Registration is now open!

We opened the registration for the PhD seminar today. You can register as participant via UiO nettskjema for both or either one or the other day.

The PhD seminar is open for everyone interested in the field of digital humanities. We will focus on discussion and interaction and aim at an informal, newcomer-friendly atmosphere.



Extended Deadline for submissions: April 30, 2013

Good news!

We decided to extend the deadline for (phd student) paper or project submissions. Send your 500–1000 word abstracts to organiser Annika Rockenberger by end of April 2013. If you’re interested in participating without presenting a paper or your project: you’re welcome to join us: listen, discover, and discuss! The seminar will take place at University of Oslo‘s Blindern Campus, Niels Treschows Hus, Top Floor on the 14th and 15th of June, 2013.

We’re looking forward to meeting you there!

Themed Phd Seminar “What are Digital Humanities?”

The Phd seminar “What are Digital Humanities?” at The University of Oslo seeks to provide doctoral students of all humanities disciplines – with a strong focus on textual primary sources – with both a comprehensive overview of the history of digital humanities and an introduction to dh technologies such as digitisation, text encoding and editing, analysing, interpreting and manipulation of textual data as well as visualisation and virtual display of humanities research. International representatives of digital humanities projects and initiatives will give their perspectives on the field and share their expertise on dh technologies and skills.

The CfP will be released in January 2013. The seminar is open for Norwegian and international doctoral candidates throughout all humanities disciplines as well as the human sciences.
