Einstein Circle „Digital Humanities“

The Einstein Circle is dedicated to strengthening, structuring and further developing Berlin's position in the field of Digital Humanities. The term "Digital Humanities" refers to all methods of computer-supported recording, analysis and communication of sources in the humanities. 

Excellent research in the humanities is no longer confined to the pages of dusty books. From the 3D scanning of an ancient text source to the sociological study of Twitter, digital research in the humanities is becoming increasingly important. On February 28, 2014, the Einstein Circle hosted an interdisciplinary workshop on this topic as part of a series of events at Freie Universität Berlin.

Under the leadership of Humboldt University, the Circle brought together for the first time Berlin institutions already active in this future-oriented field, including the German Archaeological Institute and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science.
