Workshops and tutorials

Workshop 1
TwinTalks 2: Understanding and Facilitating Collaboration in DH

Organized by Steven Krauwer (CLARIN ERIC / Utrecht University), Darja Fišer (CLARIN ERIC / University of Ljubljana)
Time and place: 09.30–18.00, 17 March 2020, the National Library of Latvia
Workshop website: https://www.clarin.eu/event/2020/twintalksdhn2020
Submission deadline:  6 January 2020
Aim: The main objective of the workshop is to get a better understanding of the dynamics on the Digital Humanities work floor where humanities scholars and digital experts meet and work in tandem to solve humanities research questions. The best way to do this seems to be to give both parties the opportunity to present their achievements and to share their collaboration experiences with the audience. The insights gained should help those involved in the education of humanities scholars, professionals and technical experts alike to develop better training programmes.

Workshop 2
Parallel Corpora as Digital Resources and Their Applications

Organized by Natalia Perkova (Stockholm University / Uppsala University), Dmitri Sitchinava (Institute of the Russian language / Higher School of Economics)
Time and place: 09.30–18.00, 17 March 2020, the National Library of Latvia
Workshop website: https://parallelcorporadhn2020.github.io/
Deadline for submissions: 27 January 2020
Target audience: The aim of the workshop is to bring together specialists working on the development of parallel corpora or the data from such corpora and to share our knowledge on different areas of their applications and the variety of methods used in the studies based on parallel texts. The major focus of the workshop will be the parallel corpora of particular relevance for Northern Europe, though participants from other countries or those working with other languages are also very welcome to contribute by presenting their research.

Workshop 3
Intellectual History and the Digital Humanities: Prospects and Challenges

Organized by Benjamin Martin (Uppsala University), Mark Hill (Helsinki University)
Time and place: 13.30–17.00, 17 March 2020, the National Library of Latvia
Website: https://markjhill.github.io/ih-and-dh/
About: In this workshop, we bring together an international group of historians actively engaged with these questions for a half-day of presentations, discussion and debate, focusing on four themes:
1. What Can DH Do for Intellectual History (and Vice Versa)?: An introductory panel discussion
2. Networking Intellectual History: Digital network analysis for historians of science and ideas
3. (Digital) History of Concepts: How are digital methods changing conceptual history?
4. How To Do It: Models of collaboration between intellectual historians and data scientists.

Discussions of the use of digital methods in a particular humanistic field often become highly technical, with a focus on a particular practical problem or programming-related solution. In this workshop, by contrast, we will combine short presentations on on-going research with ample discussion, in a round-table format, designed to address broader issues about the significance and value of digital methods for the way intellectual historians pursue their field’s most important goals.


Workshop 4
Hands-On Research Data Management for Digital Humanities

Organized by Annika Rockenberger (University of Oslo Library)
Workshop website: https://arockenberger.github.io/rdm-ws_dhn2020/
Time and place: 09.30–18.00, 17 March 2020, the National Library of Latvia
Target audience: Researchers of all levels from the humanities and adjacent disciplines as well as specialists from the archives, libraries and museums sector. The workshop will be tailored to a European audience with guidelines and routines most relevant for the Nordic and Baltic countries.


Workshop 5
An introduction to computer vision for working with maps

Organized by Daniel van Strien (Living with Machines, British Library), Katie McDonough (Living with Machines, The Alan Turing Institute), Kaspar Beelen (Living with Machines, The Alan Turing Institute), Kasra Hosseini (Living with Machines, The Alan Turing Institute), Amy Krause (Living with Machines, The University of Edinburgh)
Workshop website: https://davanstrien.github.io/CV-for-maps-DHNoridic2020workshop/
Time and place: 09.30–18.00, 17 March 2020, the National Library of Latvia
Annotation: This practical workshop will explore how we can use modern computer vision methods to work with maps. The workshop will use Python tools to extract information from maps at scale and explore some of the potential challenges of using this approach. The workshop will also take some time to discuss theoretical implications of these methods for both researchers and GLAM institutions.
Intended audience: researchers, curators and librarians interested in using computer vision with digitised visual materials.
Requirements: participants will need a laptop with access to Chrome or Firefox.
Prerequisites: experience with Python and Jupyter notebooks will be advantageous but it should be possible to follow without this. 


Workshop 6
Higher Education Programs in Digital Humanities and Social Sciences: Challenges and Perspectives

Organized by Koraljka Golub (Linnaeus University), Isto Huvila (Uppsala University), Olle Skold (Uppsala University), Nuno Otero (Linnaues University), Marianne Ping Huang (Aarhus University), Mikko Tolonen (University of Helsinki)
Time and place: 09.30–18.00, 17 March 2020, the National Library of Latvia
Deadline for abstract submission: 7 January 2020.
Submissions: Participants are encouraged to submit proposals for presentations in the open section of the workshop programme. The presentation should address a specific topic related to the workshop theme and be presented in 10 minutes with minutes Q & A.
