NeDiMAH Round Table Discussion Event: Presenting NeDiMAH to the Croation Digital Humanities Communities

Following the NeDiMAH Steering Committee meeting, a NeDiMAH round table discussion was held on the morning of 14 November 2014 at the Library of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Strossmayerov trg 14, Zagreb. As the NeDiMAH project is nearing completion, this event examined the work of the network, and considered its aims and goals since 2011, in light of Horizon 2020 and other funding opportunities open to multinational collaborations and partnerships.  The event asked "where to next?" and acted as a forum to consider how the European digital humanities communities can participate in this activity collaboratively.

The round table presented goals and perspectives of NeDiMAH, and discussed current themes and trends with the nascent digital humanities community in Croatia.  Contributions from members of the NeDiMAH Steering Committee offered a chance  to see where and how they can contribute not only to national, but to a wider European digital humanities community.  Over 70 people attended the event from a range of institutions in Croatia (including Institut za etnologiju i folkloristiku, Filozofski fakultet Sveučilišta u Zagrebu, Institut za hrvatski jezik i jezikoslovlje, Nacionalna i sveučilišna knjižnica u Zagrebu and Arhiv za likovne umjetnosti HAZU) and beyond.
