Lectures from Digital Humanities 2012

The Digital Humanities 2012 conference was held in Hamburg, Germany this week. From the conference website:
Digital Humanities is the annual international conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). ADHO is an umbrella organization whose goals are to promote and support digital research and teaching across arts and humanities disciplines, drawing together humanists engaged in digital and computer-assisted research, teaching, creation, dissemination, and beyond, in all areas reflected by its diverse membership.
The conference program is located here: http://www.dh2012.uni-hamburg.de/conference/programme/
It includes links to abstracts and where you see a link for "Lecture2Go" there are recorded presentations you can watch.  A few titles that caught my eye include:

"The potential of using crowd-sourced data to re-explore the demography of Victorian Britain"
http://lecture2go.uni-hamburg.de/konferenzen/-/k/13917
"Social Network Analysis and Visualization in The Papers of Thomas Jefferson"
http://lecture2go.uni-hamburg.de/konferenzen/-/k/13945
and "Uncertain Date, Uncertain Place: Interpreting the History of Jewish Communities in the Byzantine Empire using GIS"
http://lecture2go.uni-hamburg.de/konferenzen/-/k/13962

Those were just a few.
