Projects

The EADH brings together, and represents, the Digital Humanities in Europe. It includes the entire spectrum of disciplines that research, develop, and apply digital methods and technologies to the study of art, history, language, literature, music, archeology, etc. But what is the current situation of the field in Europe? And is it possible to document and promote access, use and collaboration between groups and universities?

With the goal of gathering representative works, we have created a slider that will showcase initiatives for a period of time. We are looking for projects undertaken during the last five years that contribute meaningfully to Digital Humanities in Europe. If you want to add your Digital Humanities project to our website, please fill in our web submission form with a project description and your contact details.

At the moment submissions are accepted in English. All submissions will be reviewed by the EADH executive committee.
