Call for Papers

The Centre for Digital Humanities at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE.DH) calls for abstracts for its second annual conference which will take place in Budapest, 25–27 September 2019 – in collaboration with the COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary Historyproject and the DARIAH Central European Hub. While last year the conference seeked to survey the current state of research in digital humanities in general, this year DH_Budapest_2019 will keep a narrower focus on theories and practices of distant reading.page1image1012014000

The term distant reading (i.e. using computational methods of analysis for large collections of texts) is meant here in a general sense: regardless of genres and disciplines on the side of the used or built corpus, and regardless of computational methods adopted or developed during the research. We encourage speakers to present their work where innovative, sophisticated, data-driven, computational methods play a key role in a scientifically relevant research.

We invite submission of abstracts on subjects from a variety of fields related to digital humanities and social sciences concerning but not limited to following topics:

  • Corpus building using markup languages
  • Automatic and manual corpus annotation
  • Named entity recognition (NER) and named entity linking (NEL)
  • Wikification, wikiDATA linking
  • Stylometry, authorship attribution
  • Vector spaces and neural networks as distant reading tools
  • Network modelling, prosopographical networks
  • Distant reading of historical sources
  • Digital literacy, digital pedagogy
