The KU Leuven Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies is launching a call for applications for its ReIReS Course on “Digital Humanities and Historical Religious Studies”, which will be held at KU Leuven on March 30 – April 1, 2020, preceding, and in close partnership with the ReIReS Course organized at Turnhout.
The course organized by the KU Leuven Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies will concentrate on the digitization processes of medieval, modern, and contemporary historical sources and the diversified study of it; and on the possibilities and a number of best practices of DH tools. The course will benefit of the long-term multi- and interdisciplinary collaboration of historians, theologians, art historians, archivists; and welcomes applications of PhD students and postdocs in these fields.
The mornings of this course are focused on ongoing digitization projects of the Maurits Sabbe Library collections, including the projects of the Book Heritage Lab, the Centre for Capuchins in the Low Countries, and the Centre for the Study of the Second Vatican Council. In smaller groups the participants will be introduced to the collections and the opportunities and challenges of their digitization. In the afternoon short introductions and hands on sessions are provided on data-modeling, IIIF, text clustering through R and Python, and historical network research among others.
