Titleimage: Digital Humanities

Welcome to the home of Digital Humanities at the University of Bern! The program was begun in August 2013 and we offer a selection of courses targeted at scholars of all levels, from undergraduates to post-doctoral researchers.

Digital Humanities research is already well-established in several projects throughout the Faculty of Humanities at Bern, ranging through disciplines such as History, Philology, Linguistics, German Studies, Romance-language Studies, and Music. Ann overview of ongoing DH projects at the university will be provided here soon.

Alongside research, teaching is also an important aspect of DH @ Bern! Here you can get a sense of how digital humanities is presented in the classroom.

Networkanalysis with Nodegoat, the virtual research environment (30.01.2020)

This workshop adresses all the junior scientists of the Humanities (PhD Students, on requested also for Masterthesis). Prior Knowledge on networkanalysis is not necessary. Please bring a research question, also it is important, that everyone provides a written abstract of the project the participant is working on, together with the research question and the data availability (in written form).
In the first part of the workshop we will learn about the most important functions of Nodegoat. For example the web-based management of the research data aswell as the visualisations for maps, networks and time series. We will then present different concepts of network research. Those will be discussed and reflected on the participats respective project. Based on this, we will create our own data model in Nodegoat in the second part, adapted to the research question we have brought along. At the end of the day, all participants will have a custom-made research environment that they can continue to use for their project.
