The University of Sheffield’s Humanities Research Institute with the support of Centernet is delighted to announce its Call for Papers for a three-day conference to be held in Sheffield during 4th – 6th September 2014.

The Digital Humanities Congress is a conference 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 residential conference facility, The Edge.

Keynote Speakers

• Professor Laura Mandell (Director, Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media and Culture, Texas A & M University)
• Dr Fred Truyen (Associate Professor in the Faculty of Arts and Head of CS/Digital Media Lab at the Institute for  Cultural Studies, KU Leuven)
