What Is Formalisation? And Why Do We Need to Talk About It In DH?

1. Abstract

The digital humanities as a discipline are centered on "formalisation". We acknowledge the fact that the machines we use employ formal languages, but we still lack a clear idea of what follows from this insight for the self-conceptualisation of the discipline. My presentation clarifies the concept of formalisation and spells out some of its practical consequences.
