Special Session on Visual approaches for Digital Humanities

University SSST in cooperation with EUROGRAPHICS Workshop on Graphics and Cultural Heritage invites submission of abstracts for its special session on Digital Humanities.

Digital Humanities is an academic field concerned with the application of digital approaches and technologies to traditional humanities disciplines. The use of digital tools, techniques and media is changing the way researchers in the arts and human sciences carry out their everyday scholarly practices. In particular, the availability of visual technologies including digital images and three-dimensional representations of archives and collections provide new opportunities to interrogate and access the material in new ways. As such, Digital Humanities plays a crucial role in promoting new ways of doing scholarship that involve collaborative, transdisciplinary and computationally engaged research and teaching. In addition to making possible new kinds of humanities-based intellectual engagement and experimentation, Digital Humanities also studies their cultural and social impacts.

We would like to encourage practitioners, scholars, researchers and students from South-East Europe interested in Visual approaches for Digital Humanities research to submit abstracts to this special session. Submissions related to any theme pertaining visual approaches to Digital Humanities research are welcome.

Abstracts should be 800-1000 words including references. The cover page should contain the title and author(s)’ names, affiliations and contact details. The title should be short and attention-catching. The body should make a clear statement of the topic and purpose of your study; describe the way how your study was undertaken; and give a concise summary of your findings, their value and to whom. In addition, you should provide up to 5 keywords which most closely reflect the content of the abstract.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • Visual technologies applied to humanities research; including the application of digital images or 3D technologies (e.g. 3D scanning, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality);
  • Applications in different humanities disciplines, including literary and linguistic fields, archaeology, history, architecture, art history, music, film, theatre, media studies, etc.;
