Two themes running in the academic year 2021–2022

Courses within two themes are offered by the Doctoral School in the Humanities: Digital Humanities and Gender, Knowledge and Methodology. The remaining courses within Digital Humanities are offered in English, while the courses within Gender, Knowledge and Methodology are offered in Swedish, or in English if required.

Digital Humanities

Digital Humanities is the interdisciplinary academic field which develops, applies, and critically assesses computational methods and technologies in the humanities. This theme will give a wide-ranging introduction to current research in the digital humanities arena, with emphasis on digital methods and their practical applications and theoretical implications. Participants will have opportunities to develop applied skills relevant to their own projects, as well as reflecting on ethical issues and on how digital technologies impact research and knowledge-building.

Gender, Knowledge and Methodology

The theme Gender, Knowledge and Methodology introduces international research on feminist epistemology and methodology in order to broaden the PhD education and contribute to a high quality and topicality. A principal aim is to illuminate the interconnections between epistemology and methodological issues and contribute to critical reflexivity in the humanities. Three methodological strands in the feminist tradition that are applicable across a wide range of disciplines are given particular attention: creative academic writing, ethnography and historiography.
