Tazuko van Berkel (OIKOS Research Platform Digital Classics)
We are delighted to announce a workshop on Friday 26th August, 10am-5 pm, to be held at the Sterrewacht building at Leiden University, Sterrewachtlaan 11, C 005.
The Digital Humanities are flourishing, but they are still largely focussed on textual and visual objects. These are objects of sight, but a significant portion of human life is experienced through sound – in our day to day communication, in the music that we listen to, in the soundscapes of urban and rural life.
