The III International Conference of the HDH wants to focus on the crucial role played by Digital Humanities, addressing three critical dimensions: societies, politics and knowledge.

The development of computational technologies and the expansion of the digital medium have led to important social, political, cultural and epistemological transformations. Digital Humanities, as a field of research, critical reflection and action, have become one of the key pillars in this process, contributing to the advance of digital culture as well as to its critical analysis. Thus, the practice of Digital Humanities helps us expand the new ways of production and distribution of knowledge, culture, social actions, political discourses, etc., which are building the new 21st century societies, but, at the same time, also helps us be aware of their underlying imbalances and uncertainties.

The III International Conference of the HDH wants to focus on the crucial role played by Digital Humanities, addressing three critical dimensions: societies, politics and knowledge. The main question posed by the HDH2017 is: how are the Digital Humanities contributing – or might contribute – to the transformation of these dimensions in the diversity of the territorial and cultural contexts where the Digital Humanities are developed?
