The purpose of this track is to analyse the current practise of digital humanities and how the humanities may evolve through their engagement with technology, media, and computational methods. Humanities are facing an era full of challenges and opportunities regarding the accessibility to ever growing and interconnected digital data. In this context of big data, infrastructures, citizen science, visualization, etc. are examples of key aspects needed to enable cultural and scholar exploration. Our objective is to draw together humanists who are engaged in digital and computer-assisted research, teaching, and creation.

Although we pursuit to shed more light to current the challenges and achievements in digital humanities around the globe, we maintain a particular focus on the particularities of the European context.


The main topics regarding this track are related but not limited to the following ones:

  • humanities research enabled through digital media, and computational methods
  • computer applications in literary, linguistic, cultural, and historical studies
  • visual approaches enabling novel ways of analysis and exploration of resources
  • studies regarding the role of art and design (design thinking) in humanities
