The very first Baltic Summer School of Digital Humanities (BSSDH 2018) offers an introductory crash-course to the text mining methods, use of digital tools and resources in humanities and social sciences. The programme is co-taught by an international team of researchers and practitioners of digital humanities and social sciences and is delivered in a form of lectures and practical workshops covering:
- corpus analysis
- computational stylistics
- data journalism
- GIS in the Humanities
- data visualization.
The Baltic Summer School of Digital Humanities is aimed at students and researchers of humanities and social sciences, library and archives professionals.

After successful completion of the summer course, students will be awarded 3 ECTS by the University of Latvia.
Registration fee for all participants is 50 EUR. It should be paid during the registration from May 2 to June 30 (see How to apply). Participants will need to cover their own lunch and accommodation expenses.
