Digital Humanities Experiments (#dhiha6)

11 jun 2015 00:00 - 12 jun 2015 00:00

Institut historique allemand Paris

8,rue du Parc-Royal, 75003 Paris


Colloque organisé avec le soutien de l'European Science Foundation, du Scientific Review Group HUM et de l'IEA de Paris par Claudine Moulin (IEA de Paris / Université de Trier), Mareike König, Suzanne Dumouchel et Lisa Bolz (Institut historique allemand de Paris), Pierre Mounier (OpenEdition) et Anne Baillot (Université Humboldt de Berlin).

Avec deux contributions de résidents de l'IEA de Paris :

  • Claudine Moulin, animation de la table ronde "The value of failure in science"
  • Brian Sandberg, animation de la table ronde " Interdisciplinary experimentations "



This conference addresses the gap between the research culture with which Digital Humanists are equipped via their disciplinary backgrounds and the research culture they foster in this field. Why does experimentation play a crucial role in Digital Humanities? How does it contribute to define the relationship between method and research questions? Can we identify barriers which currently prevent Digital Humanities from developing their
full potential, leaving little room for iteration, comparison or failure? The conference itself is conceived as an experimental set-up with labs, data experiments and round tables.
