Brill Appoints Program Director Digital Humanities

Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 27 October 2016

Effective 1 November 2016 Mr. Marti Huetink, Publishing Director of the History program at Brill, will begin coordinating all business development activities of the company in the area of Digital Humanities. Next to his title of Publishing Director, Mr. Huetink will carry the title of Program Director Digital Humanities.

Brill has identified a number of core technologies which are likely to have a deep impact on research activities in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Spatial software and GIS, pattern and image recognition, semantic technologies and statistical analysis to name a few, will impact research strategies in various fields and therefore the form and nature of publications resulting from those research activities. Publications will show new features and will come with new user interfaces. The addition of data, software and multi-media are believed to influence the publication culture in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Publications will have to comply with user demands and FAIR principles. Brill is determined to play a leading role in the innovation of publishing in the fields it covers and actively reaches out to partners in the endeavor.
