Language and Culture in a Digital Age

This profile area studies the application, development, and critical analysis of digital technologies and media in humanities and social science research. It also covers the manifestation of language, culture, and the transfer of knowledge and culture in a digital age.
All faculties involved collaborate to do cross-faculty and interdisciplinary work.
The profile area's aim is to promote research cooperations that enable researchers to analyse manifestations of language and culture in a digital age, to use procedures of digitalisation, and to evaluate its current impact. The area regards itself as a mediating level of communication between Computer Science and the Humanities and Social Sciences. Critically discussing methodological principles, establishing productive communication processes, and exploring new research and teaching methods and innovative publication opportunities are some of the researchers' main objectives.
Moreover, they strive to apply and improve methods of digitally representing and analysing sources belonging to the Humanities and Social Sciences (such as texts, pictures, and music). Another important aspect of this profile area's work is to study the effects of an increasing digitalisation on data and analyses, on processes concerning the transfer of knowledge and culture as well as on analyses of language use and acquisition in learning processes.
