Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon welcomes applicants

DHH24 logo

Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon #DHH24 will be organized 15.–24.5.2024 as a CLARIN and DARIAH-EU international summer school. The event will be organized as an in-person hackathon. Participation to #DHH24 is free to all accepted participants.

Since 2015 the Helsinki DHH offers a chance to experience an interdisciplinary research project from start to finish within the span of 10 days. For researchers and students from computer science and data science, the hackathon gives the opportunity to test their abstract knowledge against complex real-life problems. For people from the humanities and social sciences, it shows what is possible to achieve with such collaboration.
 
For both, the hackathon gives the experience of intensely working with people from different backgrounds as part of an interdisciplinary team, as, during the hackathon, each group develops a digital humanities research project from start to finish. Working together, they formulate research questions with respect to particular data sets, develop and apply methods and tools to answer them, and present the work at the end of the hackathon.

Each year, participants are organised around four thematic areas of interest each working under the auspices of group leaders. This year’s themes are:

  • Eurovision Song Contest
  • Enlightening Illustrations: Analyzing the Role of Images in Enlightenment-Era Luxury Books
  • Echoes of the Chambers: Studying Democracy through Parliamentary Speeches
  • Cultures of online discourse
