Digital Humanities Summer School 2014 / DigitalHumanities@arts.kuleuven

New digital evolutions are increasingly affecting humanities research and education since the final quarter of the twentieth century. Online resources, data sets, electronic teaching environments, open access publishing, data visualisation and data capturing have become ubiquitous. Therefore, the KU Leuven Faculty of Arts has consciously chosen to support DH developments as part of its research policy. Following the successful DigHum 2013 edition, we are pleased to announce a third 2014 Digital Humanities initiative. From 8 to 10 September 2014 a DH Summer School will take place in Leuven (Belgium). The Summer School is organised in association with the Doctoral School of the Humanities and researchers from the UA and UGent. Three full days of lectures and showcases will be held on Imaging Text, Art and Archeology, Digital Philosophy and Metadata & Standards. The detailed programme is now available. In the meantime, we would like to launch a call for poster presentations on these themes.

Deadline proposals for posters: 22 August 2014
