Overview

The conference will feature posters, papers and panels. We invite proposals globally on all aspects of digital humanities, and especially encourage papers treating topics that deal with practices that aim to cross borders, for example, between academic fields, media, languages, cultures, organizations, and so on, as related to the field of digital humanities.

As creation of research data -- collection, feature extraction, annotation, and organization --  is a seminal component of all DH projects, means and modes of this data-creation have been handled in various ways as digital approaches have evolved. Recently, the focus on methods of collaborating in data creation has been renewed with the rapid growth of projects that are crowd-sourced on the Web. The re-emergence of data creation based on this approach provides a wider range of data, as it has the potential to include contributors who are not only researchers, but also members of the general public. Such a new possibility should be taken due advantage of, especially given the difficult situation for the humanities fields in the academy. This year we strongly encourage you to submit proposals about methods and problems in collaborative approaches for data collection, especially crowd sourcing and other forms of public engagement. With this as our suggested central focus, we nonetheless welcome papers on a broad range of DH topics. For example:

Research issues, including data mining, information design and modeling, software studies, and humanities research enabled through the digital medium; computer-based research and computer applications in literary, linguistic, cultural and historical studies, including electronic literature, public humanities, and interdisciplinary aspects of modern scholarship. Some examples might include text analysis, corpora, corpus linguistics, language processing, language learning, and endangered languages; the digital arts, architecture, music, film, theater, new media and related areas; the creation and curation of humanities digital resources; the role of digital humanities in academic curricula; The range of topics covered by Digital Humanities can also be consulted in the journal Digital Scholarship in the Humanities (http://dsh.oxfordjournals.org/), Oxford University Press.
