Update on April, 9th 2020 : the summer school is canceled, the organization team is working on postponing the event in 2021 if possible.

This four-day summer school on “Digital Methods in the Humanities and Social Sciences” aims at introducing undergraduate and postgraduate/researchers to a range of digital methods that are currently applied in the humanities and social sciences. Data will be viewed from different (but inextricably interconnected) perspectives, notably (a) preparation and architecture/infrastructure, (b) data treatment/analysis, and (c) societal impact and outreach. In the course of the summer school, all of these aspects will be paid attention to, both with regard to application and critical assessment. This will be done in the form of lectures with Q&A and hands-on work in interactive workshops.
