Call for Papers: Digital Parliamentary Data in Action

Submitted by Elisa Gorgaini on 26 November 2021

The call for papers for the workshop ‘Digital Parliamentary Data in Action’ co-located with the 6th Digital Humanities in the Nordic and Baltic Countries Conference (DHNB 2022) is now open.

The accessibility of parliamentary data is a democratic issue and raises questions about how such datasets can be used to empower citizen participation and enhance the transparency of political work and decision making. Hence, curation and research of parliamentary records, as well as the development of new tools and user interfaces relevant for the parliamentary data are embedded in critical societal discussions, and bear consequences from both scholarly and citizen perspectives.

These developments have led to enhanced opportunities and challenges for research and development. The workshop therefore draws together scholars across different disciplines to explore and showcase results and ongoing work on creating, publishing, and using digital parliamentary data in digital humanities research and applications. The aim is to foster interaction between the scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and computational sciences.

Deadline for submitting the papers: 13 January 2022
