Wrestling Lecture “Perspectives of the Digital Humanities and Social Sciences”

“Is the digitalization of the humanities finally beginning?” This question, recently asked in the Süddeutsche Zeitung, must be answered by the fact that the process of digitising the humanities, social sciences and cultural studies has progressed so far since the first beginnings in the 1960s that it has given rise to a new field of science in its own right. The scientific community around the world is struggling to define “digital humanities”; chairs and courses of study have established the term in the university landscape.
In the series of lectures, various positions and perspectives will be put up for discussion and individual projects from the fields of digital humanities and social sciences will be presented. The speakers provide insights into the breadth of international research and into current scientific discourses.
With the internationally staffed lecture series, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences, established in 2014, will introduce itself to the FAU and the interested public in the winter semester 14/15 (www.izdigital.fau.de). Renowned experts will discuss various aspects and perspectives in the two central topic areas of the new interdisciplinary center:

  • What new methodological approaches open up digital techniques for research in the humanities and social sciences, what questions can be addressed with them?
  • What are the effects, potentials and risks of digital technologies in science and society?

Time: Thursday, 18-20 hrs
Location: Kollegienhaus, Room 0.016, Universitätsstraße 15, 91054 Erlangen, Germany
