Digital Humanities 2017 Conference

Co-organised by McGill University and the Université de Montréal, DH2017 is taking place on 8-11 August 2017 in downtown Montréal, Canada on the campus of McGill University. This is the premiere annual conference of the international Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). The theme of DH2017 is “Access/Accès”. Visit the conference website to find out more.

The European Digital Humanities is well represented among the participants and presenters at DH2017. There are several papers presenting European digital research from our colleagues in DARIAH-EU and PARTHENOS (see table below), and from CLARIN teams. We are also delighted to share a booth with DARIAH-EU at DH2017, which allows the conference attendees to get an insight into the organization of European research infrastructures. At the booth, there will also be a demo of the Digital Humanitites course registry that has been relaunched as a joint effort of the European research infrastructures CLARIN ERIC and DARIAH-EU.
