DHSI 2022

[From the DHSI website:]

We are thrilled to be hosting DHSI 2022—Online Edition (June 6-10) this year, which will consist of several aligned conferences & events, institute lectures, and workshops. This page is dedicated to the virtual aligned conferences & events:

Conferences will consist of pre-recorded video presentations available to registered participants and some combination of 2-hour Zoom and Twitter discussions during the week of DHSI. A few days before the scheduled discussion, registered participants will gain access to the password-protected presentations and will have a chance to prepare questions and comments. During the scheduled time, presenters will engage in a Zoom and/or Twitter Q&A and discussion. Please see the below descriptions for further details.

To register for aligned conferences & events, online workshops, and/or institute lectures, please complete the form available at the following link: https://events.eply.com/dhsi-2022-online-edition-registration.

Event chair: Chris Tanasescu (UCLouvain)

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm PDT Friday, 10 June

All those connected to DHSI and its 2022 edition are invited to be part of the EPoetry event #GraphPoem by MARGENTO by contributing text files or weblinks to a collectively assembled dataset and/or run a script plotting the latter into a real-time evolving network.

The Graph Poem is an ongoing transnational project combining natural language processing and graph theory-based approaches to poetry, with academicDH-literary, and performative outputs.

When DHSI registration opens, participants will be able to sign up for GraphPoem and will receive an account giving them access to the data and the code.

#GraphPoem will have two main components viewable to anybody accessing the following online venues at the time of the event: a livestreamed performance on Margento’s Facebook page and the bot @GraphPoem tweeting text-nodes selected from the evolving graph by a network analysis algorithm and fed into the performance.

To register for DHSI 2022—Online Edition, please complete this form.
