This project will give postgraduate students and early career researchers in the Arts and Humanities a leading role in knowledge exchange between social media practitioners in academia, museums, archives and libraries, and the voluntary sector. Through a scholarship scheme, workshops and a conference, the Social Media Knowledge Exchange will help postgraduate students and early career researchers to develop skills to build their networks, reputation and esteem as researchers at a point when this is critically important to their careers, and provide them with structured opportunities to learn about social media practice outside their own discipline and institution, and in a wide variety of sectors beyond academia.
The project will run from March 2012 to October 2013 and is led by the University of Cambridge (Cambridge Digital Humanities Network (CDHN) and the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH), in partnership with the Centre of Governance and Human Rights (CGHR). Partner institutions are the UCL Digital Humanities Centre (UCLDH) at UCL, the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), School of Advanced Studies, University of London, the Humanities Advanced Technology Information Institute (HATII) at the University of Glasgow, and the Department of Digital Humanities (DDH), King’s College London.
