ACDH contributes @ ELTE.DH

The Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities (ACDH-OeAW) makes a significant contribution to the programme of the DH_Budapest_2018.

The ACDH at the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE.DH) – in collaboration with DARIAH, CLARIN and Michael Culture Association – calls for abstracts for its conference held on 28–31 May 2018.

DH_Budapest_2018 seeks to provide a stimulating international forum to bring together researchers from Central Europe and beyond. It will examine the current state of research in digital humanities in the hope of exposing further aspects of the role played by the digital medium in the present and the future of scholarly practices.
