Welcome

The Digital Humanities Lab “PSIFIS” of the Faculty of Philosophy at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was established in 2016 as a result of the collaboration between the School of English Language and Literature, the School of French Language and Literature, and the School of Philosophy, Philology and Pedagogy; it serves as an interdisciplinary and collaborative space for the exchange of opinions and ideas, training and creativity, in the field of Digital Humanities, which nowadays develops rapidly all around the world.

Digital Humanities serve as a meeting point for process methodologies and heuristic tools, by placing emphasis on collectivity for the creation of an open, hospitable, multilingual and multidisciplinary community of solidarity for the practice of Humanities, Social Sciences and the arts.

We believe everyone has something to say

The Lab aims to combine methodologies and good practices from various fields in the context of common projects that will support data management along with the production, study, preservation and circulation of any kind of tokens, thus supporting and promoting research across all fields.

In order to fulfil this aim, the DHLab aims to develop and distribute technical skills and to integrate them in the individual projects, to access special software and to spread technical knowledge and experience through workshops, speeches, information days, conferences and common projects. Students’ participation is highlighted in order to create a group of young scientists who shall participate in this emerging field with excellence and effectiveness; this group shall focus on methodological reflection, on evaluating materials and products in the field as well as on forming study programs.

The DHLab focuses indicatively on:

  1. Innovations and useful approaches of the new digital reality across all its dimensions with emphasis put on practices that concern literacy, reading, analysis,  and polysemy  
  2. Innovative research, publication and publishing facilities
  3. Creating, processing and analyzing digital content automatically and semi-automatically
