Digital Scholarship Seminar

The Digital Scholarship Seminar is a seminar for researchers working in any branch of the arts and humanities who are engaged in the creation and/or exploitation of digital resources in the course of their research.

The aims of the seminar are:

  1. To build and reinforce connections among the community of scholars in NUIG currently working on projects with digital elements.
  2. To provide a network of support for academics and students beginning new research programmes with a digital focus.
  3. To facilitate sharing of expertise among researchers engaged in digital methods and scholarship.
  4. To increase awareness of current digital projects among the wider research community.
  5. To bring outside expertise on digital research to NUIG on a regular basis with invited speakers.
