1st Summer School of Digital Humanities: Distant Reading - Potentials and Applications
The summer school is primarily directed at Heidelberg doctoral students, but we are also happy to welcome non-locals who are interested in the topic. Distant reading thrives on interdisciplinarity and is applicable in philology (classical philology, German studies, English studies, Romance studies), in literary studies, linguistics, in archival and library sciences, history, theology, palaeography, philosophy, statistics, sociology, and even in law. Furthermore, there are a number of promising connecting factors with IT, computational linguistics, computer philology and media IT.
Every junior researcher with a project related to distant reading is welcome. The summer school will be held in English.
We hope that many participants seize the opportunity to present their projects during the poster session and thereby contribute to a fruitful discussion and exchange of ideas.
