    Pedagogy, Teaching and Research in the age of Digital
    Humanities. 8th AIUCD Conference 2019 (January 23th - 25th, 2019,
    Udine University)

The main topic of the AIUCD (Associazione per l'Informatica Umanistica e la Cultura Digitale) 2019 Conference is ‘Pedagogy, teaching, and research in the age of Digital Humanities’. The conference aims at reflecting on the new possibilities that the digital yields for pedagogy, teaching, and scholarly research: how will these transform teaching in the humanities? What contributions can humanistic cultural critique offer to the digital revolution? What is the connection with the digitization plan for Universities outlined by the Ministry? It also concerns the Digital Humanities as a new discipline, and this brings forward further considerations: how can the new professional figure of the digital humanist be developed? Which areas of knowledge define the Digital Humanities as a subject of study, research, and teaching? How can we recognise, classify, describe, and evaluate research efforts in the Digital Humanities?

While open to other topics related to Digital Humanities, proposals for contributions are particularly encouraged on the following:

      o General questions:
          + /the epistemological positioning and area of knowledge of DH
            in relation to the systems of Academic Research Areas

          + the positioning of DH in the European and International
            academic systems;
          + the evaluation of research in DH beyond traditional
          + dissemination, public history, and crowdsourcing within

            research in European projects, enquiry, and teaching.

About: The Associazione per l'Informatica Umanistica e la Cultura Digitale was established in Florence on March 25, 2011. The name chosen for the Association highlights the choice to combine the traditionally used term of Humanistic Informatics with Digital Culture, to openly encompass a wider scope than that of the disciplinary sectors, which may include all stakeholders, including cultural institutions (archives, libraries and museums) that play a key role in research and teaching in the humanities field.
