Dokumentation: Herrenhäuser Konferenz "(Digital) Humanities Revisited"

Datum

200 Wissenschaftler aus aller Welt diskutierten vom 5. bis 7. Dezember in Hannover die Herausforderungen des digitalen Zeitalters für die Geisteswissenschaften, auf der Herrenhäuser Konferenz "(Digital) Humanities Revisited – Challenges and Opportunities in the Digital Age".

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.
