DRI at Digital Humanities 2016

DRI Director Dr Natalie Harrower and Digital Archivist Rebecca Grant are taking part in Digital Humanities 2016 (DH2016) in Krakow from July 12-16. DRI are co-organising a workshop, 'Evaluating Research Data Infrastructure Components and Engaging in their Development' with RDA and the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), and Natalie Harrower is among the workshop's facilitators. 

The purpose of this workshop is to conduct a meaningful examination of the data fabric and infrastructure components being defined by the Research Data Alliance, to test their relevance and applicability to the needs of the digital humanities community, and to discuss opportunities for humanities engagement in further solutions development. It will be a full day workshop in the format of a hand-on round-table and open discussion. A full description of the workshop can be found here.

As well as co-organising the RDA/ADHO workshop, DRI staff will be involved in other aspects of DH2016. On Friday 15 July, Dr Natalie Harrower is chairing a panel on the topic: 'Digital Data Sharing: Opportunities and Challenges of Opening Research', at which DRI Digital Archivist Rebecca Grant will also be speaking. The panel addresses research data management (RDM) and the sharing of research data in the digital humanities.
