Events, courses & workshops

The SLUB TextLab offers a wide range of events and courses designed to make it easier for you to work with and on texts. In addition to questions relating to the writing process, the programme also covers literature research, digital humanities and collaborative work with texts.

Finding literature on your academic topic, citing correctly, analysing texts with specialist software or enriching them with information: we offer events and workshops on topics such as these at regular intervals. There are also many one-off events, such as readings by authors. We work with cooperation partners for a number of events, including the Writing Centre and the Green Office at TU Dresden, the Stadtgärten e. V. association and the Dresden University Sports Centre.


Our next events

From readings to writing marathons

With our events, workshops and courses, we offer comprehensive support in all aspects of academic writing and dealing with specialised literature. However, we also look at writing from a broader perspective. Workshops on creative writing, the connection between nature and writing and readings are also part of our programme.
