EUS4011 – Digital Humanities: How To Read A Million Books? – Spring Term 2018

Increasingly, cultural text material is being captured and stored in electronic form. From literature and fiction, diaries, historical documents, public speeches and governmental documents, to emails, text messages, and social media, researchers from the humanities now have access to much larger amounts of text than ever before.

In this master course, students from European language, literature and culture as well as history will be introduced to the field of digital humanities, its core methods, history and emerging trends and learn how to describe, analyze, and interpret digitized text and explore research questions fundamental to literary, cultural and historical studies with cutting edge technology.

The goal is to encourage students to think about novel and creative ways they can apply these techniques to their own material and research questions, and to provide the skills necessary to apply the methods in their own research. Students will be encouraged to work in teams and help one another.

Provided doctoral students of all humanities disciplines – with a strong focus on textual primary sources – with both a comprehensive overview of the history of digital humanities and an introduction to dh technologies such as digitisation, text encoding and editing, analysing, interpreting and manipulation of textual data as well as visualisation and virtual display of humanities research.
