DHDarmstadt Teaching

The Department of Linguistics and Literary Studies has a long tradition of teaching what is known as humanities computing or, more recently, digital humanities. Since the mid-1990s, the department has been offering courses in corpus and computational linguistics and computer-assisted language learning and teaching (CALL / CALT) within its degree programmes in English studies (Magister Artium Anglistik, Joint Bachelor or Arts Anglistik, Master of Education English and the Master of Arts Linguistic and Literary Computing). Additionally, we have been opening up courses for students from other degrees across the univeristy as part of the open course catalogue. Our overview lecture on Digtia Humanities in the MA programme "Linguistic and Literary Computing" is regularly attended not only by students of this course of studies, but also by students from a wide range of other degrees across the university.

Corpus and computational linguistics have thus been a mainstay of the English studies degree programs for a long time and have a strong tradition especially in British empirical linguistics, but have gained momentum in the past 20 years due to technological and methodological advances in the humanities. At our department, students are offered digital humanities courses also in other areas of textual studies such as digital editions, electronic lexicography and others. Especially in our Masters program Linguistic and Literary Computing, students are given the opportunity to study corpus and computational linguistics as well as digital philology and textual studies.

We strongly believe in building our DH education on a strong philological, linguistic and literary studies foundation and in teaching philological theory and methodology in close conjunction with considerations and practices of the role of the digital in the philologies. DH education at Darmstadt, especially in the Master of Arts Linguistic and Literary Computing is strongly research based such that students are initiated to state of the art practices and tools from a very early stage.

Students and researchers interested in the Master of Arts Linguistic and Literary Computing should refer to the program homepage at:


YouTube Videos introducing the DH can be found on this site at Digital Humanities in Videos.
