The “Göttingen Dialog in Digital Humanities” (GDDH) has established a

new forum for the discussion of digital methods applied to all areas of

the Humanities, including Classics, Philosophy, History, Literature,

Law, Languages, Social Science, Archaeology and more. The initiative is

organized by the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH).


The dialogs will take place *every Tuesday at 5pm from late April until

early July 2015* in the form of 90 minute seminars. Presentations will

be 45 minutes long and delivered in English, followed by 45 minutes of

discussion and student participation. Seminar content should be of

interest to humanists, digital humanists, librarians and computer



We invite submissions of *complete papers* describing research which

employs digital methods, resources or technologies in an innovative way

in order to enable a better or new understanding of the Humanities, both

in the past and present. Themes may include text mining, machine

learning, network analysis, time series, sentiment analysis, agent-based

modelling, or efficient visualization of big and humanities-relevant

data. Papers should be written in English. Successful papers will be

submitted for publication as a special issue of /Digital Humanities

Quarterly/ (DHQ). Furthermore, the author(s) of the best paper will

receive *a prize of €500*, which will be awarded on the basis of both

the quality and the delivery of the paper.


A small budget for travel cost reimbursements is available.


*Full papers should be sent by March 20th* to in Word

.docx format. There is *no limitation in length but the suggested

minimum is 5000 words*. The full programme, including the venue of the

dialogs, will be sent to you by April 1st.
