Special feature of this workshop: a mix of "Twin Talks"
and "Teach Talks"
This workshop is special in that part of the submitted talks at this workshop 
are submitted and presented by, a humanities researcher and a digital expert 
(the Twin Talks). They report on the research carried out together, both from 
their individual perspective (either humanities research or technical), as well 
as on their collaboration experience. Another part of the talks (the Teach 
Talks) are talks by people with experience or interesting ideas about how 
cross-discipline collaboration is or can be addressed in curricula or other 
training activities.
Why two types of talks?
The main objective of the workshop is to get a better understanding of the 
dynamics on the Digital Humanities work floor where humanities scholars and 
digital experts meet and work in tandem to solve humanities research questions. 
The best way to do this seems to be to give both parties the opportunity to 
present their achievements and to share their collaboration experiences with 
the audience. The insights gained should help those involved in the education 
of humanities scholars, professionals and technical experts alike to develop 
better training programmes.
As the problem of cross-discipline collaboration is not new we also invite 
those who have relevant experience or interesting ideas about how to address 
this in university or other curricula to share their ideas with the audience.
Who should submit?
For the Twin Talks: Pairs of a humanities and a digital expert who have done 
joint research and who want to report on their work and on their collaboration 
For the Teach Talks: People (not necessarily in pairs) with relevant experience 
in or ideas about how to address cross-discipline collaboration in university 
or other curricula.
Why should you submit and/or attend?
Humanities research can only benefit maximally from new developments in 
technology if content and digital experts team up, very similar to the hard 
sciences where research is done in teams working on a specific problem, where 
everybody brings in his/her specific content and technical expertise and skills.
Co-design, co-development and co-creation are the rule rather than the 
exception, but very little is known about how this collaboration works in 
practice and how better training and education of both humanities scholars and 
digital experts could facilitate the way they collaborate. This is what this 
workshop wants to address, based on real life collaboration examples. We 
especially invite researchers, professionals, educators, and RI operators with 
a special interest in creating the conditions where humanities scholars and 
technical experts can fruitfully collaborate in answering humanities research 
Format of the workshop
The full day workshop will start with an invited talk, followed by 15-minute 
Twin Talks or Teach Talks, each followed by 5 minutes for questions and 
discussion. The Twin Talks should contain the following three components: 
presentation of the humanities problem and its solution, presentation of the 
technical aspects of the research done, and a report on the collaboration 
experience itself, including obstacles encountered and recommendations how 
better training and education could help to make collaboration more efficient 
and effective. After the talks there will be a round table discussion with all 
participants to formulate the lessons learned from the presentations, and to 
identify further steps that could be taken.
Research and teaching topics
All humanities research topics in a very broad sense are welcome, where we 
explicitly include social sciences and well as cultural heritage studies. 
Research or teaching activities may be completed or ongoing, as long as the 
presentation explicitly addresses the way the humanities researcher and the 
digital expert have collaborated or still collaborate.
What we expect from the submissions for the Twin Talks track 
- They are authored and presented by one or more humanities
   scholars and one or more digital experts
- They start from a humanities research question (i.e. not a
   technical question, a presentation of a tool, a platform or a
   data collection)
- They describe the research carried out jointly and its results
- They describe the technical aspects of the methods used and the
   results obtained
- They analyse the way the scholar and the technician
   collaborated, addressing issues such as (but not limited to):
   + What was easy and what was difficult " and why?
   + How did the researcher and technician change each other"s way
     of looking at things?
   + Did they, for instance, make each other aware of blind spots
     they had?
   + Did the combination of thinking from a DH research question
     and thinking from a technical solution lead to new insights?
   + How could better training or education of scholars and
     digital experts make collaboration easier, more effective and
     more efficient?
Submissions for the Teach Talks track
One single author and presenter is sufficient, but multi-author papers are of 
course equally welcome.
Submission instructions and important dates 
- Format: PDF. We follow the format instructions for the main
   conference, see:
