Prof. Dr. Jan Christof Meister, University of Hamburg (September 20th,
1pm - 2pm Krasnoyarsk time)
Title: The Digital as остранение. A humanistic rationale for the DH.

Professor Julia Lane, University of New York (September 20th, 6pm - 7pm
Krasnoyarsk time)
Title: Democratizing Access to Digital Data

Abstract: There is enormous interest in building a better access to and use
of data. There is too little data on how data are used and by whom. This
presentation discusses work joint with  several federal agencies, major
publishers represented by the not-for-profit consortium CHORUS, and Kaggle
to develop AI tools so they can fill the gap.  The goal is to use these
tools  to produce information about data use that can.

The approach is to “read” millions of publications to find out how data are
used: what datasets are being used to solve problems, what measures are
being generated, and which researchers are the experts. Building on
previous work done by Coleridge in the past 5 years, the Kaggle competition
“Show US the Data” was launched in March 2021 and attracted 1610 data
science teams who worked for 3 months on developing machine-learning and
natural language processing techniques to find datasets that are used in
publications – beginning with, but not restricted to, scientific research.

Dr Marieke van Erp, *Digital Humanities Lab, KNAW (September 21st, 2.45pm
- 3.45 pm Krasnoyarsk time)
Title: Research on the interaction of humanities, computer science, and
cultural heritage

Abstract: The use of big, heterogeneous and diachronous cultural heritage
data is becoming more mainstream in humanities research. Working with such
data presents a myriad of challenges, that require domain expertise as well
as cutting-edge technological solutions. In this talk, I will present
ongoing work in the Cultural AI Lab and Odeuropa project that brings
together different disciplines in tackling the challenge of big data in
humanities research.

Dr Martin Grandjean, University of Lausanne (September 21st, 4pm - 5pm
Krasnoyarsk time)

Title: Beyond Visualisation: Main Challenges of Network Analysis in the

Abstract: Network analysis is a fascinating tool because it seems to reveal
the underlying structures of the objects we are studying. Its capacity for
synthesis - a network image often gives the impression that it alone sums
up the whole problem - is very useful, while its aesthetic characteristics
make it a "must have" in many Digital Humanities publications. If visual
analysis is indeed a significant part of our face-to-face with networks,
for the obvious reason that visualization was developed by means of very
intuitive graphic codes, it must nevertheless be studied as a mathematical
object produced as a result of a specific data modeling. Without being a
plea for a return to pure graph theory, we will question the relationship
to graph metrics and will evoke, by means of examples, strategies to
combine them with the traditionally more qualitative methods of the

Professor Lev Manovich, City University of New York (September 21st,
5.15pm - 6.15pm Krasnoyarsk time)

Title: The General Theory of Digital Humanities
