Presenting the project at DHN Helsinki

I’m travelling to Helsinki, Finland next week to attend the 3rd annual conference of the Association of Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries / DH i Norden from 7–9 March. Organised by the Helsinki Centre for Digital Humanities (HELDIG) at the University of Helsinki, the main conference theme is “Open Science” with sub-categories focused on “History”, “Cultural Heritage”, “Games”, and “Future”.

On Friday 9 March, I’ll be presenting a short paper falling within the conference’s sub-theme of “History”. I will share some of the results of the Icelandic Scribes project, focusing on this website as the project’s main digital output. I will also touch on some ideas for more effective collaboration among existing and future digital resources in the field of Old Norse-Icelandic studies. My paper has been accepted for publication in the conference’s official proceedings, and I will share this after the event, when it becomes available.

DHN 2018 will be my first Digital Humanities conference, as I come from a more traditional Humanities background (medieval literature and cultural studies). I’m looking forward to the opportunity to have productive discussions about this and other projects, and to learn more about wider issues in Digital Humanities.
