Digital Humanities Benelux Conference 2017

The DH Course Registry

An online platform for announcing and finding Digital Humanities courses across Europe



How many DH courses are on offer in Europe? Where can you learn about game studies? Who teaches future digital classicists? Where can you learn more about big data, artificial intelligence and virtual reality? Who teaches text mining for literary studies? Which courses teach how to work with digital analysis tools for oral history data? Who offers classes on digital scholarly edition? The DH Course Registry will help you to answer these and other DH-related questions.


The DH Course Registry encourages enrolment in DH classes and showcases DH courses. Recently the existing platform for the sharing of information on DH courses has been relaunched as a joint effort of the European research infrastructures CLARIN ERIC and DARIAH-EU. In the future it will be further developed and maintained as a collaboration of the two ERICs. The Course Registry currently contains a selection of DH courses offered by European academic organizations. An extension of the registry content beyond Europe can easily be pursued. Students, lecturers and researchers can search the database on the basis of disciplines, topographical information (location), ECTS credits or the academic degrees that are awarded. In addition, courses can be searched for using TaDiRAH, a Taxonomy of Digital Research Activities in the Humanities (including labels for techniques and objects) and sub-disciplines from the Social Sciences and the Humanities.


The goal of the registry is to provide information to: (i) students and researchers who intend to take up study in the DH field, (ii) lecturers who are looking for examples of good practices in the DH field or want to promote their own DH-related teaching activities and material, and (iii) administrators who aim to attract and facilitate staff mobility and exchange. Apart from this, the DH Course Registry aims to be as inclusive as possible and only has some very basic restrictions in order to keep the information in the database relevant and DH-focused. For each country that has some form of representation in CLARIN and/or DARIAH a dedicated National Moderator will be appointed to ensure the accuracy of the database, curate the data and reach out to students, lecturers and administrators in their respective countries. The Course Registry is a living project: CLARIN and DARIAH will constantly add more information on DH training in Europe and beyond. Users are encouraged to help us increase the coverage and to suggest courses and programmes here.


During the DH-Benelux Bazaar, we will walk you through the interface of the Course Registry and will explain the various steps needed to use it in its best way. We are looking forward to meeting you there, answer your questions and hear your suggestions.
