invite for a conference:

DIGITAL HUMANITIES – THEORY AND PRACTICE

November 26-27, 2015, University of Marie Curie-Skłodowska, Lublin

 Digital humanities constitutes the most rapidly developing research area. A vast number of innovative tools and methods for exploration of the contemporary digital culture and the digitized history have appeared within its realm. Achievements of the field remodel the work of a modern humanist – their methods, interpretation strategies, means of communication, ways of conducting research and presenting results.

By means of this conference we wish to enable researchers operating within this new optics to exchange their experiences and to promote the trend among researchers attached to traditional methods. In particular, we would like to focus on:

  1. Digital tools for humanists
  2. Research methods
  3. Theoretical consideration of digital humanities
  4. Sample projects held within the domain
  5. Humanistic education in the digital era

The second day of the conference will include workshops (RemiksLab) on tools and apps, devoted to digital humanists and led by qualified practicioners from all over the Poland.

Both plenary and profiled discussions will be broadcast live and translated simultaneously. The program will also include a panel discussion on the development of digital humanities, and building a definition of digital humanities to be published on Wikipedia.

The prospectus of the conference will take the forms of a reviewed e-book and a film.

To submit your proposal of presentation please contact us on polska@gmail.com using the application form by June 30, 2015.
