    Summer School - Epistemology and methodology

    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.

    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.

    Early printed books: from the Gutenberg invention to the digital revolution

    Published before 1501, the first printed editions, known as incunabula, first captured the interest of booklovers, researchers, and librarians three centuries ago. Today, knowledge of the output from these first fifty years is more widespread as a result of national and international bibliographical research. An inventory of some 30,000 incunabular books has been compiled, representing around fifty million copies that circulated over a period of roughly fifty years. This summer school aims to increase the participants' awareness of the issues surrounding the description, cataloguing and digitisation of incunabula. It is intended to highlight the interest of a scientific approach, for example by focussing on the conditions in which they were produced and on their content, as well as by reconstructing their journey to the present day through the study of their bindings and marks of origin.

    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.

    Summer university in the digital humanities

    L’importance croissante du tournant numérique a affecté profondément les sciences humaines : il a modifié la nature et les modalités de construction des savoirs, fait émerger de nouvelles méthodes d’analyse – empiriques et quantitatives –, et transformé les procédés didactiques et les pratiques de recherche. Dans le prolongement de ses activités scientifiques, le labex OBVIL propose du 4 au 9 juillet une semaine de formation en humanités numériques. Le programme de cette année s’intéressera principalement à la poésie, au théâtre, au roman et à la critique en présentant l’état de l’art des différents concepts et instruments qui peuvent être mis en œuvre pour interroger les textes.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Visual Analysis with Digital Tools

    Göttingen Center for Digital Humanities (GCDH) International Summer School 2014

    The Digital Humanities enhance the methods of traditional research in the humanities through automated data acquisition and processing. Visualisations can play a central role in analysing such data. This Summer School will address a set of fundamental problems, such as requirements for scientific visualisation or visual strategies. The main goal, however, is to focus on the practical side to enable the participants to tackle specific visualisation problems in order to advance their own research. The natural sciences have a long tradition of interest in visualisation methods (just compare magazines like "Science" or "Nature" to any magazine with a humanities background). The humanities are catching up, though, and starting to apply visualisation techniques to answer their own research questions. A set of tools has emerged in recent years and has introduced a number of visualisation practices into the humanities. Charts, graphics, 3D visualisations or "Maps, Graphs, Trees" (to quote the title of a well-known recent book on the subject), should not only illustrate, but also create new knowledge. Only then can we call visualisations a true method in the Digital Humanities.
