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