Why a Global Fishbowl?

Disciplines are subject to changes, which are primarily reflected in a gradual differentiation of topics, methodological approaches and the development of sub- or transdisciplines. In this event, we want to examine digital humanities in a global perspective: What distinguishes the digital humanities, for example, in Germany, Russia, the Lebanon or the United States? Are there any regional peculiarities about infrastructures, topics, or methods? And what challenges, but also opportunities for doing digital humanities, arise in these different locations?

In order to discuss digital humanities in a global perspective, this event will bring together DH-Representatives from different countries and positions to share their experiences. This event is part of the virtual trip organised by the MWS as part of the vDHd2021. Since this virtual conference series focuses on EXPERIMENTS, as a format, we are not choosing a “normal” panel discussion, but a virtual fishbowl. The advantage of a fishbowl is that it actively allows the entire audience to participate in a conversation with our Representatives.

Who are the DH-Representatives?

Organized by the Working Group Digital Humanities of the Max Weber Foundation
