Home / Inauguration of the Swe-Clarin toolbox – e-science for the humanities and social sciences

On Friday, October 7th, 10 am – 20pm we will show the new version of the Swe-Clarin toolbox at an inauguration ceremony in Ågrenska villan, University of Gothenburg. During the course of this day, researchers from different disciplines in digital humanities will talk about their experiences with using language data as primary research data. There will be stations where our tools are presented and a possibility to try them out with guidance. The evening will end with a mingle and refreshments.

The day is organized as an open house with buffé lunch and coffee/tea for all participants. While it is not mandatory to register beforehand, we appreciate registration. As this is a national event, we have the possibility to cover travel expenses for some participants. If you are interested, please indicate this in the form below and we will be in contact soon.
