The CENDARI project (Collaborative European Digital Archive Infrastructure) invites applications to its second summer school, to be held 20-24 July in Prague on the theme “Researching Medieval Culture in a Digital Environment.”

The interdisciplinary five-day program is geared especially toward early-career historians and other scholars (doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows) in Medieval Studies as well as toward archivists, librarians, and e-scientists that engage with or specialize in this time period. No prior experience with digital research methods is required. Participants will need their own laptops.

Through a number of hands-on sessions, participants will learn how to enhance their research with tools such as Abbreviationes, Classical Text Editor, and Manuscriptorium. They will also have the opportunity to experiment with the integrative CENDARI Virtual Research Environment. Lectures on the fundamentals of Digital Humanities and its prospects for Medieval Studies as well as field trips to cultural heritage sites in Prague will complete the program. The school will be held at the attractive Old Town venue of the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The Institute of Philosophy and the Collegium Europaeum of Charles University are co-organizers of this event.

To apply, fill out the application form available from this website: The closing date for applications is 15 April 2015. Successful applicants will be notified of decision by 30 April and asked to accept a position or not by 15 May. A number of travel bursaries (€300) will be available on a competitive basis to early career researchers in order to defray the costs of attending the school. Funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme for Research, bursaries can be applied for directly through the application form and will be awarded on the basis of the applicant’s ranking during the evaluation process.
