Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon 2024 #DHH24

A a chance to experience an interdisciplinary research project from start to finish within the span of 10 days

Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon #DHH24 will be organised on 15.–24.5.2024 as a CLARIN and DARIAH international summer school.

The event will be organised as an in-person hackathon. Participation to #DHH24 is free to all accepted participants.

For researchers and students from computer science and data science, the hackathon gives the opportunity to test their abstract knowledge against complex real-life problems. For people from the humanities and social sciences, it shows what is possible to achieve with such collaboration. For both, the hackathon gives the experience of intensely working with people from different backgrounds as part of an interdisciplinary team, as, during the hackathon, each group develops a digital humanities research project from start to finish. Working together, they formulate research questions with respect to particular data sets, develop and apply methods and tools to answer them, and present the work at the end of the hackathon.

This year, the hackathon groups are organised around the following four themes:

  1. Eurovision Song Contest

  2. Enlightening Illustrations: Analyzing the Role of Images in Enlightenment-Era Luxury Books

  3. Echoes of the Chambers: Studying Democracy through Parliamentary Speeches

  4. Cultures of online discourse
