Digital Humanities Workshop: How to Write a Data Management Plan

Sign up required. The aim of these workshops is to demystify the Data Management Plan and give you the skills to approach this area of your bid with confidence. Though each bid and DMP is unique, there are common elements and a degree of formula that can be learned, so most DMPs do not need to be written entirely from scratch. We would encourage any academic in HUMS to attend a workshop, even if you do not have an AHRC bid in progress, as they cover transferable content on best practices when working with data. All sessions will run in Digital Humanities Lab Seminar Room 1. Full details

Digital Humanities Workshop: A Practical Introduction to Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI)

Sign up required. RTI is a technique to photograph a subject’s surface texture, which can reveal detail and phenomena not usually visible under normal examination. This interactive 2-hour course will examine the basic principles of RTI, showing what can be achieved using highlight and dome-based methods, and will provide practical guidance for using the method in a wide range of applications. An understanding of the principles of photography (e.g. Photography Basics) is useful but not essential. Full details

Digital Humanities Workshop: The whats, whys and hows of digital textual scholarship

Sign up required. This workshop will offer a combination of presentation, discussion, and exposure to TEI XML in order to explore why and how you might want to make your own digital edition. It will explain the advantages of creating texts in a digital format and give a very basic introduction to TEI encoding, which is widely used to create editions today. It will explore different ways of publishing online, and discuss the complexities of digital editing, including issues of sustainability, cost and support. Despite these challenges, the workshop will argue that digital scholarly editing can be a deeply rewarding and fruitful undertaking that enables innovative research and teaching – through skills that can be learnt by anyone.
