1st European Summer School

We are happy to announce the 1st European Summer School “Culture & Technology” to take place at the University of Leipzig, Germany, July 27-31, 2009

http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU/

Funded by the University of Leipzig, the Volkswagen Foundation and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC), the Summer School is directed at an international audience. Students in their final year, graduates, postgraduates, doctoral students, postdocs, teachers, librarians and technical assistants from all over Europe who are involved in the theoretical, experimental or practical application of computational methods in the various areas of the Humanities, in libraries and archives, or wish to do so are the target audience of the courses.

The Summer School will offer Humanities students in particular the possibility to gain practical knowledge of the application of computational methods to the digitalisation, description, analysis and production of humanities contents and artefacts (languages, texts, images, etc.), to discuss related theoretical questions and to forge new perspectives on the study and preservation of languages, cultures and cultural memory and the translation between cultures.
The Summer School addresses also expressively engineers and computer scientist who accept the challenge represented by the Arts and Humanities, who wish to obtain an insight into the application of, and work with, computational methods in the Humanities, and who wish to familiarise themselves with the special demands put on the soft- and hardware systems they develop by arts and humanities-related data.

The Summer School takes place across a whole week. The intensive programme consists of workshops, lectures and project presentations. The Summer School will close with a round table discussion on the challenges presented by technological developments and by the integration of the Humanities and ICTs.

Each workshop consists of a total of 15 sessions or 30 week-hours. The number of participants in each workshop is limited to 15. Applications for a place in a specific workshop are made on the Portal of the Summer School.

Preference will be given to young scholars of the Humanities who are planning, or are already involved with, a technology-based research project and describe this project in a qualified way. 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 that they support their expectations from the Summer School with good arguments.

Thanks to the generous support granted by the Volkswagen Foundation to the Summer School, participants who have no possibility of applying for a refund from another institution can apply for a contribution to their travel and accommodation costs.

Important dates
