        Subject: ESU DH C&T 2-12 August 2022 Leipzig: Extension of the application phase


We have received (more than) 10 applications for quite some workshops.
As we can still accept a few applications and as we have still a
number of scholarships left  ( we
herewith extend the application (
phase for a place at the European Summer University in Digital
Humanities “Culture & Technology”  to 16. June 2022 (midnight).

The 12th edition of the European Summer University, organised by Prof.
Dr. Elisabeth Burr, Institut für Romanistik, and her team, together
with the Forum Digital Humanities Leipzig (FDHL) (,
takes place in person from the 2nd to the 12th August 2022 at the
University of Leipzig. Its intensive programme consists of workshops,
teaser sessions, public lectures, regular project presentations, a
poster session and a panel discussion.
For the following Workshops we can still accept single applications
(for more information on the workshops see:
- Alex Bia (University Miguel Hernández, Elche, Spain): XML-TEI
document encoding, structuring, rendering and transformation (2 weeks)

- Carol Chiodo (Harvard University, USA) / Lauren Tilton (University
of Richmond, USA): Hands on Humanities Data Workshop - Creation,
Discovery and Analysis (2 weeks)

- Maciej Eder (Polish Academy of Sciences / Pedagogical University,
Cracow, Poland) / Jeremi Ochab (Jagiellonian University, Cracow,
Poland): Stylometry (2 weeks)

- Stefan Th. Gries (University of California, Santa Barbara, USA /
Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen, Germany): Text processing for
linguists and literary scholars with R (1 week, week 2).

- Peter Bell (Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany) / Fabian Offert
(University of California, Santa Barbara, USA): Visual Artificial
Intelligence for the Digital Humanities (2 weeks)

- Jason Boyd (Ryerson University Toronto, Canada): Procedural
Creativity and Digital Humanities Scholarship (1 week, week 2)

Robinson (University of Saskatchewan, Canada): Making an edition of a
text in many versions (2 weeks)

- Jason Boyd (Ryerson University Toronto, Canada): Project Planning
and Management in the Digital Humanities (1 week, week 1)

Each workshop consists of a total of 18 sessions or 36 week-hours. The
number of participants in each workshop is limited to 10. Workshops
are structured in such a way that participants can either take the two
blocks of one workshop or two blocks from different workshops.

The "workload" of an active participation in the European Summer
University corresponds to 6 ETCS points.

The Summer University is directed at 60 participants from all over
Europe and beyond. It wants to bring together (doctoral) students,
young scholars and academics from the Arts and Humanities, Library
Sciences, Social Sciences, the Arts and 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 co-operations.

The Leipzig Summer University is special because it not only seeks to
offer a space for the discussion and acquisition of new knowledge,
skills and competences in those computer technologies which play a
central role in Humanities Computing and which determine every day
more and more the work done in the Humanities and Cultural Sciences,
as well as in publishing, libraries, and archives etc., but because it
tries to integrate these technologies, methods and tools with the
questions Digital Humanities pose about the consequences and
implications of their application to cultural artefacts of all kinds.

It is special furthermore because it consciously 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, Europe and many parts of the world, by relying 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 borders
between the so-called hard and soft sciences and on the integration of
Humanities, Computer Science and Engineering.

For all relevant information please consult the Web-Portal of the
European Summer School in Digital Humanities “Culture & Technology”: which will be continually updated and integrated
with more information as soon as it becomes available. If you would
like to know what the structure of the programme will most probably
look like then please see here or

With my best regards
