SDC4Lit Lectures

Digital Archives, Research and Research Data Management

The Science Data Center for Literature project is situated in a broad research landscape including digital preservation, data management, natural language processing, digital humanities and humanities disciplines working with born digital material. The development of repositories, research questions, an analysis environment, a web archiving infrastructure and a platform that encompasses all of this needs this broad array of diverse expertise. 

We invited experts from the respective disciplines to enrich our internal dialog as part of a series of public lectures, enabling both interdisciplinary and subject-specific discussions.

The lectures will take place in the period of the summer semester 2021 as online meetings.

Registrations are not required to attend the event. The links to the conference rooms can be found on the pages of the respective presentations.
