From Artes liberales to Artes digitales: Ukrainian and Slavic Studies, an interdisciplinary seminar on digital humanities, 4-5 October 2019

On 4-5 October 2019, the UCU Humanitarian Faculty hosted the Interdisciplinary Seminar on digital humanities “From Artes liberals to Artes digitales: Ukrainian and Slavic studies”. The co-organizers were the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages at Stanford University and the Taras Shevchenko Institute of Literature at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Digital humanities are a relatively new research area where the methods of the humanities and computer tools meet. This combination is still rarely practices in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The seminar was aimed at uniting the efforts of researchers who were already using DH tools and becoming a forum for presenting results, building connections, and establishing cooperation partnerships, as well as giving an impetus to the development of digital humanities at UCU.
