A transnational seminar series

The Digital Humanities Long View

Technology is global, but where we live affects how we apply digital solutions to humanities work. We all have what Roopika Risam described as a digital humanities (DH) “accent”. This seminar series explores those accents by looking at DH research here, and there, and over there too. This is a chance to build greater global awareness and empathy about regional and local approaches to digital humanities in the twenty-first century.

It’s an opportunity for newcomers to understand how the field has developed differently around the globe, and for established practitioners to consider their work as part of a larger movement with competing influences, ambitions, and blindspots.

This seminar series is co-hosted by scholars living in three countries, nine time zones apart. Building upon our successful “Digital Humanities Long View” series (2021), this is a further bridging of trans-Atlantic digital humanities centres to promote a global conversation. We are committed to fostering rich international discussions from a diverse range of perspectives, with an emphasis on reflective practice.

Co-hosted by UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, the Centre for Digital Humanities, Uppsala, and the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis, Stanford.

Convenors: Drs Agnieszka Backman (Uppsala), Giovanna Ceserani (Stanford), Adam Crymble (UCL), Nick Fenech (Stanford), Anna Foka (Uppsala), Julianne Nyhan (UCL), Laura Stokes (Stanford), Clelia Rose La Monica (Uppsala).
