Digital humanities is an area of research at the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities, e.g., history, philosophy, linguistics, literature, art, archaeology, music, as well as cultural and social sciences. Digital humanities scholars use computational methods to answer existing research questions in humanity sciences or to pioneer new approaches. The goal of the seminar is to get an overview of the algorithms that lie at the core of these computational methods.
The written reports of some of the participants of the seminar have been collected in a booklet.
At the first, preliminary meeting, the topics will be briefly presented and assigned to the participants. Afterwards each participant explores their topic using the given literature as a starting point. After a couple of weeks each participant gives a 5-minute short presentation on their topic. During the semester we will then have the main presentations on separate days. By the end of the semester and after a peer review phase, each participant has to hand in a written report of 12–15 pages in LaTeX. The overall grade depends on the main presentation (60%) and the written report (40%).
Please use LaTeX for composing the written report with this template: template.zip.
