Adapting the humanities to an increasingly digital age
This Friday (13th June) the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter in Oxford will play host to the dhAHRC Project, an exciting new initiative in association with The Oxford Research Centre for the Humanities (TORCH) and funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
‘Building Scholarly Resources for Wider Public Engagement’: this day-long workshop will comprise a number of talks on a diverse range of topics, addressing pertinent research skills and tools such as crowdsourcing, sharing data and a variety of Oxford digital projects, including a keynote address from the Director of the OeRC. The programme boasts a list of internationally-renowned speakers, all of them leading specialists in humanities research, and after each seminar there will be an opportunity to ask questions about each presentation.
Included in the price of the ticket is tea and coffee, a sandwich lunch and, following the final Q&A, a wine reception, which will give delegates the ideal opportunity to discuss with the speakers, in a more informal setting, their methods of capitalising on the latest digital tools in their research. This event is open to all and will be of particular interest for graduate students and early-career researchers who look to have their project stand out through the effective use of the most innovative digital tools.
