University of Leipzig

We are very happy to announce that thanks to DARIAH-EU, the
CLARIN-ERIC and DHSI quite a number of tuition fellowships or travel
bursaries (see http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/1078)
are now available and that there are still a few DAAD scholarships,
Eastern European partner universities bursaries and Erasmus + 107
Scholarships left.

In order to give people a chance to make good use of all these
scholarships, fellowships and bursaries, we herewith extend the deadline

Digital Humanities
(http://www.culingtec.uni-leipzig.de/ESU_C_T/node/1149)to the 15th of
May 2019.

The Summer University takes place across 11 whole days. The intensive

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 number of participants of each workshop is limited to 10.

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 cooperations.

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.

As the Summer University is dedicated not only to the acquisition of
knowledge and skills, but also wants to foster community building and
networking across disciplines, languages and cultures, countries and
continents, the programme of the Summer School features also communal
coffee breaks, communal lunches in the refectory of the university, and
a rich cultural programme (thematic guided tours, visits of archives,
museums and exhibitions, and communal dinners in different parts of
