Call for Papers/Panels/Posters

The 8th International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities

Conference Theme: Digital Humanities Evolving: Past, Present, and Future

Venue: National Chengchi University, Taipei

Dates: November 29 – December 1, 2017

While the debates over the definition, landscape, and scale of digital
humanities continue, digital humanists seem to have a consensus that digital
humanities are constantly evolving and facing new challenges.  Take big data
as an example.  Technologies automatically and instantly archive what people
say, what people do, and even what people think.  The rich information
provided by big data leads humanities research to a new frontier that can
hardly be imagined by classical humanists.  However, the self-archived data
contain real, virtual, and even fake contents.  How shall digital archivists
and digital humanists embrace big data and big data analytics? 
Alternatively, will the ubiquitous digitization transform human culture and
make “digital humanities” simply become “humanities”?

Digitalization involves computing.  Digital humanists share the same tools
with computational social scientists to extract information, to analyze
social network, and to perform geospatial analysis.  Digital humanists have
also attempted to apply the tools of computational social sciences to model
and simulate the complex human experiences.   In the meanwhile,
computational social scientists are exploring sentiment modeling.  When the
research tools and topics of interest become common, how far can digital
humanists and social scientists collaborate to gain deeper insights into
common research problems and cope with shared challenges?

Continuing the legacy of the past 7 annual conferences of DADH, we welcome
the submissions of paper or poster abstracts and panel proposals related to,
but not limited to, the aforementioned issues, digital technologies and
applications, interdisciplinary research in humanities and social sciences
with the use of digital data, theoretical and epistemological considerations
in digital humanities, digital humanities education, digital arts and music,
digital infrastructure, cultural heritage, and internet analysis.
