Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - 7:00pm to Friday, September 7, 2012 - 7:00pm

University of Sheffield, 6 - 8 September 2012

The University of Sheffield's Humanities Research Institute with the support of the Network of Expert Centres and Centernet is delighted to invite you to a new conference intended to promote the sharing of knowledge, ideas and techniques within the digital humanities.

At Sheffield we understand the digital humanities to mean the use of technology within arts, heritage and humanities research as both a method of inquiry and a means of dissemination. We’re therefore excited to have a varied programme with speakers from disciplines across the arts, humanities and heritage domains.

Keynote Speakers

  • Professor Andrew Prescott (Head of Department, Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London)
  • Professor Lorna Hughes (University of Wales Chair in Digital Collections at the National Library of Wales)
  • Professor Philip Ethington (Professor of History and Political Science, University of Southern California and Co-Director of the USC Center for Transformative Scholarship)
