  2. 2. Or: How to deal with square pegs and round holes in our research
  3. 3. Introduction Digitisation and interdisciplinary collaborations: • Benefits • Obstacles • Conditions Examples KNAW Humanities Cluster and CLARIAH Break out groups: How does digitisation affect your research practice and environment?
  4. 4. Commodity Frontiers (Ulbe Bosma) Mapping 600 years of resource extraction • Perspective not from the centres of world capitalism, but from the peripheral zones of extraction • Based upon: • Wealth of existing digitised sources (from archives to JSTOR) • Natural Language Processing • Extraction of data from large data dumps • Linked Open Data • GIS combined with LOD
  5. 5. Dynamic Economies (Rombert Stapel) Or: how to capture (and explain) realistic long-term spatio- temporal dynamics in pre-modern demographic data? 14th c. census Old school: tables, maps, diagrams (static and aggregated) New school: historical GIS ...and beyond: GIS + gravitational models/networks (population size vs. travel time)
  6. 6. The Refugee-Migrant Dichotomy (Adina Nerghes) The European refugee/migrant crisis in social media: • Understanding the debate on the crisis, the patterns of label use in online discussion, and the sentiments associated with these labels • Methods: • Theories drawn from the humanities and social and communication sciences • Computer Science and Computational linguistics • Expert knowledge of social media platforms and the refugee crisis

  8. 8. Break-out Groups (20 minutes) Quick intro: name + discipline + affiliation + two sentences about your data/problem/use case 1. What can digital humanities contribute to questions of economic disparity, migration, environmental degradation, and social mobility? 2. What is good (digital) research in this field? 3. How can we facilitate good (interdisciplinary) research? 4. What is the greatest bottleneck that needs to be solved now?
