More or less every 2nd day a lecture directed not only at the participants of the Summer University, but also at other academics, students and the interested public take place.

These Lectures are given by renowned specialists in Digital Humanities (in the broad sense) and are designed to provide a theoretical and historical framework for the intensive workshops and the project presentations.

The lectures take place in the lecture hall of the Bibliotheca Albertina
