How to participate


As modern digital technologies are rapidly developing, so are scholarly tools of textual analysis. In this seminar participants will be introduced to a wide range of tools and approaches to textual scholarship that employ new technological solutions and breakthroughs. Participants will also discuss opportunities and challenges connected to the field of digital humanities in general, as well as important issues related to the rapidly changing landscape of scholarly publication, including questions regarding open access. As in all ATTR seminars participants will also discuss their ongoing doctoral dissertation work with each other.

Seminar guide (.pdf) 

Central to all ATTR seminars and summer schools are the PhD fellows’ own presentations of papers based on their dissertation work, with prepared responses by other PhD fellows. 

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of ATTR, the focus of the discussions will be primarily on methodological matters and interdisciplinary insights.

The PhD seminars are important means to the ATTR learning goals:

  • Writing and presentation skills: The seminars aim not only at providing a setting for constructive discussions relating to thesis work, but also at preparing the candidates for life after their dissertations. ATTR thus aims to hone students’ presentation and writing skills, skills that may be useful for development of research projects for which funding can be sought from, e.g., ERC and RCN.
  • Methodology: The objective of ATTR is to create a venue where interpretive methodologies can be critically discussed, evaluated, and developed, so as to broaden the candidates’ perspectives and heighten the quality of their analyses.
  • Networking: In all its activities, the creation of an interdisciplinary network of young scholars in order to ensure the highest possible academic quality of PhD education is a central goal of ATTR.
