About the Conference:

The international DARIAH-HR conference represents a significant event for the digital humanities and heritage researchers community, providing an opportunity for reflection, discussion, and collaboration on current trends, challenges, and opportunities within these fields.

This year's conference is particularly significant as it takes place in the year marking the 10th anniversary of establishing the DARIAH-EU consortium. Over the past decade, digital humanities and the heritage sector have undergone significant changes, driven by technological advancements, societal and cultural shifts, and the evolution of research infrastructures. The question arises: How has DARIAH evolved since its inception and kept pace with these changes, and has it been an active agent in these transformations over the past decade?

We invite you to explore how digital humanities have evolved over the past 10 years under the influence of the DARIAH-EU consortium (and other research infrastructures and related initiatives). In doing so, we strongly encourage you to consider the following questions:

Additionally, you are welcome to explore broader themes related to digital humanities and heritage, including the application of new technologies, ethical challenges, questions of authenticity and representation, as well as potential future research directions.

We particularly encourage you to consider and explore the following topics and their development over the past decade:

We invite proposals for individual presentations and posters. Only on-site presentations will be available, but live streaming will be provided for those who wish to follow the conference remotely.

Abstracts for proposals should not exceed 500 words and must be submitted, along with a concise biographical note (maximum 200 words) and a photo, to dhh@dariah.hr by 25 June using the template available for download on this link. 

We welcome submissions of completed, original, and unpublished research, as well as contributions presenting work in progress. Authors of selected papers will be invited to prepare a submission for an edited, peer-reviewed volume.

Participation in the 4th Digital Humanities & Heritage Conference is free of charge.
