A one-day event to mark the end of the ‘Computational Humanities’ projects. During the morning, members of each of the project teams will present key findings and provide hands-on sessions so that we can all explore the data, tools and results they have developed. During the afternoon, we will have four short keynote lectures, exploring important cross-cutting themes.

Ray Siemens, Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing, will talk about collaboration in all of its aspects, across disciplines, with users and societal partners. Franciska de Jong, Executive Director of CLARIN, will address infrastructural and policy issues facing digital humanities.
