The Digital Resources for the Humanities conference brings together creators, users, distributors, and custodians of digital resources in the humanities.

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

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.

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:

  • 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 and Panels is now closed, but Proposals for Posters is still open on the Web site.

    The provisional list of speakers and the outline programme are available online.

    Accommodation is being arranged via the Newcastle Gatesead Initiative and all bookings for accommodation should be made from their dedicated webpage. Bookings for accommodation will close on August 8th.
