Second DH Stockholm Event (March 13, 2019)

Welcome to the second Digital Humanities Stockholm meeting at KTH on March 13, 1-4 pm. In both Swedish and English, as appropriate. Registration open here(deadline March 11).

Digital Humanities Stockholm is a joint initiative by the National Library of Sweden and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. It is open to anyone interested and the basic premise is to support engagement across boundaries. Digital Humanities Stockholm is situated in the Stockholm region with a national and international scope.

The first Digital Humanities Stockholm took place in the Auditorium at the National Library of Sweden and the main theme was “Structure, Vulnerability and Uncertainty in Data”. For the second event we will move to KTH Royal Institute of Technology and the large, “flat” and light conference space associated with Openlab.

This event will be more low-key and conversational bringing together people and institutions mainly across the Stockholm region (including some national institutions) to talk about what is going on, challenges and plans ahead. And see where opportunities converge and what it will take to move forward.

There will also be a session on interaction design/interface, which is arguably not given enough attention in digital humanities. An additional perspective will be humanistic infrastructure, a topic which has recently attracted quite a bit of attention, and among other things through a new report on infrastructure for the humanities which will be presented briefly. Main curator: Patrik Svensson.
