Uppsala University Library

Digital Humanities Forum

The Digital Humanities Forum arranges various activities, such as seminars on related subjects and workshops on how to use a range of datasets and digital tools.

The area of digital humanities may be defined as a set of particular methods and practices used in searches and analyses of various types of digital material, in making the humanities digitally available, in new forms of teaching and in critical reflection on digitisation.

The Digital Humanities Forum brings together researchers and practitioners in the field. Its aims are to create scope for discussion and experience-sharing and, in the long term, to develop more permanent modes of organisation, devise forms of technical support in the University and shape joint multidisciplinary research and development tasks. In this area, since the major university libraries have long had a leading role in digitisation that especially affects the humanities, researchers and libraries have a mutual interest in collaboration.
