        Subject: short film on new technology in the humanities

Since May 2012, TextGrid (www.textgrid.de http://www.textgrid.de/ ), a Virtual Research Environment for the arts and humanities, has been available in v2.0 for scholars for the collaborative creation and use of digital research data, as well for long-term data curation. The potential of VREs, as well as the various ways scholars are working with them, is demonstrated in a short film recently produced by TextGrid called "Virtual Research Worlds: New Technology in the Humanities", which is now available for download on YouTube:

English: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjO9epVZHa0
German: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRBYR9OA45Q

Produced with the generous financial support of the D-Grid GmbH as well as with the versatile contribution by TextGrid and DARIAH colleagues and by the Göttingen State and University Library staff, the film addresses a general public, aiming at communicating a complex field of research in an easily understandable manner.

Feedback and comments are welcome!
