Description

NOTE: The Canberra Digital Humanities Pathways Forum is currently at capacity! To be notified if any spaces open up, please add your name to the waiting list via email: comms@ersa.edu.au

You're invited to attend our Canberra Digital Humanities Pathways Forum.

The DH Pathways Forum will have humanities, arts and social science (HASS) researchers and the cultural collecting sector (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) professionals speaking about the links between research, data, and national infrastructure.

The Forum is an opportunity for scholars and collecting professionals to find out about contemporary data and technology intensive research and collection practices.

The aim of the Forum is to enable an exchange of ideas and discussion around current research, data management practices and infrastructure, and explore future possibilities of interoperable national research infrastructure in service of humanities, arts and social science. The theme for the Canberra event is two-fold: data centric (data arising from research, public administration or cultural production, and data curation practices that impacting scholarship) and infrastructure (where data is stored and how data is made accessible and used).
