Research Data and Humanities – RDHum 2019
University of Oulu, August 14-16, 2019 Digital resources and technology are used more and more within the humanities and the social sciences. Researchers in digital humanities gather, administer and share rapidly accumulating digital resources. They also need various research methods and tools in working with these resources. The conference Research Data and Humanities (RDHum) seeks to gather researchers around these themes. In addition to researchers, we invite teachers, graduate and postgraduate students as well as other interested parties to participate and to contribute. RDHum 2019 is jointly organised by the University of Oulu and the University of Jyväskylä, in collaboration with FIN-CLARIN<http://www.kielipankki.fi/organization> and Kielipankki<https://www.kielipankki.fi/language-bank/>, The Language Bank of Finland. The event is the first in the series of conferences taking place every other year in one of the universities within the FIN-CLARIN Consortium. The working languages in the conference are Finnish, Swedish and English.
