To celebrate its fifth year, the Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon is going international. As a CLARIN and DARIAH summer school, the hackathon welcomes applications from all over Europe and is prepared to sponsor close to 20 participants from outside Finland with flights and accommodation.
Participation to #DHH19 is free to all accepted participants.
About the hackathon
The Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon is a chance to experience an interdisciplinary research project from start to finish within the span of 1½ weeks. For researchers and students from computer science, the hackathon gives the opportunity to test their abstract knowledge against complex real-life problems. For people from the humanities and social sciences, it shows what is possible to achieve with such collaboration.
For both, the hackathon gives the experience of intensely working with people from different backgrounds as part of an interdisciplinary team.
This year, we will have four areas of interest with one or more groups per topic, each with up to eight participants + group leaders.
- The Many Voices of European Parliamentary Debates
- Genre and Style in Early Modern Publications
- Brexit in Transnational Social Media
- Newspapers and Capitalism
