Science and the other knowledge fields which interact with Digital Humanities? What are the implications of digitalisation for their work?"
The lectures take place in GWZ HS 2010.
The following public lectures will be given:
