Downstream from the Digital Humanities: A Round-Table Discussion
Thursday 05 March, 2:00 - 4:00pm
An Foras Feasa, Iontas Building, Maynooth University
This round-table discussion, led by leading researchers in Digital Humanities across Europe and North America, will explore current debates in the humanities surrounding issues of publication, communication and evaluation that have been engendered by the systemic changes in the scholarly communications landscape as a result of new technologies and methodologies.
While publication venues and opportunities have widened greatly, researchers must make calculated decisions when choosing to embark on a digital project or non-traditional publication venue: not just about their research questions, their digital tools and methods, and how best to address or implement them, but about their careers, their institutions and their scholarly record. In spite of a general recognition of the value of digital scholarly outputs, many institutions and national systems still struggle to judge the merit of such outputs and credit their creators accordingly.
These ecosystem difficulties cover many areas, but one common characteristic is that many of them arise "downstream" from the activities of digital humanities scholarship, that is, after a work of scholarship has been completed and released to the audience of peers and public. This seminar will explore these issues.
