2017 Digital Humanities Conference 7-8 September, University of Kent

The Digital Humanities (DH) and Geohumanities are emergent fields with increasing resources. They invite exploration of how to harness and nurture interdisciplinary and comparative contributions. By embracing new digital data sources, acquisition, and manipulation techniques, Digital Humanities have the potential to contextualise and inform how current developmental practice is shaping socio-cultural inhabitation of the landscape.

18 May 2017

This conference provides an opportunity for academics from diverse disciplines to discuss these potential contributions as they relate to:

• Mapping Material Landscapes;
• Environmental Humanities;
• Spatial Analysis and the Built Environment; and,
• Lived experience and Visualisation.

With confirmed key note speakers including Dr Kathryn Reese-Taylor and Dr Scott Hutson from the Universities of Calgary and Kentucky, respectively, this event will bring together the leading academics in the field for a day and a half of stimulating discussion.
