The DAH Digital Conference 2016 will take place in Trinity College Dublin on Friday 18 November 2016. The conference is open to current students of the Digital Arts and Humanities PhD programme and to the wider public and will discussion panels and keynote speakers on the theme ‘Digital entanglements: the post-digital present’.

The conference will host two very special, high-profile guest keynote speakers: Prof. Steven Jones (University of South Florida) will open proceedings with the morning keynote address, and Dr. Maria Chatzichristodoulou (London South Bank University) – aka Maria X – will close proceedings with her evening address. Professor Jones' keynote address is titled “The ‘Digital’ Humanities After The Eversion”, while Dr Chatzichristodoulou will speak on “Encountering the Digital in Performance: Deployment, Engagement, Trace”.

Rod Stoneman, Emeritus Professor of NUI Galway and former Director of the Huston School of Film & Digital Media, will speak on “Renegotiating the Digital: the Return to the Analogue”. 

There will also be morning and afternoon panels, during which academic staff with the DAH programme will discuss the current state of the Digital Arts and Humanities and future directions.

The multi-institutional collaborative PhD program in Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH), is a four-year structured doctoral research-training programme designed to enable students to carry out research in the arts and humanities at the highest level using new media and computer technologies. The DRI is the Royal Irish Academy's co-ordinating body in DAH. 

Registration for the conference is now open to the wider academic community. Registration is free but places are limited. To register for the conference, download the programme and read more about the conference theme visit the DAH website.
