Digital Humanities LAB

Thursday 30th June from 10am-7:30pm BST /11 – 8:30pm CEET


We are delighted to announce an exciting opportunity to take part in a full day Digital Arts & Humanities Lab in a unique collaboration between the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP), and Berlin’s Humboldt and Freie Universities’ affiliated centres of excellence – EXC 2020 “Temporal Communities” and EXC “Matters of Activity”.

The aim of this daylong event is to give PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in both the UK and Germany working across a wide range of arts and humanities fields a practical sense of the methods, theoretical questions and possibilities that are opened up by digital research. 

Sessions are organised around explorations of practical method, a range of overview conversations, smaller seminar-sized “show and tell case-study sessions” where researchers in the field discuss what they do and how they think about digital methods in practice – and a plenary to round off the day.

This first lab will run for one full day with a further iteration planned for the Fall 2022.

Date: June 30, 2022

Time: 10am – 7.30pm BST /11 – 8:30pm CEET

Organizers: London Arts and Humanities Partnership; EXC 2020 “Temporal Communities”; EXC Matters of Activity

Participants: a maximum of 40 participants in total – 20 from the UK and 20 from Germany.

Level of experience: none required.

Our lived experience has become intensely enmeshed with the digital. With it, digital arts and humanities research has rapidly accelerated across the globe over recent years, transforming how we think about and design our research.  The Digital Humanities Lab will offer an introduction to the wide range of approaches to the digital arts and humanities, from computationally-informed analyses to projects that conduct inquiry through visual rendering. In the various sessions we will explore different examples that demonstrate how digital methods can be mobilized to expand research in the arts and humanities, as well as how they are transformed by the many research concerns to which they are applied.

The Lab’s objective is to introduce students and ECR scholars, new to “digital humanities practice” to methods and questions that open up digital research through the practice of digital humanities research, examining what is possible with digital methods in relation to, and in contrast with, established traditions of humanities, arts and practice-based research.
