ReIReS Course: Digital Humanities and Religious Studies in Italy

The Fondazione per le scienze Religiose Giovanni XXIII in Bologna is pleased to announce the next ReIReS Course on digital humanities and religious studies, 3-5 July 2019 in Bologna. Especially – but not only – PhD students and postdocs are welcome, both from ReIReS partners and other institutions.

The course offers a perspective on excellence in Italian DH and on pioneering studies in the European and international context. In particular, it focuses on digital libraries and other features of Italian research, with special regard to religious studies. The expertise of the scholars offering lessons and training activities will be matched by theoretical and technical transfer on specific topics, such as analysis of Conciliar texts and Qur’anic palimpsests and manuscripts.
