Manfred Thaller, University at Cologne: Setting the Agenda
Controversy 1: Do the Digital Humanities have an intellectual agenda or do they constitute an infrastructure?
Controversy 2: Are all approaches towards interdisciplinary research between the Humanities and Computer Science meaningfully represented by the current concept of Digital Humanities?
Controversy 3: What is the scope of the Digital Humanities? What is the relationship between individual disciplines served by them?
Controversy 4: What is the appropriate role of markup?
Controversy 5: Big structures or lightweight webs. What is the most sensible technical template for research infrastructures for the Digital Humanities?
Controversy 6: “Digital curation” or “digital preservation” is a topic, which has originated within the world of digital libraries; recently it has been drawn closer and closer to the Digital Humanities. What is the balance between conceptual work and technology?
Controversy 7: “Digital Libraries” have started their life as an answer to opportunities created by a specific stage of technical development. Where are they now, between Computer Science and the Digital Humanities?
Event: The workshop which created the proceedings accessible above took place on April 23rd and 24th at Wahn manor house close to Cologne.
