Summer school

Digital Methods in the Humanities, UNIL, 2023

The summer school on “Digital Methods in the Humanities” is organised at UNIL on 12-15 June 2025. 

It aims at introducing undergraduate and postgraduate/researchers to a range of digital methods that are currently applied in the humanities and social sciences.

Data will be viewed from different (but inextricably interconnected) perspectives, notably (a) preparation and architecture/infrastructure, (b) data treatment/analysis, and (c) societal impact and outreach. In the course of the summer school, all of these aspects will be paid attention to, both with regard to application and critical assessment.

This will be done in the form of lectures with Q&A and hands-on work in interactive workshops.

Workshops and courses

DaSCH Workshop UNIBE 2022

The DaSCH workshop in Bern in 2022 gave the participants an insight into the current state of the tools and the goals of DaSCH. The workshop was divided into two parts: In the morning, participants were informed about the vision, goals and current projects of DaSCH. In the afternoon two experts introduced DSP, the new platform of DaSCH.

The participants thus received a theoretical and practical introduction to the tools of the Swiss National Data and Service Center for the Humanities (DaSCH).
