11th EUROPEAN SUMMER UNIVERSITY IN DIGITAL HUMANITIES "CULTURE & TECHNOLOGY" - 3rd to 13th of August 2021 UNIVERSITY OF LEIPZIG
As some may remember the 11th European Summer University in Digital Humanities “Culture & Technology” to be held last summer in Leipzig had to be postponed to 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is to inform you that given that the DAAD has agreed to support the European Summer University again for two years, we have decided to hold ESU DH 2021 from the 3rd to 13th of August 2021 in Leipzig as promised. It will be organised together with the Forum Digital Humanities Leipzig (FDHL).
Although we are aware that the pandemic may hold still many challenges in store for us all, we are planning to meet with everybody in person in Leipzig. Should this not be possible we will put a plan B in place which could either mean having a hybrid event or, if the worst comes to the worst, a fully virtual one. We will just have to see what the next months bring.
As in former years the Summer University is supposed to take place across 11 whole days. The intensive programme should consist of workshops, teaser sessions, public lectures, regular project presentations, a poster session and a panel discussion.
At the moment a new ConfTool is being installed. All users of ESU’s 2020 ConfTool as well as all the application documents submitted there in 2020 will be transferred to the new installation.
As soon as the new installation is ready and we have updated ESU’s website with information about the workshops which will be offered, we will come back with more information.
With my very best wishes
