Study Day 2023


Encouraged by the success of the Study Day 2022, the DARIAH-CH consortium organizes its 2023 edition, which takes place at the University of Bern on Friday 20th of October.


The event has the objective to bring together members of the Swiss DH community and experts working in national and European research infrastructures, and to enable the encounter between these actors. The event is organised by Tobias Hodel, professor of Digital Humanities at the University of Bern, with the support of Christa Schneider (UNIBE), Laura Strub (UNIBE), Rico Sennrich (UZH) and Cristina Grisot (DARIAH-CH). The event is funded by UNIBE, DaSCH and Academy for Social and Human Sciences. 


In the programme, we have a round table about the use of crowdsourcing in the Humanities, a talk about ethical and legal issues in the Arts and Humanities, data pitches by PhD students and post-doctoral researchers and pitches by experts working in the area of research infrastructures. Infrastructure pitches are followed by counselling sessions offered by the experts to the researchers who pitched their data.
