use of computation in such areas as the arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, and other areas reflecting our cultural heritage
research issues such as: information design and modelling; the cultural impact of the new media
the role of digital humanities in academic curricula
Proposals should report significant and substantive results and will include reference to pertinent work in the field (up to 10 items) as part of their critical assessment.
The range of topics covered by humanities computing can also be consulted in the journal of the associations: Literary and Linguistic Computing (LLC), Oxford University Press.
