DHNB 2022 – Digital Humanities in Action

The 6th Digital Humanities in the Nordic and Baltic Countries Conference (DHNB 2022) will be held at Uppsala University, in Sweden, on 15–18 March 2022.
DHNB conferences focus on research, education and communication in the interdisciplinary field of digital humanities in the Nordic and Baltic regions and beyond. DHNB 2022 highlights the two-way relationship between digital humanities theory and praxis and society. Digital humanities’ research brings together technical implementation with critical discourse to correspond to broader cultural and institutional settings.
DHNB 2022 is organised jointly by the Centre for Digital Humanities Uppsala (CDHU), the Department of ALM at Uppsala University, and the Uppsala University Library. DHNB 2022 is an on-site conference in Uppsala, with the possibility to participate digitally.
On this page we include information about registration, Covid-19 regulations and the conference timeline. On the sub-pages you can find information about the preliminary conference program, the conference workshops, visiting Uppsala, and specific information for presenters

Participating in-person

We hope to welcome as many of you as possible to Uppsala in March 2022. Due to the uncertain pandemic situation, we understand that you might want to postpone the decision if you will participate physically or digitally. For us to be able to make a conference program, however, all presenting authors need to register by 15 February 2022 at the latest (i.e. “early bird”), including deciding on physical or distance presentation format. 

If you have registered to participate physically but become sick or are unable to travel because of new regulations or other circumstances, we will of course reimburse the additional cost for the conference dinner.

Making a safe conference (Covid-19)

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are committed to ensuring a safe conference for all participants. Therefore, we comply with the recommendations and rules of the Swedish Government and the Public Health Agency of Sweden, specifically pertaining to larger gatherings and public events.

We will keep you up to date on this website regarding the rules and regulations that will be in place during the conference, as well as which measurements we take to ensure a safe environment for all. As the regulations are subject to change, we recommend for now to keep an eye on the following websites to stay up to date regarding Covid-19 regulations in Sweden, in relation to travel and events.

Covid-19 certificate

As of 1 December 2021, at gatherings with over 100 participants, everyone must show an EU Digital Covid Certificate. (Also Norway and Iceland are connected to this EU covid certificate collaboration.) Be prepared that this rule is still in place in March 2022 and a certificate will be required to enter the premises of the conference and the conference dinner. We are aware that for those coming from outside of the EU (apart from Norway and Iceland) this could potentially be a problem. If you have questions about this, and think we might be able to assist, please reach out to dhnb2022-abm@uu.se.
