Crossing the boundaries – Digital Humanities today and tomorrow

The third workshop of the Einstein-Zirkel “Digital Humanities in Berlin“, in which the CMB-Digital Humanities team takes part, will take place on Feb 28, 2014 (8:30am-5pm) at the Henry Ford Building of the Freie Universität.

It aims at providing an overview of “digital humanities” projects and teams of the Berlin area. The morning will feature about sixty DH projects and institutions during a “poster madness” session. Kurt Fendt (MIT) will then deliver a keynote speech in the early afternoon, where he will be introducing the Hyperstudio of the MIT and several research projects which are being hosted there. A final podium will gather various key representatives of the local institutions, including Peter-André Alt (FU’s president), Peter Frensch (VP-Research at HU), Jürgen Renn (Director of MPI-WG), Günther Schauerte (VP Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz), Reinhard Förtsch (Scientific Director of DAI-Berlin) and Wolf-Hagen Krauth (Scientific Director of BBAW), to discuss the future of Digital Humanities in Berlin.
