Digital Frames: on Digitisation and (as a) Scholarship

Overview

Digital Humanities is an expanding multidisciplinary field at the intersection of digital technologies and the humanities. This session is part of a series of complementary Digital Humanities workshops organised to help you think about the potential digital technologies may have for your research. Please note that if you would like to attend other workshops in the series you should sign up for each one separately via the BGRS Training Timetable.

The aim of this series is to provide you with the tools you may require to see digital possibilities in your project and to encourage you to think how digital technologies may provide you with new ways of working and thinking about your research.

The workshops are hands-on seminars led by experts in which you will learn how to navigate and work creatively in a digital environment. They also offer you the opportunity to meet and discuss your research with your peers.
