Researchers in the Humanities and Social Sciences are increasingly turning to digital tools in their research, whether through the use of digital research methods, such as data-mining or 'distant reading' of texts, through the interpretation of digital sources including social media data, or through the creation of digital research outputs, from digital editions to visualisations, websites and databases. Digital tools also offer new possibilities for collaboration with other researchers or with wider publics through 'crowdsourcing' or Citizen Science methodologies.
This forum will provide researchers who are planning research projects involving digital elements, or who are extending and developing existing digital research projects, an opportunity to hear about different sources of support within the University including:
- Advice on finding funding bodies for digital research
- Support for concept development and proposal planning
- Access to digital methods workshops and training
- Support for digital development work through the University Library Advice on using digital tools for dissemination and public engagement
Speakers: Anne Alexander (Coordinator of the Digital Humanities Network), Grant Young and Chris Stokoe (Digital Services, University Library), Paul Calleja and Richard Mee (University Information Services).
The Lunchtime Forum will be held at the Alison Richard Building, Sidgwick Site in Room S1, first floor, on Tuesday 10th June 2014, 12-1.30pm with the opportunity for more informal networking and arranging advice following the presentations and discussion.
Please note: bookings for the forum are now closed. If you would like to be notified of future events on this topic please email Anne Alexander (raa43 @ cam.ac.uk)
The forum is a brown bag seminar so please bring your own lunch.
