DRH is a series of annual conferences whose goal is to bring together the creators, users, distributors, and custodians of digital resources in the humanities.

DRH 2004 will be hosted by the University of Newcastle upon Tyne on Sunday 5th to Wednesday 8th September 2004.

The 2004 Conference aims to address some of the key emerging themes and strategic issues that engagement with ICT is bringing to humanities computing and scholarly research. Themes for 2004 include:

University of Newcastle upon Tyne

  • Methods in humanities computing.
  • Cross-sector exchange between heritage, national and local government, and education bodies.
  • Broadening the humanities computing base.
  • New forms of scholarly publication.

The Call for Proposals for Papers, Panels and Posters is now closed.

The list of speakers, the outline programme, and the timetabled programme are now available. Speakers and poster presenters should see our page on guidelines for presenters.

DRH 2004 is delighted to welcome as plenary speakers the European Commissioner and Chancellor of the University of Newcastle, the Rt Hon Christopher Patten, the Director of ICT at the AHRB, Professor David Robey, and the Director of the Great North Museum Project, Ian Watson.
