Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In recent years we see an increasing number of initiatives and projects which use digital methods and techniques in the fields of Middle Eastern Studies. Yet, given the area and period of time covered by the Ottoman Empire, the usage of digital methods faces particular challenges (multitude of scripts, languages, cultural identities, diverse historical periods) that the lecture intends to address.

This lecture aims to first give an overview of the history of DH in Ottoman Studies and then present and discuss DH technologies, tools and methods in connection with Ottoman Studies.

Assessment and permitted materials

Specific DH technologies, tools and methods in Ottoman Studies will be examined and assigned and students will operate and present projects based on these technologies, tools and methods.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Attendance (max. 3 times missing) and participation in the class as well as timely completion of the project assignment.

The final grade consists of two parts:
1) 50% participation
2) 50% project

Examination topics

The topic of the projects must comprise at least one of the following areas; textual analysis, network analysis, spatial analysis.

Reading list

There will be at least 3 works (book, book chapter, article, blog article or directly a DH project itself) assigned each week in connection with the lecture topic, which will be made available on the course Moodle.
