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, landsca pe, 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 digi tal  
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, a nd 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.
