Digital Humanities, Workshop

Algorithmic methods are increasingly infiltrating the humanities through the use of computer-based research. This leads to fundamental changes with regard to methods employed, and consequently methodological approaches in the humanities. Leading to questions of how the different disciplines get shaped through these methods. How do we frame our methodological approaches?

That’s why the focus of this event is on methodologies. By bringing together professionals working with very different methodologies we explore this topic on behalf of digital humanities.

The interdisciplinary digital humanities event DH-CH@ISR brings together international experts, doctoral students, advanced researchers, and cultural heritage institutions.

DHCH@ISR provides a unique opportunity for scholars and researchers to discuss multifaceted perspectives of the Digital Humanities, to broaden their horizons of digital practices and humanities methodologies. Supporting their thinking about Digital Humanities approaches to the different disciplines but also the arts and heritage and bring them in exchange with internationally involved institutions.

In collaboration with the University of Basel, DH-CH Digital Humanities and ESA.
