On June 24 and 25, 2020, the Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences (TSHD) at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, organizes a two-day Digital Humanities Symposium.  This workshop brings together scholars from a range of disciplines, including Philosophy, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Cultural, Literary and Media Studies, Communication and Information Sciences, and Cognitive Science. How do we bring the Humanities together with digital tools, methods, and epistemologies? Together, we will reflect on practical and theoretical issues regarding the ways that digitalization and datafication are transforming our fields.
