Digitorium is the Digital Humanities Conference hosted by the University of Alabama.  Inspired by working with scholars and students in many different departments, the Alabama Digital Humanities Center created Digitorium, with the generous support of the University Libraries and the Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies in the Department of English at the University of Alabama, to provide a new venue to discuss the wide range of digital methods which are used and shared by researchers, graduate students, and practitioners from both the humanities and also the social sciences. The conference name, Digitorium, was inspired by the Medieval scriptorium as an early center for the creation, visualization, and dissemination of knowledge. Now, once more, with the evolution of digital techniques such as data visualization and computer-driven textual analysis, we are experiencing another revolution in the circulation and development of ideas, and it is our intention with Digitorium to provide a space in which people working in Digital Humanities can share and grow their work.
