About the Publication

The Digital Humanities Congress was  held in Sheffield from 4-6th September 2014. The conference was intended to promote the sharing of knowledge, ideas and techniques within the digital humanities and we had a varied programme comprising international speakers from disciplines across the arts, humanities and heritage domains. This digital edition of the conference proceedings presents 10 of the papers.
