Digital Humanities Nuts and Bolts: From Idea to Sustainable Project

Conference details

A day-long conference on digital humanities

This conference will focus on planning, logistics, and long-term maintenance of digital humanities (DH) projects.
Welcoming experts who employ digital humanities tools and methods in their research and the classroom as well as specialists on project management, sustainability, and the legal and ethical implications of DH, the conference will feature a morning presentation by the directors of the BigDIVA search visualization tool and the Advanced Research Consortium (ARC), “lightning talks” by DH scholars, and sessions on planning and project management.
By encouraging participants to “pop the hood” on their DH projects, we hope to foster a vibrant discussion for scholars and digital practitioners from across the humanities.
