ReIReS Offers Six Courses on Digital Humanities and Historical Religious Studies

As an innovating community, ReIReS has an extensive interest in education; understanding that it is only possible through education to effect concrete and ethical changes in academia and science.  Part of ReIReS’ innovative training programme are six courses on digital humanities and historical religious studies, coordinated by the Leibniz Institute for European History in Mainz. 

The courses are organised in collaboration with the Fondazione per le Scienze Religiose Giovanni XXIII in Bologna, the University of Sofia, KU Leuven, Brepols Publishers and the University of Hamburg. All courses are built upon the respective partner’s research traditions and strengths, resulting in a smooth, insightful, interesting and multidimensional breakthrough from traditional to digital research, manifesting the epistemological shift that Academia is currently going through.

Furthermore, the Educational Programme offered by ReIReS encapsulates hybrid models of all the various stages of digital research (such us digital tools, e-learning, digital editions etc.) within different academic fields and disciplines (such as history, philology, religion, and sub-disciplines as textual analysis, Slavonic studies, Jewish studies etc.) This renders ReIReS as a unique field for the conduction of multi- and interdisciplinary research, while at the same time a proper milieu for the introduction of both young and experienced scholars in digital humanities as an overlapping field with their prior academic background.

The courses are open to persons affiliated to ReIReS Partners and to max. 5 persons affiliated to institutions outside the consortium.

The courses are scheduled as follows:

  • Leibniz-Institut für Europäische Geschichte, Mainz: 21-23 January, 2019
  • Fscire Bologna: 3-5 July, 2019
  • University Sofia: 19-21 November, 2019
  • KU Leuven: 30 March-1 April, 2020
  • Brepols Publishers: 1-3 April 2020
  • University of Hamburg:  22-24 November 2020

More information on the first course in Mainz is expected shortly.
