Digital Humanities Early Careers Conference
New Perspectives in the Digital Humanities is an annual conference in the King’s College London Department of Digital Humanities. This initiative started in 2016, and is typically led by first-year PhD candidates, though we boast a wide attendance by staff and external delegates from all over the UK and abroad. This year, we welcome our principal, Professor Ed Byrne, for an address.
Conceptions of identity, community, and space are given a new dimension in the digital age. Particularly since the mid 20th century, there has been a significant interest in the myriad ways that human identity is developed and expressed through technology. Researchers have adopted new tools and adapted old ones in order to account for the ways in which the digital serves to inform, organize, record, and explain both individual and communal identity. It is this flexibility to both adopt new tools and critically interrogate them that is at the centre of digital humanities.
