Todays expanding digital landscape constitutes an important research object as well as the research environment for the Humanities at the beginning of the 21st century. Taking this state of affairs as a starting point the inaugural lecture will present a vision for how the digital affects the interplay between four areas which until now to a certain extent have been separated: Traditional Humanities, Digital Humanities, Media studies, and Internet studies. The vision is followed by an outline of how it can be unfolded in concrete activities, in the form of research projects, research infrastructure, and research organisation.

The inaugural lecture will be in Danish and will be followed by a reception outside the auditorium.
Both lecture and reception are open for everyone.

Time: 28 August 2015, 15.00 (precisely) to 16.00.
Place: Nygaard-bygningen, Peter Bøgh Andersen Auditoriet (5335-016).
