Current and former DRI staff will speak at “Digital Humanities Centres: Experiences and Perspectives” in Warsaw in December. DRI Programme Manager Paddi Leinster, along with Rebecca Grant of the National Library of Ireland and Sharon Webb of the Sussex Humanities lab, will present on the subject ‘Openness and Transparency in Digital Humanities Project Management and Development: A Reflection from the Digital Repository of Ireland’.
About the conference:
Digital Humanities (DH) research always takes place within a specific institutional context, which is constituted by both science system and its societal environment. DH centres, which are being launched all over the world, have therefore to face a number of challenges in order to function effectively and fulfill the potential of DH. The conference 'Digital Humanities Centres: Experiences and Perspectives' will be an opportunity to share experiences and reflect on the perspectives of DH institutions. The consideration of different aspects of DH centres activities from various points of view will hopefully enable participants to come with new ideas and solutions useful in they day-to-day work.
The event is organized under the auspices of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), the Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH EU), the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Ministry of Digital Affairs and the Committee of Linguistics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
