Over on the dighumlab.dk website we have a launch tomorrow, free admission! I have 15 minutes to speak about DIGHUMLAB and tools and sevices to help digital humanists, especially those starting off with traditional historical and heritage/basd backgrounds, phew!
09.45 History and Cultural Heritage
Projektleder Erik Champion, DIGHUMLAB
The talk will provide a short overview of digital humanities research, particularly tools, methods, and data, currently or about to be used in the fields of history and cultural heritage.
I thought I might briefly mention
- Issues and debates in the Digital Humanities and where DIGHUMLAB stand.
- DIGHUMLAB goal and mission statement.
- There are new proposals for centers, even as we speak! For example at Princeton!
- Some famous and useful case studies, tools and methods such as Programming for Historians, bamboo DiRT, and some publishing services: commentpress, open edition, and the reputed and proposed humanities counterpart to PLOSone.
- European organizations, DARIAH, CLARIN, NeDiMAH, Telearc, etc.. and wider afield, organizations like HASTAC and http://www.arts-humanities.net.
- If I have time *I won’t, I might mention the latest book, my next book project entitled Critical Gaming, the Handbook of Virtuality, and some past case studies.
