The 6th Digital Humanities in the Nordic and Baltic Countries Conference (DHNB 2022) will be held at Uppsala University, in Sweden, on 15–18 March 2022.
DHNB conferences focus on research, education and communication in the interdisciplinary field of digital humanities in the Nordic and Baltic regions and beyond. DHNB 2022 highlights the two way relationship between digital humanities theory and praxis, and society. Research in the digital humanities moves beyond technological implementations to include debates and critical discourse on topics directly relating to society, such as, for example, activism in broader cultural and institutional settings. DHNB 2022 welcomes presentations relating to how digital humanities respond to society outside the immediate confines of academia, for example concerning stakeholders of memory and culture (e.g., Media, GLAM institutions and other memory and heritage actors), and the more immediate societal and political sphere. The DHNB 2022 conference has the ambition to put digital humanities in action.
DHNB 2022 is organised jointly by the Centre for Digital Humanities Uppsala (CDHU), the Department of ALM at Uppsala University, and the Uppsala University Library. Due to the pandemic, the conference will be held as a hybrid event, which enables participants the choice of digital or physical participation. More information about this and other practicalities will follow.
A call for submissions will be out in May/June 2021.
