The Cologne Dialogue on Digital Humanities @ Wahn Manor House in 2012
A workshop on the current status of the Digital Humanities, Wahn Manor House, Cologne,
April 23rd / 24th 2012.
“Computing in the Humanities” has been a field of studies, which originally derived much from two different roots: On the one hand the strong believe, that there must be easier ways to handle a couple of hundred thousand small details than write them on 5” x 8” cards; on the other an intellectual climate, which assumed that different traditions of the Humanities and hard sciences could and / or should converge, of which C.P. Snow’s famous lectures have rather been a symptom, than the cause. The field has been influenced by rather different developments. Intellectual or methodological fads, as e.g. the popularity of interdisciplinary reception of the methodology of the (empirical) Social Sciences during the sixties and seventies. Technological innovation: Strangely enough, when new key technologies arise, as the PC or the WWW, during the first few years there seems always to be a widespread conviction, that with that technology a totally new methodological platform for the interdisciplinary cooperation between the Humanities and information technology and its conceptual underpinnings flourishes. And, of course, funding possibilities: It seems to be doubtful whether the term “Digital Humanities” would exist, if the huge funding programs for Digital Libraries at the turn of the millennium would never have arisen; it seems to be almost beyond doubt, that nobody would have thought of “eHumanities”, if the promise of funding for eScience would not have been there.
