Design and the Digital Humanities


21 November, 2012, 12:00 – 16:00
Little Auditorium

You’re very welcome to attend this half day event as part of the strategic research development of the Centre for Design Research at AHO.

The seminar will take up core issues in the digital humanities but with a specific turn to design. We’ll address current profiles of the digital humanities and link them to analytical and practical matters. To do this we’ve invited a variety of project based researchers to also present their takes on design in the digital humanities. This is work that has a considerable legacy and extended reach into the digital humanities where otherwise design often goes unmentioned.

We’ve planned this event as a precursor to a potential special issue of a peer reviewed journal. It’ll involve presentations and discussion, so we’d value your participation.

There’s place for around 40 participants at this free event.
