The Value of the Digital. #DHJewish Conference and Hackathon

DHJewish conference Potsdam 2024

The second DHJewish conference and hackathon will take place on 10-12 April 2024 in Potsdam. The event is organised by the Moses Mendelssohn Center for European-Jewish Studies together with the C²DH. The hackathon is co-organised with the Network Digital Humanities at the University of Potsdam.

The conference aims to critically (re)assess the value(s) of the Digital for the field of Jewish Studies as it has been developed and discussed over the past ten years.

Including all phases of research and dissemination from collecting and exploring to constructing and communicating, we will discuss the benefits and pitfalls of the Digital in general and for the field of Jewish Studies in particular. This can be done both from a retrospective—what has worked well and which promises have and have not yet been fulfilled—and from a forward-looking perspective—highlighting directions that might be worth pursuing. In doing so, we take up the recent critical turn in DH and apply it to the field of Jewish Studies. The event includes a hands-on-hackathon.

The conference and Hackathon is generously supported by the European Association for Jewish Studies (EAJS) Conference Grant Programme in European Jewish Studies.
