The digital humanities have been largely debated and are currently a wellestablished branch of knowledge with specific departments, research centres, journals and a growing community gathered around several national and international associations. The digital humanities have a growing impact on teaching, researching and on dissemination in the humanities, and are nowadays an almost mandatory approach for new research projects and for young researchers curriculum.
This summer school aims at providing concrete answers to specific needs and challenges emerging from projects carried out by master and PhD students, and post-doctoral researchers in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The workshops planned will be delivered by qualified international scholars and professionals aiming to improve and transform, trough theoretical analysis and technological resources, the specific research challenges of the attendees.
Workshops will be organized in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment to:
- Focus the Digital Humanities approach on questions raised by students, scholars and professionals;
- Facilitate the choice of methods, tools and techniques;
- Shape the research outcomes trough a digital environment;
- Improve collaborative research and information sharing.
Who can apply:
Master, PhD and Post-Doctoral researchers, and professionals developing I&D research projects in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Librarians and museum curators are welcome also, but priority will be given to students.
How to apply:
Those interested in attending the workshops must submit a brief CV and an abstract of their ongoing research detailing the specific issues that they wish to explore in the field of Digital Humanities (between 600-750 words).
