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.

Call for papers, Autumn 2014

The Digital Scholarship Seminar invites proposals for its fourth series of seminars focusing on new ideas and work in progress in the area of Digital Scholarship.

We particularly welcome presentations on:

  • Critical perspectives on the use of technology in arts and humanities research.

  • Reflections on the intellectual, technical and project management challenges of ongoing or recently completed projects.

  • Ideas for potential projects that might be developed in a group discussion.

The seminar aims to meet approximately once a month. Sessions will ideally take a workshop format, with presentations of c. 15–20 minutes geared towards generating lively discussion afterwards.

Please send a short proposal (150 words max.) by Friday 26 September 2014 to either or both of the contacts below.
