HILT 2015

HILT 2015 occurred from Monday, July 27 to Friday, July 31 on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, located in Indianapolis, IN and was sponsored by the Center for Digital Scholarship at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis University Library, the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, and MATRIX: Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences at Michigan State University. HILT 2015 welcomed over 100 digital humanists to the IUPUI campus, with representatives from liberal arts institutions, research universities, and cultural heritage organizations. More than half of attendees were graduate students, early career scholars, or humanities adjuncts representing over a dozen different humanities disciplines and sub-disciplines. This iteration of HILT responded to the growing demand for new types of digital aptitudes, as well as to our recognition of how important these opportunities are in revealing the daily work and research lives of digital humanities scholars.
