Call for Papers – DARIAH ERIC Annual Event 2022: Storytelling

DARIAH ERIC (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) announces a call for papers for the annual event 2022, to be held as a hybrid event between 31st May and 3rd June 2022 in Athens, Greece. Its topic is storytelling. “The power of storytelling as a sense-making and knowledge-creation strategy is deeply embedded in human cultures, reaching back as far as our written records, and looking as far forward as our technological imaginations. How we gather, share, and use our stories says much about who we are, how we entertain and educate, how we build identities and understand the world beyond our vision, how we relate to our past and to our future,” says the introduction to the event. By looking at the research practices in the arts and humanities, the DARIAH community builds conceptual bridges between the arts, technology, humanities, and beyond. A title and an abstract of the proposed contribution are to be submitted by 11th February 2022.

DARIAH European Research Infrastructure

The pan-European research infrastructure for the arts and humanities scholars aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research and teaching across the arts and humanities. It develops, maintains, and operates an infrastructure in support of ICT-based research practices and sustains researchers in using them to build, analyse and interpret digital resources. By working with communities of practice, DARIAH brings together individual state-of-the-art digital arts and humanities activities and scales their results to a European level. It preserves, provides access to and disseminates research that stems from these collaborations and ensures that best practices, methodological and technical standards are followed.


DARIAH ERIC European Research Infrastructure Consortium

DARIAH was established as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) in 2014. Currently, DARIAH has 20 Members, 1 Observer and several Cooperating Partners in 6 non-Member Countries. The Czech national node is LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ, which is included in the Roadmap of Large Research Infrastructures of Czechia. LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ has joined the consortium in 2019, after “an excellent and fruitful collaboration in the DESIR project” as Jennifer Edmond, President of the Board of Directors of DARIAH ERIC, says. One of the strengths of the LINDAT/CLARIAH-CZ consortium is the inclusion of libraries and other national heritage institutions as partners in the research infrastructure, as well as the technology strength of 3 technology-oriented partners (Charles University, University of West Bohemia in Pilsen, and Masaryk University) in the areas of natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and multimedia processing.
