available also on the previous website http://esu.culintec.de/.

The European Summer University in Digital Humanities "Culture &
Technology" (ESU DH C&T) takes place now for the 11th time at the
University of Leipzig. This year it is organised for the first time by
the Forum for Digital Humanities Leipzig (FDHL) (https://fdhl.info/).

Interest in the ESU DH C&T can be expressed already now by creating an
account with the ConfTool of the Summer University -- 
https://www.conftool.org/esu2020/. The application phase begins the
10th of March 2020 and ends the 30th of April 2020. Information on how
to apply can be found here: http://esu.culintec.de/?q=node/1304.

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.

Like in the former years quite a number of scholarships can be granted
to participants of the European Summer University. In fact, the German
Accademic Exchange Service (DAAD) makes available also this year
generous support to up to 23 alumni / alumnae of German universities.
Furthermore, the International Office of Leipzig University offers quite
a range of scholarships. On top of this a generous grant from DARIAH-EU
allows us to attribute 10 teaching fellowships. All information on the
already now (and eventually in the future) available scholarships can be
found here: http://esu.culintec.de/?q=node/1303.

The four workshops sponsered by CLARIN-D / CLARIAH-DE alow us,
furthermore, to keep participation fees low also this year (see

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.

European Summer School in Digital Humanities "Culture & Technology"

with more information as soon as it becomes available. Temporarily
infomation will be available also on the previous website
