First ReIReS Digital Humanities Course in Mainz, January 2019The First ReIReS Digital Humanities Course is organized by the Leibniz Institute of European History and will be held in Mainz, January 21-23, 2019. Young scholars, librarians and others affiliated to ReIReS partners and institutions outside the consortium are welcome to apply.
The Mainz DH course introduces participants to the theoretical, methodological, and practical aspects of Digital Humanities. By discussing, then, topics ranging from the changes digital technologies bring to the very identity of a scholar until the process of digitisation of their materials and research. The latter aspect is, furthermore, discussed within the context of digitisation of personal data and materials and at the same time by integrating one’s own data to larger systems.
The course as a whole is built on theoretical approaches with a methodological dimension that will equip the participants with the necessary skills to later experiment with other and/or new tools for their research as well.
The course seeks to cover both practical and theoretical topics in order to allow participants to understand not only the digital topics per se, but also how research reached there. That is either the theoretical background for an innovative tool or the context for the development of an existing one. Participants will be able to adapt such approaches in their own working methods and extend the knowledge they receive in other fields.
