Digital Humanities 2016. Conference Abstracts (Jagiellonian University & Pedagogical University, Kraków, 11–16 July 2016)

Kraków: 2016.
Under the general editorship: M. Eder, J. Rybicki.

The annual “Digital Humanities” conference, first held in 1989, gives a clear proof that the field of DH is, first and foremost, very well established, even if more and more subfields emerge almost every year. Secondly, the conference confirms the fact that the discipline is constantly growing. This year is no exception. Even more: the 27th joint conference of EADH (ALLC) and ACH, and the 8th conference under the auspices of ADHO, is by far the biggest event in the field, with its almost 450 accepted submissions in different categories: panels, long papers, short papers, posters, and pre-conference workshops. The number of registered participants exceeded 850 at the time of writing these words. 

The conference takes place in Kraków; this is only the second time (after Debrecen 1998) that it comes to Central/Eastern Europe. The region’s rich past and its recent rapid growth has inspired the conference theme, “Digital Identities: the Past and the Future”. This theme aims at stressing the very strong connections between DH and its roots in the medieval idea of a university with a prominent role of the Liberal Arts. We strongly believe that the unique relation between the origins of the humanities’ scholarship and the opportunities provided by computer algorithms and the enormous amount of resources (text collections, linguistic corpora, databases, virtual libraries) can lead to a new scientific revolution.
