Workshop Public-Private Initiatives in Digital Humanities

Roadmap towards a joint center in digital humanities


On 21 and 22 March 2013 all 13 digital humanities projects by UvA, VU and KNAW will present themselves at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS).

There will be demos of each project followed by feedback by an expert team. The second day of the workshop will be fully devoted to the future of public-private collaborations in the (digital) humanities as well as of the joint collaboration of KNAW, UvA and VU in CHAT (Center for Humanities and Technology).

Topics will include but not limited to: How to deal with Big Data, Fuzzy Data and Incomplete Data in Digital Humanities? What focus do we have now, and how do relations with industry fit in this? Should we move towards a “PanAmsterdams zwaartepunt”?
