The new interdisciplinary field of the doctoral program Digital Lingustics is a comparatively new interdisciplinary scientific profile combining the skills and knowledge of linguistics, digital communication, information science, and social sciences. This interdisciplinary field employs a methodologically diverse approach to analyzing technology-mediated communication that promotes the understanding of language in a digital society. By applying the methodological approaches from the humanities, social sciences and information sciences, the doctoral candidates can analyze, understand, and explain all kinds of written, spoken, and digital language content, as well as the social and ethical aspects of digital media. Digital linguistics deals with language in the digital age from the humanist and social-scientific perspectives, by guaranteeing human- and society-friendly digital communication, which is becoming ever more technologically assisted. In addition to understanding all aspects of constructing, developing, and using intelligent language solutions, the emphasis is also on critical reflection on their impact on language, communication, and society.
