The third annual European Association for the Digital Humanities Symposium (EADH Day) will be held in conjunction with the 6th Annual Conference of the Associazione Informatica Umanistica e Culture Digitali (AIUCD, Association for Digital Humanities and Digital Cultures) which will take place at the University Sapienza of Roma from the 24th to the 28th of January 2017. The 3rd EADH day will take place on Wednesday January 25, 2017.
The objective of EADH days is to raise awareness for DH research activities beyond the regional conference context. The format of EADH day is designed to facilitate exchange and networking initiatives among European DH research communities and in particular to foster the participation of early career scholars to local DH conferences around Europe.
The 3rd EADH Day will be articulated in two main sessions. The morning session is theme oriented; it will be opened by a keynote speech given by an affirmed scholar in the EADH community and will hopefully be closed by a lively and open debate to which all the delegates can participate. This year theme is:
“Diversity, multiculturalism and theoretical foundations of DH: how big can the tent be?”
The 3rd EADH day will be opened by a keynote speech by Barbara Bordalejo, Assistant Professor at Leuven University and member of EADH executive board.
The afternoon session is open to any relevant subject in DH such as recent research developments, key topics of interest to the digital humanities community, project or tool presentations.
