Digital Humanities Coffee Talks

The University and State Library Saxony-Anhalt ist starting a lecture series called „Digital Humanities Coffee Talks – digitale Hilfsmittel für die Geisteswissenschaften“ this semester. The series will take place monthly during the lecture period, to present one DH-tool for working with texts or images in a relaxed environment. Coffee Talk isn’t just a term, though: Coffee and Cookies will be supplied, though we’ll be happy if you could bring your own cup.

The first session will take place on 20 April, 6 pm on the topic “Voyant Tools – Analysis of Text Corpora through ‘Distant reading'”. Further information can be found on Stud.IP.
