Workshop: Digital Humanities and Social Media. @ „The Maghreb in Transition“, Tunis, 18.-19.11.2016

Digital Humanities have developed over the last 10 years to a major methodological approach in the humanities. Building on humanities computing, DH has built an independent infrastructure within the humanities and now reaches back into several disciplines, including literature, history, history of art and social and political sciences. By stressing the quantitative approach to data and using statistical methods DH has contributed in various ways to bring up new hypothesis for old questions and revived the discussion about the place of humanities in science and
society. This workshop gives and introduction into the aims and methods of
digital humanities and addresses questions of power shifts during the digital
transition of the humanities as well as the role of social media in that
