Building Digital Capacities through Collaboration. The case of Proyecto Humboldt Digital (Havana/Berlin)

From 10th to 14th July, Proyecto Humboldt Digital (ProHD) participated in the Digital Humanities 2023 conference in Graz (Austria), organized by the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). The annual conference is aimed at digital humanities scholars and practitioners around the world.

ProHD fited well into the focus this year conference Collaboration as Opportunity. Because the project itself is a cooperation project between two institutions the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (Germany) and the Oficina del Historiador de la Ciudad de La Habana (Cuba). Both teams were there to take part in the conference. If you want to read more about the experience in Graz, here is a post about the whole week in Graz. This post is about the presentation Prohd held at the conference.

At the conference, ProHD was part of the panel “Institutional Collaboration. Together with other two projects, ProHD team members Tobias Kraft, Antonio Rojas Castro and Grisel Terrón presented the paper: “Building Digital Capacities through Collaboration. The case of Proyecto Humboldt Digital (Havana/Berlin)“. The presentation introduced the project, focusing on the strategies for building digital capacitites through collaboration. The international collaboration, that this project brings with itself, has not been limited to carrying out a technical workflow but continuously organizes the exchange of research activities and experiences, and builds on a wide set of both internal (team oriented) and external (community oriented) training activities. Despite restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, short stays in both Havana and Berlin have taken place since 2019 as well as monthly meetings in virtual format; more recently, in 2022 an international DH conference and a workshop about digital scholarly editions took place in La Habana (Cuba) organized by the team members. During these encounters, we were able to define software requirements, present our main results, share the main issues and progress made in retrospect, and plan our following activities in order to publish online a collection of texts related to Alexander von Humboldt’s trip to Cuba in the 19th century.

ProHD would like to thank the conference organizers for the opportunity to participate in this interesting event!
