GSA 2023: Teaching Digital Humanities in German Studies, Montreal (09.03.2023)

Deadline Abstract

Teaching Digital Humanities in German Studies

German Studies Association 47th Annual Conference
5-8 October, 2023, Le Centre Sheraton Montreal in Montréal, Quebec.

Panel sponsored by the GSA Digital Humanities Interdisciplinary Network

“How do I teach that to Humanities students?” The GSA Digital Humanities Network invites research papers, case studies, and explorations of best practices  on digital literacy, pedagogy, didactics and curricular reform in German Studies. Scholars at all career stages (graduate student to faculty) are invited to submit.  

Digital tools and methods are becoming part of the Humanities curriculum. Their application in the German Studies classroom, however, remains under construction, despite a variety of available books, tutorials, and online courses. Motivating Humanities students to learn digital research skills, managing preconceptions about technical abilities, and “first steps” frustrations can be challenging. For this panel, contributions on constructing meaningful and motivating DH course content for German Studies, examples of best practices for didactic scaffolding and staging in digital and programming skills sections of classes , enabling productive collaborative project work, managing learner groups with heterogeneous skills and expectations, and meaningful assessment and feedback, are especially encouraged. How do you turn humanities students from technical hesitation to self-empowered tinkering? Which skills, skill levels and methodological reflection should we regard as standard in DH? Contributions on including critical AI, productive inclusions of text-generating AI (e.g. ChatGPT), as well as case studies of (productive) failures teaching DH in the German classroom are encouraged. 

Any questions about this panel, its scope and format can be sent to Thorsten Ries ( and Fabian Offert (
