Conference presented state of the art in digital humanities research
The first DHBenelux conference on 12- 13 June 2014 showcased the state of the art in digital humanities – the most recent development in humanities research. For researchers already involved in digital humanities, the conference proved to be a great opportunity to share knowledge and meet potential project partners. For those new to digital humanities, the conference provided a platform to get acquainted with both experienced and beginning researchers.
Exciting conference programme
The conference organisers put together an exciting programme, which focused on all aspects of digital humanities in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg. Exchanging information was a major goal of the conference. Therefore, the conference was packed with parallel sessions and short, 15-minute presentations. The conference dinner on 12th June was followed by a poster session. In other words: plenty of time for networking and for gaining a quick overview of the field.
