Beyond Editing: Advanced Solutions and Technologies Summer School

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

Beyond Editing:
Advanced Solutions and Technologies

Summer School
Prague – 4-8 Sept. 2017

Organised by the Faculty of Arts, Charles University Prague, and CNRS CIHAM UMR 5648, with the support of DARIAH’s Humanities at Scale programme

Call for Applications

This Summer School targets Humanities scholars, librarians and students who have already acquired a working knowledge of digital scholarly editing, especially TEI encoding, and wish to go further. If the encoding is a crucial step, that translates the modelisation of a text or document into a computer-readable form, scholars need to put this encoding to good use by displaying, processing and analysing it. To this end, it is necessary to master other technologies, which are often more difficult to learn, with much rarer training opportunities.

During this week-long school, the participants will learn how to display, transform and process a scholarly XML edition, with the aim of becoming able to work on their own editions with the latest digital methods.

The week will be organised as follows:

  • a “main course” (all the morning sessions), centered on XSLT (eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformation), a powerful language especially designed to work with XML;
  • a few “sides”, or workshops, will be offered during the afternoon sessions, to introduce the participants to more specialised technologies and solutions allowing them to enhance a scholarly edition (geographical data, linguistic tools, network analysis, etc.)

We invite applications from scholars, students (Master level and beyond), librarians, archivists and other research professionals involved in the production and valorisation of scholarly digital editions. The selection committee particularly invites applicants from Central and Eastern Europe.

Bursaries

The participation in the Summer school programme is free, and in addition, selected applicants will receive a bursary: DARIAH’s Humanities at Scale programme will cover the cost of their travel and accommodation, up to a maximum of 500 EUR (participants will be refunded, up to 500 EUR, after the training school and upon presentation of the receipts).

Venue

The Summer school will be hosted by the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, in the historical centre of Prague.

How to apply?

To apply, please fill in this online form: https://goo.gl/forms/lqUd5O5BnLzB6ZOH3

Applications are welcome until 10 June 23:00 GMT

Digital History Summer School 2017

The University of Lausanne and infoclio.ch are pleased to announce that a Digital History Summer School will take place at the University of Lausanne, from the 20th to the 23rd of June 2017.

**Registration is now open** Please visit our website at http://www.dhsummerschool.ch/?page_id=762

Why Organize a 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. The first three days of the Summer School will alternate lectures and workshops. Courses will be held in plenary sessions, whereas workshops take place in smaller groups. Lectures will tackle crucial epistemological or theoretical problems, while workshops allow participants to learn technical skills by working hands-on with historical data on their own personal computer. On its last day, the Summer School will host a so-called „datasprint“?a hackathon based on data. What is a hackathon, you ask? A hackathon is originally a gathering of developers organized by team around project bearers with the objective of producing a prototype application in a few hours. In our case, the datasprint will be an opportunity to put into practice the technical skills learned during the Summer School. Teams will choose a research topic, and then collaboratively collect data about it. They will then continue by interpreting the gathered data, and finally attempt to develop a historical narrative based on said data.
