LW Research Day 2019 on Digital Humanities
09 September 2019

Universiteit Gent

On Monday September 9, 2019, the second LW Research Day takes place. Central theme is ‘digital humanities‘.

From a research perspective the term ‘digital humanities’ refers to the use of digital tools in existing research in the humanities, but also to new methodological opportunities and challenges arising from the use of digital tools, and even to the development of new methods for and to face new scientific challenges. The faculty wants to focus on the digital literacy of its staff in the coming years. During the LW Research Day we organize several lectures and information sessions, and we highlight the research of our faculty.

Musicology-IPEM presents the following demonstrations of ongoing research in its laboratories in the Krook:
