Main Building, Room HG-02A06
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The Digital Humanities are booming. However, philosophy is underrepresented in the Digital Humanities. This workshop has three aims: (i) to present computational methods that can be used by philosophers; (ii) to present research in which philosophical problems are studied by means of computational methods; (iii) to reflect on the relevance of research in the Digital Humanities for research in the humanities and philosophy.
Everyone interested in the digital humanities and philosophy is cordially invited! Attendance is free, but please register by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
