Participants will have manifold possibilities to discuss their individual research interests and projects with experts in the international research network and gain valuable insight into the collaborative workings of the Trier Center for Digital Humanities. Alongside the scholarly practices, collaboration and positive group dynamics shall be enhanced through various social events.
