As part of the DARIAH-DESIR project, a series of three-day workshops will be organised in 2018 and 2019, one at Stanford University, one at the Library of Congress, and one in Australia, allowing an exchange of ideas between the DARIAH community and Digital Arts & Humanities projects in the US and Australia.
The purposes of the workshops are to promote DARIAH tools and services, to initiate collaborations, and above all to exchange knowledge and experience in digital scholarship on an international level.
The workshops will focus on shared areas of expertise between the DARIAH Working Groups and host institutions. Key topics are sustainability of infrastructures, digital text analysis, geo-humanities, image collections and annotation, music and performing arts, collections as data, and web archives.
This blog will report on all three workshops, providing insight into the topics discussed and knowledge shared, to encourage those unable to attend the event to continue the international dialogue sparked by these initial points of exchange.
DARIAH (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) is a pan-European infrastructure for arts and humanities scholars working with computational methods. It supports digital research as well as the teaching of digital research methods. The DESIR (DARIAH-ERIC Sustainability Refined) project sets out to strengthen the sustainability of DARIAH and firmly establish it as a long-term leader and partner within arts and humanities communities.)
DESIR has received funding from the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 731081
