Digital Humanities Course Registry logo

The Digital Humanities Course Registry is a curated platform that provides an overview of the growing range of teaching activities in the field of digital humanities worldwide.

The platform is a joint effort of two European research infrastructures:
CLARIN-ERIC and DARIAH-EU.

Purpose and Audience

Students

Do you want to start a university programme in digital humanities or want to study one semester abroad? Find all information about programmes and courses offered in various places and universities here on the DHCR.

The collection of courses and programmes can be viewed without registration. To ensure all content is up to date, all data in the DHCR is actively maintained by the lecturers or departments themselves. You can search for courses based on different criteria, for example location, disciplines, or degrees awarded.

The DHCR has been collecting course data since 2014. Historical data can be retrieved using the open DHCR-API.

Lecturers

Lecturers or progamme administrators can promote their DH-related teaching activities on the Digital Humanities Course Registry. To add data, lecturers need to sign in. We require all data contributors to actively maintain their data at least once per year.

The system will regularly send out email reminders, whenever a data set is about to expire. Course data that is not revised for one and a half year will disappear from the public listing and remains archived for future research. The system also performs regular link checking on URLs provided with the data.


What type of courses can be submitted?

  • Online courses
  • On-site courses
  • One-off workshops or recurring courses
  • BA or MA programmes
  • PhD programmes or seminars
  • Courses or modules
  • Training of professionals (continuing education)
  • Summer schools within DH

Courses held in any language or country can be submitted. We recommend providing English metadata to increase international accessibility.

National Moderators

The course entries in the DH registry are moderated by a group of national moderators who review and approve newly entered courses, provide assistance with registration issues and disseminate the DHCR activities among the institutions of their countries.

In case there is no moderator listed for your country, please contact one of the administrators if you have any questions.

Data and API

Data Model

The following entity relationship diagram gives an overview of entities in the DHCR. For a full description of their fields, please visit the API documentation on SwaggerHub.

Data API

For data export, analysis or custom visualisations, a public JSON data API is available. Examples and further documentation can be found on the API homepage
https://dhcr.clarin-dariah.eu/api/v2/.

The API follows the same REST principles to filter and sort the resulting set as the web UI does. There are two important differences:
By default, the API returns both historical and current records at once, unless the parameter "recent" is added to the query. Default sorting of courses in the API is primary id ascending, while courses in the web UI appear sorted by their modification date descending. To achive the same results, both parameters "recent" and "sort=Courses.updated:desc" have to be explicitly set in API calls.

Data Life Cycle

Course data in the DHCR is being reviewed on a regular basis by contributors. Records not updated for a certain amount of time do not appear in the DHCR website, but are being archived as historical data. National moderators are also requested to approve newly created entries.

Embedding and Filtering

The DHCR can be embedded into any other website by using an iframe. As the app follows a REST-ful URL-schema, one can pass any filter setting to the iframe by just copying the URL from your browser address bar, as you set the filters using the filter pane.

Legacy information: a special iframe embedding layout is not supported any more, the special iframe path parameter will be ignored. Also, the URL filter schema has changed due to the introduction of the new data API.

CLARIN and DARIAH

The DH Course Registry (DHCR) is a joint effort of two European research infrastructures: CLARIN-ERIC and DARIAH-EU.

Research infrastructures (RIs) are legal entities that offer technical and social infrastructures in a more stable and sustainable way than short-term research projects. They also play an important role in educating new generations of researchers.

One of the instruments for the maintenance of the DHCR is the DHCR working group in DARIAH, which aims to link research, academic teaching and the student community.

The DHCR will be maintained and further developed these two European RIs (ERICs).
