Emerging technical and computational resources are now being used to provide access to knowledge and reshape its meanings. Increasingly, new approaches designed for the collection, analysis, and visualization of large data sets are becoming relevant for investigations in the arts and humanities. The conference will showcase different approaches, ranging across established disciplines ( including literature, music, art history, etc.) to new archives and endeavors, as well as provide a venue for a discussion of the implications and possibilities of this kind of work.
