    Pathos. Forms and fortunes of literary emotions

    The goal of this summer school is to explore the role of emotions in literature, namely with respect to the excess of pathos in different forms and times. Pathos has been a fundamental aspect of literature in every epoch. Great poetry has always foregrounded its ability to represent feelings, evoke intense and vivid moods, and elicit readers’ emotions and empathy. On the other hand, the novel – the genre dominating literary modernity – has been o!en accused of indulging in sentimental excess, giving too much space to melodramatic expression. Indeed, in Western cultures, there is a widespread suspicion towards pathos, which has o!en been identified as a shortcoming of literature. Great books – according to a common implicit assumption – can prompt reflection and laughter, but not tears: pathos only concerns lowbrow production. The summer school is an opportunity to engage in a reflection on issues related to pathos in literature in the last few centuries. Different perspectives will be taken into account: specific literary works, reader response theory, cognitive narratology, transmedia adaptation, and publishing history.

    Mapping Ancient Gods

    ERC Advanced Grant MAP project (Mapping Ancient Polytheisms. Cult Epithets as an Interface between Religious Systems and Human Agency)

    The ERC Advanced Grant MAP project (Mapping Ancient Polytheisms. Cult Epithets as an Interface between Religious Systems and Human Agency; 741182; http://map-polytheisms.huma-num.fr1) works on the naming systems for the divine in the Greek and Western Semitic worlds, from 1000 BCE to 400 CE and views them as testimonies to the way in which divine powers are constructed, arranged and involved within ritual. The analysis deals both with the structural aspects of the religious systems and with their contextual appropriation by social participants. Considered to be elements of a complex language, the onomastic channels are related to the gods, therefore providing access to a mapping process of the divine, to its ways of representation and to the communication strategies between men and gods.Within this framework, the MAP Team proposes a Summer School in collaboration with the French Research Centre in Jerusalem (http://www.crfj.org) which covers the project’s themes and tools.

    Digital humanities and Jewish geography in Europe

    Perspectives for the revision of medieval Jewish history before 1300

    L'université d'été du projet-pilote franco-allemand « Nouvelle Gallia-Germania Judaica » est destinée aux jeunes chercheurs autour. Elle ambitionne de relever le défi thématique et technique de l'écriture d'une nouvelle histoire des lieux juifs avant 1300 au long du Rhin. À partir de sept lieux représentatifs du Moyen-Âge juif en France et en Allemagne, les interprétations traditionnelles de l'histoire juive de ces lieux sont examinés à la loupe et servent de « champ d’expérimentation » pour identifier ainsi que pour mettre en cause de manière critique différentes approches de recherche.

    Research methods and problem-solving

    Digital humanities summer school (Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas)

    The digital humanities have been largely debated and are currently a wellestablished branch of knowledge with specific departments, research centres, journals and a growing community gathered around several national and international associations. The digital humanities have a growing impact on teaching, researching and on dissemination in the humanities, and are nowadays an almost mandatory approach for new research projects and for young researchers curriculum. This summer school aims at providing concrete answers to specific needs and challenges emerging from projects carried out by master and PhD students, and post-doctoral researchers in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

    Using and thinking research data

    Franco-German masterclass in the digital humanities

    Cette master class franco-allemande en humanités numériques vise à rassembler huit jeunes chercheurs allemands et huit jeunes chercheurs français participant à ou porteurs de projets en humanités numériques et à leur offrir un forum où échanger de manière fructueuse pour la poursuite de leur recherche, autour de la question de la gestion des données de la recherche. Chacun(e) doit être prêt à présenter son projet (et les données afférentes sous un format ouvert) et à le mettre en dialogue avec ceux des autres particpant(e)s dans un type de rencontre proche d’un THATCamp, c’est-à-dire sans enseignement magistral ni exposé frontal.

    Digital History Summer School

    Today, historians are increasingly confronted with questions about the use of primary sources. How does one deal with historical primary sources in the Digital Age? What peculiarities present sources, which have been digitized, or which originated in digital form–so-called “born-digital” sources? How do we read them? How do we interpret them? How can they be used in order to construct a historical narrative? 

    This four-day Summer School offers historians (PhD-candidates, graduates students, established historians) the opportunity to acquire the basic principles of data usage in the historical sciences, and benefit from insights gained in other humanities and social sciences disciplines.

    Data bases and history - international doctoral school

    École doctorale internationale

    L’objectif est de permettre aux étudiants de doctorat de se former aux méthodes de structurations des données, ainsi qu’aux enjeux historiographiques et épistémologiques de leur application aux sciences sociales en générale, et à l’histoire en particulier. Il s’agit donc d’articuler la théorie et la découverte des notions qui sous-tendent l’édification d’une base de données (structuration, architecture, modèle conceptuel des données…) et leur exploration statistique (statistique descriptive, multivariée, exploratoire). Pour atteindre cet objectif, cette semaine s’organisera sur un schéma simple : les matinées commencerons par une heure de discussion sur des lectures recommandées ou des exercices à réaliser, suivie par des conférences méthodologiques ; les après-midis sont consacrés à des prises en main logiciels et des expérimentations individuelles ou en groupes pour favoriser l’apprentissage.

    Open Data Citation for Social Sciences and Humanities

    DARIAH's Humanities at Scale Winter School

    The development of digital humanities during the past twenty years has increased the availability of research data in the humanities, in open access form, from a tremendous number of sources, in a broad heterogeneity of documents and formats. More generally, it is the very relation between research data and publication itself that modifies and constitutes an issue for the digital humanities, particularly through the question of data citation in the context of openness – how does one effectively cite data in the humanities for broad re-use and research impact?

    Research, pedagogic sessions and tools for controversy mapping

    FORCCAST Summer School 2015

    In 2014, we started the FORCCAST summer school with a provocative question: “What is a good controversy?”. We began by lining up case studies selected by participants which were then discussed by  participants in small groups. We would like to continue this exercise by inviting scholars working on controversies to present their case study and situate the notion of “controversies” in relation to more established and used social sciences concepts. It is not unfair to detect a somewhat casual use of “controversies” as an analytical resource. Against this trend, we encourage scholars to present research that falls within this area, and also to refine the coarse nature of the very term “controversy”. Over the years, we will build a repository of case studies that should help all of us to analyze the diversity behind the use of the term “controversies”, to identify some patterns, and hopefully to build a common typology.
