CfA – Postgraduate summer course “Cultures of Dissent in Eastern Europe (1945-1989): Research Approaches in the Digital Humanities”
Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, 15 July – 23 July, 2019
This 7-day seminar in digital humanities research methods is designed to expose a new generation of scholars in Cold War history and culture to methods of analysis and discovery involving computational techniques. Designed and run by NEP4DISSENT(New Exploratory Phase in Research on East European Cultures of Dissent, nep4dissent.eu), COST Action 16213, the inspiration for the course is built around the transfer of knowledge from technologists and data scientists to humanists. In the course of the 7-day session the participants will have hands-on experience with the entire life cycle of a digital humanities project design, leading to a single, tangible outcome in the form of a fully searchable and interactive dataset usable for art-curatorial purposes.
No prior knowledge of any computational methods, or even data-driven approaches to research are expected from the participants. However, we will be targeting scholars, librarians/archivists, and art and cultural heritage curators, who can bring first-hand knowledge of the main research area.
First application deadline: February 14, 2019.
