Publié le mardi 26 février 2019 par Anastasia Giardinelli

Résumé

The DARIAH Annual Event 2019 thematizes a catalogue of research questions that arise when we speak of Humanities Data. At the very heart of this topic linger questions around the type and amount of data that humanists collect: what kind of data do we have; where is it; and who owns it? Is our data indeed complex, and if so, what makes it complex? How do definitions and conceptualisations of the term ‘data’ resonate with or, perhaps more accurately, alienate us from our conceptions of our source landscape as art and humanities scholars? And, of course, how will the major European policy initiative to build an Open Science Cloud for research data impact upon our practices and opportunities? The upcoming DARIAH Annual Event 2019 combines forms of encounter developed in prior meetings, such as Working Groups meetings, workshops organised by Working Groups and projects, and a Marketplace to exchange ideas around new research projects and infrastructural solutions with an open conference setting.

Presentation

The DARIAH Annual Event 2019 thematizes a catalogue of research questions that arise when we speak of Humanities Data. At the very heart of this topic linger questions around the type and amount of data that humanists collect: what kind of data do we have; where is it; and who owns it? Is our data indeed complex, and if so, what makes it complex? How do definitions and conceptualisations of the term ‘data’ resonate with or, perhaps more accurately, alienate us from our conceptions of our source landscape as art and humanities scholars? And, of course, how will the major European policy initiative to build an Open Science Cloud for research data impact upon our practices and opportunities? Getting an overview of the nature of Humanities Data might be one way of designing new infrastructures to process them. We can ask for the current existing archetypical big data collections and establish alliances with data science to scale up workflows. Above all, the key challenge is to keep a reflexive open discourse about the function of data for specific research questions, and the development of a culture to address the whole spectrum of ‘data needs’ of humanities scholars across all fields, all forms of collaboration and all societal relevant questions. These issues and questions will be at the heart of our discussions at the DARIAH Annual Event 2019.

DARIAH is a European Research Infrastructure for the Humanities and Arts. It is dedicated to the empowerment of humanities scholars supporting them in their quest for new ways of knowledge production which in the long run are indispensable ingredients for cultural innovations on a larger societal change. The DARIAH Annual Event offers the DARIAH community and everybody who wants to engage with DARIAH the possibility to present results and new ideas; and to meet and network.

We are delighted to announce Sally Wyatt as keynote speaker for the DARIAH Annual Event 2019. Sally Wyatt is Professor of Digital Cultures, Maastricht University, The Netherlands. Between 2011-2017, she was the Programme Leader of the eHumanities Group of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. For many years, she has been doing research about what digital technologies mean for the production of knowledge in the humanities and the social sciences. The title of her talk is ‘What are we talking about when we talk about data in the humanities?

This year’s event takes place in Warsaw, May 15-17. The deadline for submission of contributions is March 15. More information about venue, programme, etc. will be available from the website in due course.

Submission Guidelines

The upcoming DARIAH Annual Event 2019 combines forms of encounter developed in prior meetings, such as Working Groups meetings, workshops organised by Working Groups and projects, and a Marketplace to exchange ideas around new research projects and infrastructural solutions with an open conference setting. This call for participation is subdivided into two streams:

  1. Meetings

  2. Papers/posters

For all contributions, a title and extended abstract (max. 1000 words) are to be submitted via the Submission page of the website. The extended abstracts will be published as a book of abstracts.
