On Thursday 12th November Marco will be giving a talk at the Göttingen Computer Science Cookie Seminar series entitled “Digital Humanities for Computer Scientists … or: How I became infected with the Indiana Jones virus”. Here the abstract of his talk:
Many definitions have been formulated to describe the Digital Humanities, driven either by political interests or born out of one’s own approach to it. This cookie talk describes my understanding of the Digital Humanities as an IT person and aims to show what computer scientists can contribute to our cultural heritage. The talk summarises several applications and developments that have been designed by my teams and me since 2008.
