Victorian Digital Humanities Pathways Forum in Melbourne – July 14th

Next Friday the 14th of July several of our team members will be attending the Victorian Digital Humanities Pathways Forum in Melbourne.

This is a free, day-length event that will bring together local and national research groups, platforms, tools and services working across the digital humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS).

It is an opportunity for those wanting to hear about and discuss the ways in which eResearch technologies have been applied to the humanities to accelerate research projects.

The Melbourne event is built around a theme of ‘communities,’ which the VicNode Cultures & Community Engagement officer Tyne Sumner has spent the past 12 months focusing upon, especially when it comes to storage and infrastructure support for Humanities researchers. The interactive, discussions-based program means that you can have your say on how the community can come together across a range of subjects including: training, expert support mechanisms, technology platforms, data or collections infrastructure.

The program will include the following topics and speakers:
