SotonDH @ Digital Humanities 2012 in Hamburg
July 22, 2012
by Tom Brughmans
This year’s Digital Humanities conference ended this weekend and it was a great success. The entire event was perfectly organised by the University of Hamburg. They even anticipated rain by providing DH-branded umbrellas. There was a record number of delegates, presentations were of high quality and the social events were a reflection of its host city’s image as a party capital and heimat of The Beatles. The University of Southampton was also well represented, with a workshop by Leif Isaksen and colleagues on modelling space and time in the humanities, a presentation on the Pelagios project, Ptolemy’s Geography and a presentation by Tom Brughmans on his work with citation network analysis. Tom was also awarded an ADHO award bursary for young DH scholars.
By clicking on the links above you can see recordings of these presentations, but videos of many other presentations are available as well. Just have a look at the conference programme. There was alot of Twitter activity with #dh2012 and do also have a look at the DH student assistants blog. This year’s Fortier Prize went to @marcgalexander and Willard McCarty was awarded the Busa Prize.
SotonDH is looking forward to next year’s DH in Nebraska!
