The Department of Near Eastern Studies of the University of Vienna is hosting the international workshop “Digital humanities and Ottoman studies. State of the art, challenges, perspectives and prospective research”. The workshop is organised by the Chair of Turkish and Ottoman Studies at the University of Vienna and computer scientists from the Computer Science Department, (Research Group "Computerphilology") at the University of Hamburg who are currently working together on advanced digital humanities (DH) methods to be applied in Ottoman studies. The workshop organisers are members of the Mixed Methods project HerCoRe – Hermeneutic and Computer‐based Analysis of Reliability, Consistency and Vagueness in Historical Texts ( The Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ACDH‐CH) is the major collaborating partner for the workshop. The workshop is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation within its ‘Mixed Methods’ in theHumanities program. In recent years, the number of initiatives and projects that use digital methods and techniques has been increasing. However, given the area and period of time covered by the Ottoman Empire, the usage of digital methods faces particular challenges in Ottoman studies (a multitude of scripts, languages, cultural identities, diverse historical periods). The “Digital humanities and Ottoman studies” workshop brings together more than 40 researchers from the fields of Ottoman studies, computer science and digital humanities based in Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey and the US. The participants will discuss the potentials and challenges of digital Ottoman research.
