University of Sheffield, 4th and 5th September 2024

The University of Sheffield’s Digital Humanities Institute is delighted to announce that its two-day conference will be held in Sheffield on 4th and 5th September 2024.

This will be a physical conference.

The Digital Humanities Congress is a conference held in Sheffield every two years. Its purpose is to promote the sharing of knowledge, ideas and techniques within the digital humanities.

Digital humanities is understood by Sheffield to mean the use of technology within arts, heritage and humanities research as both a method of inquiry and a means of dissemination. As such, proposals related to all disciplines within the arts, humanities and heritage domains are welcome.

The conference will take place at the University’s refurbished conference facility, The Edge.

Attendees might be interested to know that the day before our conference (3rd September) there will be the DARIAH UK workshop at the University of Leeds’ Digital Creativity and Cultures Hub, which is a short train journey from Sheffield.
