Call For Papers

The Centre for Digital Humanities at the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE.DH) — in collaboration with DARIAH, CLARIN and Michael Culture Association — calls for abstracts for its conference held on 27–31 May 2018.

Researchers of the social sciences and humanities all experience changes in their chosen fields as everyday scholarly practices become more and more digital. Digital humanities — as a new and quickly institutionalizing interdiscipline — plays a vital role in promoting this shift. In addition, it serves as a new medium that connects the various more-or-less independent disciplines we call(ed) humanities. This new “unity” in the digital medium — a medium, that was not designed to be used by scholars — takes place in a variety of ways: via digital cultural heritage aggregation, via using international data standards, mark-up languages, technologies like linked open data, or by applying widely used CMS and repository software. Standardized data transfer has its undeniable benefits, nevertheless, the process certainly re-writes not only disciplinary borders and hierarchies but scholarly communication and knowledge transfer at large. The unstoppable curiosity to new digital methodologies and the urge to reflect on their influence theoretically: this dual drive has motivated us in triggering this conference series.

DH_Budapest_2018 seeks to provide a stimulating international forum to bring together researchers from Central Europe and beyond. It will survey the current state of research in digital humanities in the hope of exposing further aspects of the role played by the digital medium in the present and the future of scholarly practices.

We invite submission of abstracts on subjects relating to digital humanities and social sciences ranging from practical approaches to novel methodologies and theoretical reflections concerning but not limited to the topics below:

Digital scholarly editing
Digital cultural heritage with a special focus on born digital documents
Natural Language Processing (NLP), named entity recognition, topic modelling, big data analysis, text mining, semantic web technology etc.
Past and present practices and networks of Digital humanities in Central Europe
Teaching digital humanities for students, teachers and researchers; eLearning
Individual presentation (Abstract submission is now open)
Individual presentations (20 minutes length and 5 minutes Q&A) are especially suitable for presenting current research, whether in terms of theory, methodology, or outcomes. Papers with a concrete and distinguishable digital humanities research question and approach are encouraged. Instead of presenting large DH projects, we encourage speakers to focus on a relevant scholarly research question, methods and solutions based on / inherent in the project.

Posters are useful to convey technical explanations and clarifications, and to demonstrate projects and on-going research. A short, 5 min. presentation of the poster will be possible during the poster sessions.

Workshops offer in-depth knowledge of dealing with specific methods or tools while actively involving participants. Workshops could be based both on theoretical, reflexive and practical, and methodological grounds.

Abstracts of 500 words plus a short bibliography can be submitted via EasyChair.

Poster and workshop proposals will be accepted from 1 January 2018.

Deadline for submitting proposals: 30 January 2018.
Notification of acceptance: 15 March 2018.

The registration fee is €50 which can be paid between 16 March and 1 May 2018.

Beside senior researchers we also encourage early career scholars and PhD students to submit their abstracts. Reimbursement to cover the expenses of their conference participation will be awarded for the best proposals.

A selection of the presented papers will be published in a special issue in Digital Scholar, the Journal of the Centre of Digital Humanities, Budapest.
