CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Digital Humanities and Philosophy, 28 June 2013, Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS

http://axiom.vu.nl/activities

The Digital Humanities are booming. However, philosophy is 
underrepresented in the Digital Humanities. This workshop has three aims: 
(i) to present computational methods that can be used by philosophers; 
(ii) to present research in which philosophical problems are studied by 
means of computational methods; (iii) to reflect on the relevance of 
research in the Digital Humanities for research in the humanities and 
philosophy.

Everyone interested in the digital humanities and philosophy is cordially 
invited!

Attendance is free, but please *register *by sending an e-mail to
