The autumn school will offer a six-day introduction in English to best practices in digital scholarship (curation, legal issues, methodology), to the interdisciplinary foundations of the Digital Humanities (philology, literary criticism, history, art history, etc.), and to commonly used DH methods, tools and technologies (digitization, document analysis and text encoding, text mining, Geodata, XQuery, visualization, enhanced publications, etc.). The autumn school will host more than twenty lecturers from academic and research institutions in England, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Scotland, Sweden, and Switzerland, who represent a wide diversity of expertise and career paths within the Digital Humanities.
