Herrenhausen Conference: "(Digital) Humanities Revisited – Challenges and Opportunities in the Digital Age"

to

In times of digitization, internet, and mobile communication, the humanities can build on new, empirically driven methods to gain new insights. But what are the implications of this mode of knowledge production for the various disciplines subsumed under the term humanities, their methods and research objects, and for the role the humanities should and could play in society.

This triad will be the focus of our Herrenhausen Conference "(Digital) Humanities Revisited – Challenges and Opportunities in the Digital Age". Together with experts from the various fields of the humanities, the conference would like to facilitate a dialogue between protagonists who embrace digital tools and those following and sustaining more traditional approaches.

The conference will take place on 5-7 December 2013 in Hanover, Germany. For further information, please visit the conference website http://www.volkswagenstiftung.de/digitalhumanities
