Digital Humanities Evolving: Past, Present, and Future

Taipei, 29 November-1 December 2017. Call for papers – deadline 16 July.

While the debates over the definition, landscape, and scale of digital humanities continue, digital humanists seem to have a consensus that digital humanities are constantly evolving and facing new challenges. Take big data as an example. Technologies automatically and instantly archive what people say, what people do, and even what people think. The rich information provided by big data leads humanities research to a new frontier that can hardly be imagined by classical humanists. However, the self-archived data contain real, virtual, and even fake contents. How shall digital archivists and digital humanists embrace big data and big data analytics? Alternatively, will the ubiquitous digitization transform human culture and make “digital humanities” simply become “humanities”?

Themes
