The VeDPH is founded upon an initiative of excellence that aims at stimulating an interdisciplinary methodological discourse to serve as basis for the collaborative development of durable, reusable, shared resources for research and learning in the field of digital and public humanities. Its disciplinary domains include Digital Textual Scholarship, Digital and Public Art History, Digital and Public History, Digital Cultural Heritage and Digital and Public Archaeology. The name magazén refers to the historical definition of public houses in the Republic of Venice, which were places of diverse human deeds and thriving including information exchange, commercial bargains and pawn brokerage. Thus the journal aspires to constitute an open platform for a wide range of disciplinary fields and methodological approaches sharing the scholarly potential of a digital and public discourse.
