• Network Digital Humanities

The vision: a network for digital humanities in the university city of Potsdam.

The digital transformation is changing broad fields of research in the humanities: from research infrastructure and the routines of publication to the handling of sources, editions and research data, as well as the digital methods of analysing literary texts and cultural artefacts. Additionally, the Digital Humanities face the task of reflecting the digital change of our society.

In order to confront these challenges and to realise the innovative potentials of this development, a research initiative at the University of Potsdam bundles together activities in the field of Digital Humanities. The goal of the research initiative is to establish interdisciplinary connections of different institutions and players based in Potsdam: between the institutions of the Faculty of Philosophy, as well as other faculties of the University of Potsdam. There will be co- operation with other research facilities in Potsdam, such as the University of Applied Science in Potsdam, and also between regional, national and international institutes affiliated to Digital Humanities.
