In the last years, digital humanities have become a dynamically developing research trend. This is visible in the activity of the scholars and in the number of participants of the conferences organized by the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (Montreal, Cracow, etc.).

Linguistic research is an important part of this trend. As the chair of the organizing committee of quantitative linguistics conference QUALICO 2018, I would like to invite members of the DH community interested in quantitative language modeling to submit their abstracts. The conference will be held in Wroclaw (Poland) from the 5th to the 8th of July 2018 (a week after the ADHO conference in New Mexico).

Here you will find the Call for Papers. For up-to-date information please visit the conference webpage at qualico2018.uni.wroc.pl

Chair of the organizing committee,

prof. Adam Pawłowski

In the upcoming Digital History Workshop (19th Octobre, 2017), we will showcase recent tools developed by CLARIAH - a research infrastructure for scholars in the Humanities.
We will focus on:

Social-Economic (Work Package 4)

Richard Zijdeman will present DataLegend and demonstrate how this tool supports research on social-economic history.

Media History (Work Package 5)

Liliana Melgar will introduce the Media Suite, a research environment that assists researchers with the exploration and analysis of audiovisual and contextual sources (such as programme guides).

The workshop will take place between 14h-17h in  Turfdraagsterpad 9, BG 1, eLab (Room 0.16).
