Herrenhausen Conference: "(Digital) Humanities Revisited"

Herrenhausen Palace, Hanover/Germany, December 5-7, 2013

In times of digitization, internet, and mobile communication, the humanities can build on new, empirically driven methods to gain new insights. But what are the implications of this mode of knowledge production for the various disciplines subsumed under the term humanities, their methods and research objects, and for the role the humanities should and could play in society?

This triad was the focus of the Herrenhausen Conference "(Digital) Humanities Revisited – Challenges and Opportunities in the Digital Age" in Hannover, Dec. 5-7, 2013.

Listen to audio recordings of the presentations by Jeffrey Schnapp, Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, Walt Detmar Meurers, Daniel Keim, Julia Flanders, Luis von Ahn, John Weitzmann and Gregory Ralph Crane.
