Netlab PHD Workshop in Web archiving
Please notice: This workshop will not be cancelled due to Corona virus precautions, but an online solution (video conference) may be applied with short notice if the situation in August demands it. Participants will be notified and get directions for how to participate if this becomes relevant. The NetLab PhD workshop in web archiving will include presentations on the necessity and challenges of preserving web content (which disappears rapidly, and must be preserved as a resource), of the underlying technologies in web content and it's preservation, and on how archived web content may differ from the online originals.

Research Design and Applied Data Analysis for Quantitative Social Sciences and Education Studies.
The course introduces applied quantitative data analyses with an emphasis on the connection between data analyses and research design. It will be a short introduction into different data analysis methods, including the following topics: Research Design in Quantitative Social Research Basics of research design and problems of descriptive and causal inference in the social sciences. Multivariate data analysis: Linear regression models and models for categorical data. This session introduces and refreshes the basics of multiple linear regression and regression models for categorical data such as binary, ordinal, multinomial or count data. Causal inference in the social sciences

Relational Ontology in Luther, Kierkegaard, and Løgstrup: Investigating the ‘in-between’ Self and Other
In this PhD and postdoctoral course, we will examine theological and philosophical anthropology as ‘relational ontology’. This notion characterises Martin Luther’s anthropology and models how the Danish Lutheran theologians and philosophers Søren Kierkegaard and K. E. Løgstrup understand human existence. According to Luther, holiness lies not in the category of substance but rather in relation: “Nec Sanctitas est in praedicamento substantiae sed relationis” (WA 40 II, 354,3-4). This sentence in Luther’s 1532 lecture on Psalm 51 summarises his anthropology, which breaks with Aristotelian substance metaphysics and claims that human beings gain their existence not in and through themselves, but outside of themselves in their trusting relationships with God and their neighbours.

Writing educational history. Developing new methodologies.
Informed by recent theories of affects, relations, materialities, and entanglements the field of the history of education is moving in new directions. Discipline and order used to be the object of study but this is now replaced by attention to the complex and chaotic processes of coming into being where a myriad of actors are involved and where materiality, affects and education are intertwined.

Archaeological and Historical Network Research
Network research refers to the use of networks data (nodes and links) to visualize and explore historical or archaeological sources, or to represent relational theories about past phenomena. The approach is now firmly established in archaeology and history, with an increasing number of case studies published each year. But dedicated training in this technical specialism is very rare in archaeological and historical postgraduate education.

Improve your research
The overall aim of the course is to strengthen the general academic skills of first year PhD students at the Faculty of Arts. In order to help the student get a comprehensive view of the research within their field, the two-day course will give the doctoral student and understanding of how to navigate digital resources, how to conduct an academic search, and how to use the tools available to follow the latest research. Conducting a literature review also involves critically reading and writing about prior scholarly work pertinent to a research project. The course includes an introduction to this subject.

TRUTH and TRUTHFULNESS: Biblical, Philosophical, and Theological Approaches.
The ideas of truth and truthfulness have led to the question ‘What is truth?’ – including the development of a number of truth theories and truth criteria. One of the most famous is the correspondence theory according to which a belief is true if it corresponds to a fact or, in other words, if an adaequatio intellectus et rei is manifest. However, if the ‘thing’ or object of knowledge in question is elusive, the human mind or consciousness cannot easily identify whether or to what extent a proposition corresponds to a certain state of affairs.
