GHI research fellow Matthew Hiebert awarded DAAD Scholarship to attend 8th European Summer University in Digital Humanities

GHI research fellow Matthew Hiebert was awarded a DAAD Scholarship to participate in “Culture and Technology,” the 8th annual European Summer University for Digital Humanities (ESU) held at the University of Leipzig in July. The ESU facilitates project-oriented collaboration and networking across individual disciplines, and fosters questions about the consequences and implications of applying computational methods and tools to cultural artifacts. His sixth time participating in the event, Dr. Hiebert will be focusing this year on legal and ethical issues surrounding data management, through a workshop organized by Pawel Kamocki (IDS Mannheim & Westfälische-Wilhelms-Universität, Münster, Germany / Université Paris Descartes, France) and Thorsten Trippel (Eberhard-Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany).
