A conference on Digital Humanities Experiments #dhiha6 will be held in Paris on 11-12 June 2015. The conference is sponsored by the European Science Foundation – Scientific Review Group HUM and the Institut d’études avancées (IEA) de Paris.
The conference is organized by Mareike König, Suzanne Dumouchel, Lisa Bolz (all DHIP), Claudine Moulin (IEA/University Trier), Pierre Mounier (OpenEdition), and Anne Baillot (Humboldt University of Berlin).
The conference website explains the aims of the event: “This conference addresses the gap between the research culture with which Digital Humanists are equipped via their disciplinary backgrounds and the research culture they foster in this field. Why does experimentation play a crucial role in Digital Humanities? How does it contribute to define the relationship between method and research questions? Can we identify barriers which currently prevent Digital Humanities from developing their full potential, leaving little room for iteration, comparison or failure? The conference itself is conceived as an experimental set-up with labs, data experiments and round tables.”
I will be participating in the conference and leading a round table on “Interdisciplinary Experimentations.”
The Digital Humanities Experiments #dhiha6 program is available online.
