“Culture & Technology” – The European Summer University in Digital Humanities – Leipzig
19th to 29th July 2016
Deadline: 5 June 2016

“The Summer School „Culture & Technology“ aims to find a remedy to the situation described under “Background”. In fact, in bringing together young scholars from the Humanities, Engineering and Information Sciences, it creates the conditions for future project‐oriented collaboration and networking across the borders of the individual disciplines.”

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.

Digital Humanities Summer Institute
University of Victoria – Canada
6-10 June 2016
Deadline: 14 February 2016 (For Scholarships)

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines, via a community-based approach.

A time of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants at DHSI share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies. Every summer, the institute brings together faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities as well as independent scholars and participants from areas beyond.

Las bibliotecas digitales inteligentes para la docencia e investigación
Universidad Complutense de Madrid
Del 6 de julio al 8 de julio
Deadline: 9 de junio 2015

En las últimas décadas las bibliotecas han dado un paso de gigante con la digitalización masiva de sus fondos y la apertura de sus contenidos para el uso y disfrute de la sociedad digital. Sin embargo, investigadores y profesores, tanto de enseñanza superior como de primaria y secundaria, experimentan grandes dificultades a la hora de utilizar, enriquecer y compartir esos contenidos con alumnos y con otros investigadores. Este curso pretende explorar las nuevas necesidades que tienen los usuarios de las bibliotecas y repositorios digitales con el objetivo de hacer evolucionar el modelo de la biblioteca tradicional hacia la smartlibrary, la biblioteca digital inteligente.

Zine-Design: Library-as-Machine
Universität der Künste Berlin – Berlin University of the Arts
28-31 July 2015
Deadline: 30.06.2015

Along with the discourse on post-digital print, the role of both the library / archive and the book is about to change once more. Ideas of books as archives and archives as books constantly merge and shift. How can artistic and design practice react to this and how can libraries and archives be used as tools and as content material for print design?

The intention of the workshop is to exclusively use the Berlin University of the Arts’ library as a post-digital machine. The workshop results for every participant in the actual designing – compiling, collaging, sampling – of a paper zine which comprises of related content material exclusively available on site with the technical means given (databases, photocopiers, scanners, printers etc.).

In presentations and practical exercises we will present the possibilities and limits in the application of CSI-style techniques from material sciences, imaging computational and digital humanities to manuscripts. MA students, PhD candidates, postdocs and colleagues from all countries dealing with any of the concerned disciplines or manuscript cultures may apply.

“Culture & Technology” – The European Summer University in Digital Humanities
University of Leipzig, 28-07-2015 to 07-08-2015
Deadline: 31.05.2015

Culture and technology should not be understood as referring to computer science applied to cultural studies. The central concern are the Humanities, which are concerned with culture in the broadest sense. Those fields within the Humanities that integrate technologies and computing in their research and which are at least potentially in dialogue with the questions posed by the Digital Humanities are our privileged addressees.

The school was originally conceived as “European” in order to emphasise the object of promoting and developing the Digital Humanities within a European context. The applications of participation submitted for the 2. Summer School demonstrated clearly, however, that the Summer School was already acknowledged as an institution in Europe, qua an established European institution.

The adjective “European” underlines, furthermore, the generally multilingual and multicultural nature of scientific research.

Vienna Summer School in Digital Humanities
Vienna University of Technology, 06.07.2015-10.07.2015
Deadline: 14.05.2015

Traditional research in the social sciences and humanities is challenged by the emergence of new methods and tools that allow us to gain and compute more knowledge integrating various data sources. At the same time, our human experiences and our ways of learning and knowing are increasingly mediated by technology. More data than ever before are produced, captured and archived by scientists and citizens alike, and can be accessed and analyzed online.

This Summer School aims to discuss the possibilities of computer science-based research methods in the Digital Humanities while at the same time investigating the epistemological challenges of these methods as well as their theoretical bases and implications. It will explore a wide range of digital practices and methods that are becoming more and more widespread in the social sciences and humanities. Furthermore, the Summer School will offer participants hands-on experience with tools and techniques. The following topics will be covered:

– Introduction to Digital Humanities and its methodological challenges;
– Text mining with a focus on (a) news and (micro-)blogs mining and (b) opinion mining, sentiment analysis, and beyond;
– Critical engagement with (especially online) data;
– Theories of human-technology interaction – user tracking / digital traces / data bodies / quantified self and their implications for data collection, analysis and communication of results;
– Social network analysis;
– Information visualization and visual analytics.

A high-ranking international faculty with a variety of disciplinary and methodological backgrounds will present these topics: Bettina Berendt (KU Leuven, Belgium), Sema Colpan (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for History and Society, Austria), Noshir Contractor (Northwestern University, USA), Paolo Federico (Vienna University of Technology, Austria), Ulrike Gretzel (University of Queensland, Australia), Theresia Gschwandtner (Vienna University of Technology, Austria), Georg Kö (University of Bamberg, Germany), and Julia Neidhardt (Vienna University of Technology, Austria).

We invite dedicated PhD students to submit applications. The Summer School is specifically designed for students from the social sciences and humanities, with an emphasis on history, film and media studies, cultural studies, anthropology, human and cultural geography, linguistics, urban studies, sociology and arts.

The Summer School will be hosted by the E-Commerce Group at the Vienna University of Technology and is funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF).
