DARIAH Nordic Hub
A Nordic Hub within DARIAH was initially an idea launched by DARIAHs Mike Mertens. At the International Digital Humanities Symposium hosted by Linnaeus University in November 2016, several Nordic universities met to discuss possible joint opportunities and challenges in digital humanities.
The rationale for a Nordic Hub is that investigation of new ways of interactions between society and Information Communication Technologies (ICT) with a focus on the Humanities has the potential to become a key success factor for the values and competitiveness of the Nordic region.
The current status of the DARIAH Nordic Hub is that the following are looking into a closer collaboration:
- Aarhus University (Denmark, DIGHUMLAB)
- Helsinki Digital Humanities Centre (Finland, HELDIG is a joint collaboration between University of Helsinki and Aalto University)
- Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway)
- Linnaeus University (Sweden, Digital Humanities is a cross-faculty initative)
Representatives from the institutions will meet in Aarhus on February 17th to discuss joint opportunities. If you have ideas or prospects for the DARIAH Nordic Hub, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
