"Lobbying for Libraries"

7th Estonian Digital Humanities Conference

Date: 04 December 2019 to 06 December 2019
Location: Tallinn, Estonia

USE OF DIGITAL CULTURAL HERITAGE IN RESEARCH AND EDUCATION

Digital humanities is transforming the usage of data analytics from a technological tool to a new field of human knowledge.

We are witnessing the innovative approaches of researchers from various disciplines as well as the new habits of contemporary internet users in consuming the wide variety of digitised cultural heritage data. In this perspective, the efforts of memory institutions to increase the available volume of digitised sources of cultural heritage deserves special attention.

The conference aims to examine the designing and usage of digitised cultural heritage collections through a variety of disciplines ranging from art to technology, from history to geography, from museum studies to media studies, from archival studies to cultural data analytics. Our special focus is on the methodological and educational value of digital humanities.

 

Themes include:

  •  Digital collections of cultural heritage and their innovative usage
  • Perspectives of cultural analytics as a source of transdisciplinary knowledge
  • Transforming handwritten documents to machine-readable text
  • The usage of digitised collections of GLAM institutions (galleries, libraries, archives, museums)
  •  Methodologies for analysis of digital memory documents and data
  • Digital memory data modelling, visualisation, and presentation
  • Usage of digital heritage sources in creating digital tools for education
  • Use of crowdsourcing in creating museum collections
  • User in the archives and his/her expectations
  • Personal digital storytelling and heritage collections
  • Questioning the borders of literature
  • Digital narration and cultural heritage resources
