Already in the news: short article in Forskerforum 6 – 2013

The latest issue of Forskerforum. Tidsskrift for Forskerforbundet (Nr. 6 – 2013) featured a short article about the PhD seminar and the future of the humanities.

Under the title “Forskningstrender: Er humanioras framtid digital?” (Research trends: Is the future of the humanities digital?) they write on page 12:

„Det engelske begrepet og forskningsfeltet «digital humanities (DH)» er et hett tema i internasjonal humanistisk forskning, nå også i Norge. DH kan bety å analysere betydningen som nye medier og IKT har i kulturen og samfunnet, men også å skape ny teknologi og anvende den for å besvare typiske humanistiske problemstillinger. Vil dagens humaniora utfordres av dette nye feltet? 14.–15. juni arrangerer universitetet i Oslo doktorgradsseminaret «What are Digital Humanities?».”
(The English term and disciplinary field “digital humanities” is a hot topic in international humanities research and now also in Norway. DH could mean to investigate the importance that new media and information and communication technology (IKT) have in culture and society but could also mean to create and develop new technology and use it to find solutions to problems that are characteristic for the humanities. Are today’s humanities going to be challenged by this new discipline? The University of Oslo arranges a PhD seminar on “What are Digital Humanities?” on June 14–15.)
