 A Framework for Supporting the Digital Humanities

Speaker: Erin Snyder, Digital Humanities Manager, Nottingham University

Digital humanities is growing in the UK. In some cases, this is evident in the formation of new centres and departments dedicated to the study of DH. However, many institutions are doing very fine digital work throughout many departments, while others may not have the resources for a DH centre. Using the Digital.Humanities@Oxford project as a case study, and touching on the model of the University of Nottingham, this seminar presents practical steps that can be taken toward the development of a decentralized institutional infrastructure to support digital humanities work.

Decentralized DH provides an opportunity to engage a wide community of practitioners, particularly as this form of DH is often broadly multi-disciplinary. In this way, a digital discipline can make use of digital resources to compensate for physical dispersal, and to promote new work that might otherwise have been impossible.

A sandwich lunch will be provided. To book a place, please email Heather Scott heather.scott@open.ac.uk by 26 November 2012.
