The workshop is free, though registration is required.

The workshop will address the full range of digital toolmaking and use in the humanities and seeks to address questions such as: 

  • How do humanities researchers find out about, make, commission or use software tools?
  • To what extent is software considered a research output? How does making software influence other outputs? 
  • How are software and other digital outputs designed, funded, supported and sustained in the humanities? 
  • What kinds of training do digital humanists require?
  • What career pathways exist for digital practitioners and research software engineers in the humanities?
  • How far do digital practices in the arts and humanities intersect with their use outside academia, such as in the creative industries and the media?
  • How does the digital humanities relate to humanities work as critical practice? 
  • How do digital humanists engage with colleagues in other disciplines, inside and outside the humanities, and other audiences? Are DH outputs open, accessible and accountable, and do they apportion fair credit?
