Share

The Faculty of Arts of KU Leuven and KU Leuven Libraries hosted a European Conference for the Humanities on behalf of the European Consortium of Humanities Institutes and Centres (ECHIC, http://www.echic.org/).

Like the preceding ECHIC conferences in Dublin, Utrecht, Nottingham, Oporto, Pamplona, Macerata and Edinburgh, the conference aimed to probe some of the most pressing issues facing the humanities as academic disciplines and interdisciplinary fields. In 2018, the theme was “Equip & Engage: Research and Dissemination Infrastructures for the Humanities”. Papers and discussions were focused around (challenges connected to) digital scholarship in the humanities and the dissemination and impact of the results of this research.
