Digital approaches to the arts and humanities require new skill sets and stable infrastructures to make the digital turn a fruitful endeavor for scholars and the public. Central pieces of infrastructures are surrounding communities that not only rely on services but furthermore exchange openly about possibilities, pitfalls, and outlooks of methods and approaches.
DARIAH (short for Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) has supported this vision as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) since its inception in 2006.

DARIAH-CH, the Swiss consortium of DARIAH, hosted by the Data and Service Center for the Humanities in Basel/Allschwil, is happy to invite and welcome you this year to the Mendrisio campus of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) for the DARIAH-CH study day.
This one-day event aims to familiarize you with ongoing research in the broad field of Digital Humanities in Switzerland.

The program showcases the thriving ecosystem of research, support entities, and teaching in the Digital Humanities in Switzerland. In parallel, we want to foster an inclusive community and make you aware of existing infrastructures. We are happy to welcome 2 plenaries, 8 project presentations, 5 infrastructure pitches and 17 poster slams and presentations.

We hope that your stay in Mendrisio inspires you for your digital scholarly endeavours.

Finally but not the least, we would like to thank our sponsors, the Academy of the Arts and Humanities, the Data and Service Center for the Humanities, the University of Bern, and the Università della Svizzera italiana.
