Registration now OPEN for 2017 Digital Humanities Conference

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

Taking place over one and a half days the conference is being held in the beautifully restored Royal Dockyard Church.  With an impressive array of speakers lined up, including a Key Note from Dr Kathryn Reese-Taylor from University of Calgary, and plenty of time built into the programme for thematic and cross-cutting discussions, this conference will provide an opportunity for academics from diverse disciplines to discuss their potential contributions as they relate to Mapping Material Landscapes; Environmental Humanities; Spatial Analysis and the Built Environment; and, Lived Experience and Visualisation.

Registration is now OPEN.  Please visit the conference page  to sign up.
