Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course focuses on both the conceptual content and the methodological approaches of the participants’ doctoral research projects. On the basis of readings (mainly) concerned with data analysis in the digital age we will engage in discussions on the role of language, linguistics, and linguistic information processing in the era of the so-called "digital humanities". The course will focus on both the perspective of the users and the perspective of the builders of digital tools for (linguistic) data analysis.

Assessment and permitted materials

This seminar basically consists of discussion sessions based on readings during which participants will assume various roles. Besides regular and active class participation in all discussion sessions, students must complete at least two the following assignments:
1) Oral presentation of a selected text or a particular tool/application/best practice example
OR
2) Preparation and presentation of critical questions with regard to this text/the presentation.
OR
3) Assumption of the role of an ‘expert’ in a discussion session (ideally in relation to your own project).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

- Regular and active participation
- Preparation and follow-up assigments
- Performing two of the three roles described above
