Is humanities research collaborative? Some would say that with our traditions of independent research and single authorship, it is not. This is not really true for any humanist, however, as collaboration does occur within classrooms, on-line communities, and within disciplinary networks. For the digital humanities, this is even more the case, as the hybridity of our methods require us to work together. Very few digital humanists can master entirely on their own the domain, information and software challenges their approach presents, and so we tend to work together.
This training module provides an introduction to research infrastructures targeted to the Advanced Level, and as such, presents some of the exciting new research directions coming out of the PARTHENOS Cluster. These modules approach some of the theoretical issues that shape the design, delivery and indeed the success of research infrastructure developments, challenging us to think about how we develop and support humanities at scale in the interaction with technology.
By the end of this module, you should be able to….
- Understand what is meant by collaboration in humanities research
- Be aware of how this model impacts upon the development of digital humanities, and digital humanities research infrastructures
PARTHENOS training provides modules and resources in digital humanities and research infrastructures with the goal of strengthening the cohesion of research in the broad sector of Linguistic Studies, Humanities, Cultural Heritage, History, Archaeology and related fields. Activities designed to meet this goal will address and provide common solutions to the definition and implementation of joint policies and solutions for the humanities and linguistic data lifecycle, taking into account the specific needs of the sector including the provision of joint training activities and modules on topics related to understanding research infrastructures and mangaging, improving and openin up research and data for both learners and trainers
