May 11 – May 20, 2022
The Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon #DHH22 dates have been confirmed: 11.–20.5.2022. As a CLARIN and DARIAH summer school, this event will be an in person event, aiming to welcome applications from all over Europe and beyond! This year, the organisers are prepared to sponsor dozen or more participants from outside Finland with flights and accommodation (more information to follow). Participation to #DHH is free to all accepted participants.
The Helsinki Digital Humanities Hackathon is a chance to experience an interdisciplinary research project from start to finish within the span of 10 days. 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. For information on what the hackathon was like in previous years, see #DHH21, #DHH19, #DHH18, #DHH17, #DHH16 and #DHH15.
3–6 ECTS credits may be gained from participating in the hackathon for students in University of Helsinki and other universities.
