The University of Sheffield's Humanities Research Institute with the support of the Network of Expert Centres and Centernet has announced its Call for Papers for a three-day conference to be held in Sheffield during 6th - 8th September 2012.
The Digital Humanities Congress is a new conference which will be held in Sheffield every two years. Its purpose is to promote the sharing of knowledge, ideas and techniques within the digital humanities.
Digital humanities is understood by Sheffield to mean the use of technology within arts, heritage and humanities research as both a method of inquiry and a means of dissemination. As such, proposals related to all disciplines within the arts, humanities and heritage domains are welcome.
The conference will take place at the University's new residential conference facility, The Edge.
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)
