DHNB 2022 – Digital Humanities in Action

The 6th Digital Humanities in the Nordic and Baltic Countries Conference (DHNB 2022) was 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 and the conference timeline. On the sub-pages you can find information about the conference program, the conference workshops, visiting Uppsala, and specific information for presenters
