Published on Friday, August 05, 2016


Digital Humanities research always takes place within a specific institutional context, which is constituted by both science system and its societal environment. DH centres, which are being launched all over the world, have therefore to face a number of challenges in order to function effectively and fulfill the potential of DH. The conference „Digital Humanities Centres: Experiences and Perspectives” will be an opportunity to share experiences and reflect on the perspectives of DH institutions. The consideration of different aspects of DH centres activities from various points of view will hopefully enable participants to come with new ideas and solutions useful in they day-to-day work.


Digital Humanities Laboratory at the University of Warsaw is now welcoming submission of abstracts for the conference „Digital Humanities Centres: Experiences and Perspectives”, which will take place on 8th and 9th of December 2016 at the University of Warsaw, Poland.  

The main theme of the conference is the institutional context of DH research. In particular, topics will include:

  • institutional and organizational structures;
  • institutional strategies and policies;
  • science management;
  • funding schemes;
  • collaboration with business and industry;
  • collaboration with cultural institutions;
  • international collaboration on an institutional level;
  • infrastructure and e-infrastructure;
  • dissemination and PR activities.

Each presentation will last 15 minutes, followed by 5-minute discussion. Accepted contributions will be arranged in thematic sessions. The language of the conference is English.

Presentation abstracts, not exceeding 500 words, should be submitted by 23 September 2016 to conference@lach.edu.pl. They will be reviewed by the Organizing Committee by 3 October 2016.
