Digital Research Infrastructure and the Humanities
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ruth Rushworth.
Over the last two decades, a computer and access to the internet have been added to, or in some cases even replaced, the standard tools of researchers and teachers in the humanities. With the increasing availability of digital content as well as seemingly abundant computing and network power, there is now a chance to make use of “big data” to counter “big science” with “big humanities” – or, in perhaps even more cases, a somewhat different “small humanities”. In order to fully unleash the potential of digital technologies, the humanities need a research infrastructure suited to new ways of working. Using concrete examples of innovative work in this area, I will argue the case for the humanities to reclaim lost ground by embracing the opportunities of the digital revolution. This will also have to include thinking about some of the challenges and looking back at lessons learned through digital humanities activities over the past five years.
