December 7 - December 9
The European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH) is holding its inaugural conference in the Arts Millennium Building and The Moore Institute at NUI Galway from 7 to 9 December 2018. The general theme of the conference is “Data in Digital Humanities”. Keynote speakers include Elisabeth Burr (University of Leipzig) and Leonid Borodkin (Lomonosov Moscow State University). A roundtable session on the theme of data and digital humanities will be curated by Christof Schöch (University of Trier). Over 130 papers will be presented on issues such as the transformation of data for cultural heritage, use of data analytics in literary studies, natural language processing, data visualisation and modelling, and much more. Local committee chair Sean Ryder says: “We look forward to welcoming European and other international researchers who are working at the cutting edge of digital humanities research and practice. This conference will help us to understand the new roles that data is playing in arts and humanities scholarship and teaching, and its impact in the worlds of cultural heritage and the curation of knowledge.
