The aim of DHA 2018 is to advance and critically assess the uses of digital technologies in humanities research and the communication of its outcomes. The conference offers a supportive, interdisciplinary environment to explore the challenges and opportunities of working with digital tools and techniques.

The conference will explore how the Digital Humanities enhance our ability to make connections between disciplines, sectors, countries, ways of thinking, people and possibilities. Sessions will focus on praxis and innovation across the international scene, with emphasis on local and regional communities of practice in Australasia and the Pacific. Together, delegates will explore how academics can use data and digital tools to tackle real world challenges in partnership with collecting organisations, industry, government and communities.
