7th International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities 2016

Digital Scholars, an emerging profession

December 1-3, 2016

National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan



In the past few decades, the digitization of cultural heritage has become an integral part of cultural preservation and social development.  More and more humanities disciplines and scholars also acknowledge digital humanities as a critical component in research and education.  Starting from research centers on digital humanities, many universities are also developing educational programs, degrees, and departments on digital humanities.  However, does this imply the arrival of digital scholarship as a new paradigm?


The theme of this year’s conference is “Digital Scholar, an emerging profession?”.  We wish to explore the knowledge nature of digital humanities: how it is defined, created, disseminated through the dialogues between humanities and digital technology; how the communities are formed; how the researchers are and should be evaluated and recognized by the scholarly community at large; how and whether digital humanities, as a discipline, is emerging.
