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.

In all this the Summer School also aims at confronting the so-called Gender Divide, i.e. the under-representation of women in the domain of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Germany and Europe. But, instead of strengthening the hard sciences as such by following the way taken by so many measures which focus on the so-called STEM disciplines and try to convince women of the attractiveness and importance of Computer Science or Engineering, the Summer School relies on the challenges that the Humanities with their complex data and their wealth of women represent for Computer Science and Engineering and the further development of the latter, on the overcoming of the boarders between hard and soft sciences and on the integration of Humanities, Computer Science and Engineering.

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.

Workshops (http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/226):

  *   Computing Methods applied to DH: TEI-XML Markup and CSS/XSLT Rendering
  *   Query in Text Corpora
  *   Stylometry: Computer-Assisted Analysis of Literary Texts
  *   Editing in the Digital Age: From Script, to Print, to Digital Page
  *   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.

Project presentations:

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.

Panel discussion:

The Summer School will feature a panel discussion devoted to the question"Humanities, Libraries and Computer Science - How to Manage the Synergies and Antagonies?"

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