DADH 2019 : The Tenth International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities
Call For Papers
10th International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities – Digital Humanities and Social Trends
The Digital Humanities is an emerging field of research, the term itself having only been coined in 2004. Notwithstanding the fact that research in this area is quite new, the digital humanities has been flourishing at an unprecedented rate. In recent years, whether in Europe, America, Asia or Taiwan, various research institutes and teams dedicated to research and development in the digital humanities have been established. This demonstrates the high level of interest in and importance attached to this field by the community.
The core concept of the field of digital humanities is the application of modern digital technologies to the disciplines of the traditional humanities, in order to overcome the limitations of traditional research methodologies. This combination of knowledge and technology, in an interdisciplinary manner, is unachievable in any single area. The development of the field of digital humanities is in fact inseparable from the progress of new digital technologies. These new technologies not only provide new methods of data analysis, but can also be used to create new types of digital resources.
In recent years, major breakthroughs have been made in the theories, technologies, systems, and tools of cloud computing, big data, and artificial intelligence. Facing this new era, the spirit of digital humanities, humanistic themes as the kernel, digital technologies as an aid, can be feasibly achieved if humanists can integrate computation thinking in the ideation and conduction of their research.
This year is the ten-year anniversary of the International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities. This conference will explore the potential, advantages, and limitations of digital humanities in humanities research. This conference will continue over the years to research every facet of the digital humanities, but will also include the topic of ‘Digital Humanities and Social Trends’ as its theme. We invite scholars and experts, at home and abroad, to participate in this conference, and look forward to creating new milestones in digital humanities through dialog and idea exchange.
