Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, 28 October 2016

The third annual Digital Humanities Day (DHD) will take place on 28 October 2016 in Groningen. The aim of the DHD is to bring together researchers of various humanities disciplines and offer a platform to discuss ongoing or new research in the field of digital humanities. Patrik Svensson, Professor in the Humanities and Information Technology at Umeå University (Sweden) and former director of the HUMLab, is the invited speaker.

Call for Papers – deadline 30 September

The Groningen Centre for Digital Humanties invites scholars to submit abstracts for this year’s Digital Humanities Day. We are interested in short presentations that address research topics in a humanities discipline using digital data, methods and tools.

Proposals should be written in English and should not exceed one A4-sized page and include title, authors, affiliation and email. The abstracts will be presented as a book of abstracts in electronic format. The deadline for abstracts is the 30rd September 2016 and need to be submitted in PDF-format using the Easychair system .

About the Centre

The Groningen Centre for Digital Humanities provides a vibrant research climate for researchers working at the intersections of computer science and the humanities. In order to expand the traditional scope of the humanities, researchers from various disciplines cooperate in the Groningen Centre for Digital Humanities. It promotes a multi- and interdisciplinary approach to foster innovative research and to fuse the strengths of humanities research with those of computer and information science. While new methods will be developed to analyze newly established big data sets, ranging from text corpora to digitized archives, audiovisual media and social media content, theoretical reflection is necessary to give findings meaning in historical and cultural contexts.
