Introduction

The DH Course in Mainz introduced participants to the theoretical, methodological, and practical aspects of Digital Humanities. By discussing, then, topics ranging from the changesd igital technologies bring to the very identity of a scholar to the process of digitisation of their materials and research.The latter aspect is, furthermore, discussed within the context of digitisation of personal data and materials and at the same time by integrating one’s own data to larger systems. In light of the second set of presentations by Anna Aschauer, Ilenia Laudito, and Marco Büchler various digital tools have been presented to participants that allow them to re-discover their materials, contextualise it in a broader framework and introduce a macroscopic approach in their research.
