Digital Humanities Congress

The Digital Humanities Congress is a conference held in Sheffield every two years. Its purpose is to promote the sharing of knowledge, ideas and techniques within the digital humanities.

The inagural congress was held in 2012 and featured keynote talks from Professor Andrew Prescott (University of Glasgow), Professor Lorna Hughes (University of London, School of Advanced Study) and Professor Phil Etherington (University of Southern California).  The conference proceedings are available online.

The second conference in 2014 featured a wide programme of 54 papers including roundtable sessions on the AHRC Digital Tranformations theme and keynotes from Professor Laura Mandell (Texas A & M University), Dr Fred Truyen (KU Leuven) and Professor Paul Arthur (The University of Western Sydney).

The Digital Humanities Congress is organised with the support of Centernet.
