Digital Humanities Methodologies DHCH2022

Algorithmic methods are increasingly infiltrating the humanities through the use of computer-based research. This leads to fundamental changes with regard to methods employed, and consequently methodological approaches in the humanities. Leading to questions of how the different disciplines get shaped through these methods. How do we frame our methodological approaches?

That's why the focus of this event is on methodologies. By bringing together professionals working with very different methodologies we explore this topic on behalf of digital humanities.

Metadata and semantic information are crucial for most operations with data. Enriching images with words and words with images is more important than ever.

That's why the focus of the starting event is on image-based research. This can be demonstrated particularly well by the research on cultural heritage, as important sources of great importance for our social and cultural identity. The change towards digital methods and tools is essential in this context in several ways since the form of capturing technology as well as the visualization of content changed greatly with the advent of the digital.
