As we are all going through some unprecedented and peculiar times, with COVID-19 spreading globally and disrupting the ways in which we work, collaborate, interact, conduct research and are being productive, Research and Innovation Center "Athena", as co-ordinator of the Project APOLLONIS, the Greek Infrastructure for Digital Arts, Humanities and Language Research and Innovation, is organizing a Twitter Conference under the title "DH in the Time of Virus".

The Conference will take place on Thursday 2 April 2020 (13:00-17:00 CET). This event is envisaged as part of a series of digital initiatives across the world to battle academic isolation and to facilitate and support community building and osmosis in DH research and education. The topics of the Twitter Conference are the following:

  • Distance education / e-Education
  • Remote research / e-Research
  • Defeating isolation: digital tools, methods and platforms
  • Digital History / Philology / Archaeology of Disease and Epidemic
  • Medical / Health Digital Humanities.

The Twitter Conference 15-minute / 20-tweet presentations will be by invitation, but wide participation and contribution is expected by following the hashtag #DHgoesVIRAL.
