About DHIB2019

The Center for Arts and Humanities (AUB), AMICAL Consortium, Orient Institut Beirut (OIB), The Department of English (AUB), University Libraries (AUB) and the Office of Information Technology (AUB) are happy to host the third iteration of the Digital Humanities Institute – Beirut (DHI-B 2019), that will take place 3-5 May, 2019 at the American University of Beirut.
 
This year, DHI-B's theme revolves around "Consolidating Local, Regional, International, and Consortial Collaborations in Digital Humanities Communities." This third iteration of the Digital Humanities Institute – Beirut will build upon progress made in both research and community building in Lebanon, extending outward to Egypt, the UAE, Canada, the USA, and members of the AMICAL Consortium. The event aims to consolidate on all previous efforts to create a culture of collaboration and openness in research and pedagogy in the Digital Humanities, as well as to encourage growth of communities of practice, by providing Digital Humanities training with a regional and international focus.  It is founded on the principles of co-learning and co-teaching of a community of faculty, students, librarians, technologists, and instructional design staff.
