Welcome to the annual Baltic Summer School of Digital Humanities (BSSDH 2023)!

This year’s programme offers must-have introductory courses for digital humanists and digital social scientists who wish to come to grips with programming with Python, collecting web data, and network visualization. For the first time, an advanced Python class is also available. The course is co-taught by an international team of researchers and practitioners of digital humanities and digital social sciences coming from Latvia, Finland, Sweden, and Poland. As always, this will be a great opportunity to meet colleagues and mentors from other countries and explore different perspectives!

The programme includes workshops and lectures in:

  • programming with Python (basic and advanced tracks)

  • discourse analysis

  • digital literary studies

  • collecting web data

  • network visualisation

  • food computing

  • reading studies

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.
