Digital technologies have opened up a wealth of methodologies that can augment and enhance more traditional research practice, allowing new ways to engage with the ever-growing web of digital data. This one-day workshop hosted by NeDIMAH with support from DARIAH will provide an introduction to these methods
NeDiMAH (Network for Digital Methods in the Arts and Humanities) is an ESF-funded network investigating the use and impact of digital methods on arts and humanities research research in Europe. It brings together the community of European scholars active in this area, as well as those engaged with creating and curating scholarly and cultural heritage digital collections.
DARIAH is a digital research infrastructure for arts and humanities scholarship. Its goal is to enhance and support digitally-enabled research across Europe, connecting collections, people, tools, and methodologies.
As part of the network's ongoing work, Trinity College’s Long Room Hub will be the venue for a free one-day symposium to analyse and evaluate the methods thus far developed within the network, and identify ways in which it can further assist scholarly research being carried out in the Digital Arts and Humanities.
This workshop will focus on the core areas which NeDIMAH has been investigating: space and time; information visualisation; linked data and ontological methods; building and developing collections for digital data for research; using large-scale text collections for research; digital scholarly editions; and the impact of digital methods on scholarly publishing.
We invite digital humanists at all different career levels, from MPhil students to advanced researchers, to join us for this event. Your experience and feedback is vital to the ongoing work of NeDIMAH and DARIAH.
This event is free but registration is required.
Space is limited. Early booking is advised. Lunch will be provided.
