For the first time in the long history of the conference, Digital Humanities are proposed as a special subject area of the conference. The coordinators of the DH division invite:
"researchers to share their experience on how digital practices, tools and methods have contributed to their research. What’s the contribution of computational power to humanities research, and how has it changed the way we look at and analyze our source materials? Has it opened up new methodological approaches, changed our research questions? And what are researchers’ solutions for handling digital culture, often multimedial, happening in real time, with various legal restrictions: how it can be tamed and transformed into research data?"
The 2018 AABS Conference at Stanford University will celebrate two important milestones – the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies (AABS) and the 100th anniversary of independence for the Baltic republics of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
The conference will bring together scholars interested in Baltic studies from all over the world and foster collaboration between Baltic and Stanford researchers. The three-day program, to be held on Stanford University campus on June 1-3, 2018, will feature panels, roundtable discussions and workshops on 16 broad topics. The conference will also include numerous additional events, such as keynote talks by leading Baltic scholars, evening receptions, film screenings, exhibits, and tours of Stanford’s Baltic collections.
