Call for Proposals

In the spirit of German-Norwegian cooperation in academic research,
the Henrik-Steffens Chair at the Department of Northern European Studies
of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin is happy to invite early career
scholars (MA and PhD students) to come to Berlin. Here, a three-day
workshop on digital methods in the humanities with a focus on, but not
limited to, the creation and use of linguistic digital resources in Old Norse
will take place.

We welcome proposals for topics and themes for the working sessions
to be discussed.
Proposals of no more than 200 words should be submitted by e-mail no
later than 15 March 2019. Please submit your proposals to:
Date: Wednesday, 3 July 2019 – Friday, 5 July 2019
Venue: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

For many years now Old Norse philology has benefitted from and been
a driving field in the development of digital methods. Through several large
scale and long term projects, a large amount Old Norse source material
has been made easily accessible to scholars and the general public alike.
The field has established leading competence in many aspects of digital
methods and historic sources, and ongoing research is ever expanding.
Since many projects with similar methods and/or research interests
are currently being worked on alongside each other, the aim of the workshop
is to create a platform where common ideas on standards and practices
can be drafted. Therefore, especially early career scholars are invited
to participate.
The format of the workshop is modelled after Scrum, a method used
in software development. By combining a thorough planning session with
intense work sessions, we aim to produce a paper ready for publication
over the course of the workshop.
Proposals for sessions will be grouped by broader themes beforehand.

The preliminary program will be available soon.

Preparations in progress
We have received your submissions and are working to finalize the program.
The program will be published here and we will get in touch with participants
regarding their stay in Berlin. We are looking forward to a great workshop!
