From the announcement:
Digital Humanities research always takes place within a specific institutional context, which is constituted by both science system and its societal environment. DH centres, which are being launched all over the world, have therefore to face a number of challenges in order to function effectively and fulfill the potential of DH. The conference “Digital Humanities Centres: Experiences and Perspectives” will be an opportunity to share experiences and reflect on the perspectives of DH institutions. The consideration of different aspects of DH centres activities from various points of view will hopefully enable participants to come with new ideas and solutions useful in they day-to-day work.
