As in former years we offer a Teaser Session in each week of the European Summer University in Digital Humanities. The aim of teaser sessions is at least threefold:

a) to allow the participants of ESU DH C & T to get an idea of the variety of methods, tools and questions which make up the Digital Humanities beyond the workshops they have chosen,

b) to arouse the interest of colleagues and students of Leipzig university and beyond and foster local and international community building

c) to allow colleagues and researchers who are involved in specific projects but do not take part in the Summer University to consult with the specialists ESU DH C & T manages to bring together.

As the Summer University can only take place online this year, the format of the sessions needs to be different from other years when the Summer University takes place on-site in Leipzig.

The teaser sessions were recorded by the experts who teach the respective workshop. As the experts cannot be present because of time zone differences or because their workshop session coincides with the teaser session, for questions and discussions a Slack will be made available to the interested public, whereas the participants of the Summer University will use the Topia of the Summer University.
