Call for Applications! Summer Institute: Digital Humanities for Hellenic Studies – Working with Text

Princeton Athens Center in Athens, Greece

Current Princeton scholars (faculty, staff, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows) in the humanities, as well as graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the humanities currently enrolled at universities in Greece, are invited to apply for Summer Institute: Digital Humanities for Hellenic Studies – Working with Text.

The workshop will take place from June 25–28 at the Princeton Athens Center in Athens, Greece.

This workshop is for scholars curious about exploring digital humanities methods for analyzing the textual culture of the Greek world from antiquity to the present. ‘Texts’ can encompass medieval manuscripts and lyric poetry, social media posts and oral histories, graffiti and musical scores, and more. Topics covered at the workshop may include gathering textual corpora, text analysis, text encoding, Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR), machine learning/AI approaches, and/or others based on participant interest. Through seminar discussions, demos/instructional sessions, and individual project consultations, participants will understand the affordances and limits of emerging technologies for the study of text, while gaining hands-on experience with methods and tools to accelerate their own research.

The workshop is open to scholars with no technical background. Applicants must have a humanities research idea or project that would benefit from computational approaches and a topic engaging texts from the Greek world broadly conceived. Texts may be in Greek and/or any language relevant to the topic of study.

The application for the workshop is due on March 31.

This program is sponsored by the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University in collaboration with the Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton University; Princeton’s Manuscript, Rare Book and Archive Studies; the UNESCO Chair for Digital Methods on the Humanities and Social Sciences at the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB); the MSc Program in Digital Methods for the Humanities at AUEB; and the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH-EU).
