We’ve just prepared the final reports for DH 2012, so it’s time to wrap up. This was DH2012 in a nutshell:
- 10 pre-conference workshops plus a boot camp
- an opening keynote by Claudine Moulin and a closing keynote by Masahiro Shimoda
- close to 2oo papers and presentations in five tracks during the main conference (most of them available as podcasts – call up the program to get there)
- 536 registered participants from all over the world
- student assistant bursars from Canada, India, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand and Russia, plus a crew of Hamburg students joining them
- lots of interesting exchanges, stimulating ideas, cutting-edge projects and
- fun and laughter at the social events, plus
- unprecedented media response!
A special DH2012 issue of LLC. The Journal of Digital Scholarship in the Humanities is already in the making and due to be published in 2013.
Thank’s for coming to Hamburg and making this happen – it was a pleasure hosting the DH! And thanks once again to our sponsors DFG (German Research Foundation), Google Inc., Oxford University Press and VolkswagenStiftung who helped us to finance the DH and its fringe events. See you at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for the DH 2013, 16-19 July!

It’s more than 2 weeks now since the DH2012 officially ended. We are still recovering from this amazing experience, but have meanwhile collected some first photo impressions. You can find the DH2012 in pictures here. Dear photographers, please come forward, in case you have any more to add!Read More
In case you are interested in the media echo for the DH2012: we have now begun to document print, online and broadcast releases as well as commentaries here.Read More
The results of our online survey are now accessible:Read More
15 minutes to go until the closing ceremony for DH2012 begins and a strange mood is setting in at the info point and reception desk: sure, we’re a tiny bit exhausted – but we’re also sad that everything will soon be over! It somehow feels like we should keep the party going for just a little bit longer … (which we will definitely do tonight at the Beatles tour!) But before you shed some tears with us, join us for Masahiro Shimoda’s keynote lecture, the Fortier Prize Giving and the Closing Ceremony!Read More
We hope you had as much fun at the conference banquet as the local organizing team and our student assistants did! More than 200 DH 2012 delegates enjoyed excellent food, fine drinks and the great show of Hamburg’s one and only Surf Band Skuzzlebuzz! The crowd was dancing and the party went on until past midnight – but for sure today’s sessions are as exciting as the other ones and you’ll stay awake until the closing session at 16:00.Read More
It is the last day of DH2012 and we will soon be starting to wipe our tears and saying goodbye. But let’s focus on today’s programme: we have a few cancellations for Friday. T. Declerck’s presentation in LP 23 and the short paper presentations of C. Tatum and S. Wiesner in SP 08 are cancelled. We will close this conference in the afternoon with the keynote speech of Masahiro Shimoda from 16:00 – 17:00 followed by a few final words of thanks and DH perspectives. Don’t forget to pick up your poster from the West Wing Foyer in case you want to take it with you!Read More
Good morning everybody! It’s raining again in Hamburg – what a perfect day for enjoying the DH2012 sessions. There are no big changes today; however, we have one cancellation in SP 05, Lecture Hall, as the short paper presentation of R. Beer was cancelled. Buses for the Senate reception will leave directly after the last session from the Shell gas station from 17:30; our team will guide you there. Please bring your printed invitation for the entrance control! Anyone who hasn’t found an invitation in the bag (i.e. late registrants),Read More
In the old building of Hamburg University standing on the staircase between the lecture halls Steve Crossan from the Google Cultural Institute speaks to the DH community. In his green T-Shirt he evokes an informal and friendly impression. Starting with the anecdote, that everybody in Paris tends to call him “Monsieur Croissant” he charms the audience immediately. At the foot of the staircase a delicious cold buffet and cold drinks are waiting to refresh the digital humanists at the end of a full conference day. Google is not only sponsor of this conference reception but also is engaged in numerous DH projects.Read More
At the dh2012 one meets a lot of interesting people from all over the world. But all the meeting and greeting makes it hard to remember what places they come from or wich kind of projects they work on. That is why we worked out an online survey. You tell us what you are doing (anonymously) and we show you who the digital humanists are on a screen in the main building. So please follow this link whenever you have a few minutes of free time: Online SurveyRead More
