Digital Humanities Conference

Australasian Digital Humanities Conference DH2016, CHASS Newsletter, April 2016

Digital humanities researchers, GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) and eResearch professionals will meet in Hobart from 20 to 23 June at the 2016 biennial Australasian Digital Humanities Conference.

The theme of the Digital Humanities Australasia conference (DHA2016) is working with complexity. Using digital technologies to understand our creativity, cultures and society presents numerous technical challenges, but arguably more significant are the intellectual and conceptual complexities that realising their creative and analytical potential presents.

The DHA2016 conference program richly reflects the multifaceted nature of digital humanities research. Participants will explore various aspects of theory and practice, the challenges of creating and sharing research data, and innovations in tools and services in this new and still highly experimental interdisciplinary field. A particular focus of the conference will be assessing the needs of digital humanities researchers in terms of data management and research infrastructure.

The conference sessions are packed with presentations on topics including computational modelling and analysis in the humanities and creative arts, game theory, digital cultural heritage, the sonorisation of archival records, documentary analysis, and interface design.

The conference will also run in collaboration with the Digital Panopticon: Penal History in a Digital Age Conference, which will be held in Hobart from 22-24 June 2016.

Keynote speakers:

The conference is supported through sponsorship from: the Centre for Colonialism and its Aftermath (University of Tasmania), AARNET, GALE: Cengage Learning, Intersect Australia, and Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, and the University of Tasmania.
