The digital humanities have been largely debated and are currently a wellestablished branch of knowledge with specific departments, research centres, journals and a growing community gathered around several national an international associations. The digital humanities have a growing impact on teaching, researching and on dissemination in the humanities, and are nowadays an almost mandatory approach for new research projects and for young researchers curriculum.  

This summer school aims at providing concrete answers to specific needs and challenges emerging from projects carried out by master and PhD students, and post-doctoral researchers in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

The workshops planned will be delivered by qualified international scholars and professionals aiming to improve and transform, trough theoretical analysis and technological resources, the specific research challenges of the attendees.

Workshops will be organized in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment to:

  • Focus the Digital Humanities approach on questions raised by students, scholars and professionals;
  • Facilitate the choice of methods, tools and techniques;
  • Shape the research outcomes trough a digital environment;
  • Improve collaborative research and information sharing.

“Tailored to what you need” is the principle that guides and inspires this summer school structured in the following interconnected workshops:

1. Network analysis for historical and archaeological data

2. Spatial visualisation of historical and archaeological data
