#DHIB2019

Theme: Consolidating Local, Regional, and Consortial Collaborations in Digital Humanities Communities
Location: American University of Beirut
Date: May 3-5, 2019

This year, DHI-B’s theme revolves around “Consolidating Local, Regional, and Consortial Collaborations in Digital Humanities Communities.” The DHI-B 2019 will build on our previous efforts to carry the momentum of DHI-B 2017 in line with our notion of Digital capacity building and experience with digital humanities research and methods. The event aims to foster a culture of openness in teaching and research and in the digital humanities, as well as to encourage growth of communities of practice, by providing digital humanities training with a regional focus.  It is founded on the principles of co-learning and co-teaching among a community of faculty, librarians and instructional design staff.

This third iteration of the Digital Humanities Institute – Beirut will build upon progress made in both research and community building in Lebanon, extending outward to Egypt, UAE and members of the AMICAL consortium. The event aims to consolidate on all previous efforts to create a culture of collaboration and openness in research and pedagogy in the digital humanities, as well as to encourage growth of communities of practice, by providing digital humanities training with a regional and international focus.  It is founded on the principles of co-learning and co-teaching of a community of faculty, librarians and instructional design staff.

A sustained effort to host digital humanities related events has been ongoing since 2013 at AUB, including Digital Humanities@AUB in 2013, various fora and undergraduate and graduate courses offered in the Department of English, Digital Humanities Institute – Beirut 2015, Digital Humanities Institute – Beirut 2017, and Stylometry Workshop in 2018.
