On Friday 12th – the second day of the conference “Digital Humanities Experiments #dhiha6” at the German Historical Institute Paris (DHIP) – we will try the dialogic form Conversation-Stations, or ConverStations (see the arcticle “The program explained“). The participants will debate different topics at different tables with different people.
The value of failure in science, table animated by Claudine Moulin (IEA/University Trier)
Unsuccessful attempts or what might be considered as “failures” in Science have not really been reflected on in Humanities. Especially in the new constellation of “success” in humanistic Academia being increasingly measured by indices, third party founding rankings and (publication) ratings I would like to turn the attention to the positive sides of unsuccessful attempts and the context of experimentation in Digital Humanities.
