Interdisciplinary Networks in Heidelberg
Heidelberg University strives to provide its young researchers with the best possible conditions for interdisciplinary networking and research collaborations. We will present some of these opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange on this page.
The IDK is an open, interdisciplinary platform in the humanities and social sciences through which doctoral students can present and discuss their projects in various forms.
The IDK also provides opportunities to discuss and exchange ideas about financing, publication options, work methods and other topics. External speakers are invited to give presentations on selected topics. The working languages of the IDK are German and English.
► Interdisziplinäres Doktorandinnen-Kolloquium
Das Interdisziplinäre Forum digitaler Textwissenschaften ist ein Treffpunkt für NachwuchswissenschaftlerInnen, die einmal im Monat Theorie und Praxis der digitalen Textwissenschaften erörtern möchten und Interesse haben, die Anwendungsgebiete in Bild- und Musikwissenschaften kennenzulernen.
Digitale Methoden der Textanalyse haben es in den letzten Jahren ermöglicht, immer mehr Neues in Texten zu entdecken und Altes in größere Kontexte einzubetten. Doch wie lassen sich die interdisziplinären Ansätze der Digital Humanities methodologisch in der Wissenschaftstheorie verorten? Sind sie ein zukünftiger neuer wissenschaftlicher Ansatz neben den traditionellen Methoden der Literatur-, Sprach-, Kultur- und Geschichtswissenschaft? Welche Anwendungsbereiche finden sich an der Universität Heidelberg?
