We are very happy to announce the launch of the new website #DHJewish - Jewish Studies and Digital Humanities: dhjewish.org.
The #DHJewish website offers a single access point to news, events and projects on the intersection of Jewish Studies and Digital Humanities. It also provides an online community (powered by the open-source team collaboration tool Zulip) as well as a dedicated Zotero group library. Furthermore, we are building a directory of people. You can also follow us on Twitter: @DHJewish.
#DHJewish was developed and is hosted by the Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) at the University of Luxemburg. It is run by an international editorial board that consists of heritage practitioners and scholars from various countries and represents several professional organisations, including the European Association for Jewish Studies, the network „Jüdische Geschichte digital“ of the German Association of Historians, the Association for Jewish Studies and Association for Jewish Libraries. The project was supported by the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe. On this page you will find more information on the genesis of the project.
#DHJewish is a work in progress as we continue to add projects and other relevant information. We welcome any feedback and/or suggestions for new projects to add. If you would like to share any news or event please let us know at dhjewish [at] gmail.com. We also encourage you to send us your details to get listed in the people directory.
The #DHJewish website is part of a bigger project that included the international conference #DHJewish - Jewish Studies in the Digital Age. This online event brought together more than sixty scholars and heritage practitioners to discuss how the digital turn affects the field of Jewish Studies. An edited volume with selected papers from the conference will appear in the book series Studies in Digital History and Hermeneutics (De Gruyter Oldenbourg) in September 2022.
