The Summer School offers a range of workshops on important areas of Digital Humanities and Language Resources. All workshops run in parallel through the 11 days. Each workshop consists of a total of 16 sessions or 32 teaching hours.
The term "workshop" instead of "course / seminar" is used here to take into account that the approach of the Digital Humanities to knowledge creation is collaborative and project oriented and that the practical application of methods and skills plays a huge role. This does not mean that theory is excluded from these courses. On the contrary, the application of computational methods to artefacts and the meaningful use of digital technology pose many new and theoretical questions which need to be discussed.
Workshops will be structured in two equal blocks of 16 teaching hours each. Participants can either take the two blocks of one workshop or two blocks from different workshops. Participants who wish to take the first block of a workshop in the first week and the second block of another workshop in the second week, need to demonstrate in their application that they have already some knowledge in the topics which are treated in the first block of the latter workshop.
Please consult the Workshop Overview.
It will not be possible to register for one block only.
The number of participants in each workshop is limited to 10.
Participants are requested to bring along their own materials and projects so that what is being taught can be directly applied and tested.
For each workshop there will be a Moodle where material for preparation will be made available and which will be used as teaching environment during the Summer School.
The following workshops will be offered:
