Bringing together creators, practitioners, users, distributors, and custodians of Digital Resources in the Arts and Humanities.

Over the last decade the annual Digital Resources for the Humanities and Arts (DRHA) conferences have constructed an unusual kind of meeting place for the Humanities: a space in which researchers, curators, and distributors of digital resources could meet and share perspectives on their complementary agendas. Last year, that forum was expanded to include participants from the creative and performing arts, giving the event a new flavour and a new direction. This year, the conference aims to explore further major issues at the interface between traditional humanities scholarship and the creative arts, by focusing on their differing or complementary approaches to the deployment of digital technologies. Can the Arts and the Humanities share expertise? Are they divided by a common tongue? To what extent are they developing common technical solutions to different problem areas? As in previous years, the conference will articulate these questions by showcasing the very best in current practice across the widest spectrum of digital applications in the arts and humanities and by fostering informed but accessible debate amongst professionals.
