        Subject: European Summer University in Digital Humanities "Culture & Technology" celebrates its 10th birthday from the 23rd of July to the 2nd of August 2019

*10th European Summer University in Digital Humanities "Culture &
Technology" - 23rd July - 2nd August 2019, University of Leipzig

The European Summer University in Digital Humanities "Culture &
Technology" (ESU) takes place for the 10th time at the University of

Interest in the ESU can be expressed already now by creating an account
with the ConfTool of the ESU https://www.conftool.org/esu2019/.

The Summer University takes place across 11 whole days. The intensive
programme consists of workshops, teaser sessions, public lectures,
regular project presentations, a poster session and a panel discussion.

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 the active participation in the European Summer
University corresponds to 6 ETCS points.

Also this year the German Accademic Exchange Service (DAAD) offers very
generous support to up to 20 alumni / alumnae of German universities.

Furthermore, the International Office of Leipzig University offers quite
a range of fellowships.

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 also linguistics with the Digital Humanities, which pose
questions about the consequences and implications of the application of
computational methods and tools 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 boarders between the
so-called hard and soft sciences and on the integration of Humanities,
Computer Science and Engineering.

updated and integrated with more information as soon as it becomes
