École thématique; The composition of corpus, analysis and preservation of Web archive is crucial for Social Sciences and Humanities. As the World Wide Web reaches its 30’s in 2019, it has become a prominent source for researchers. A new kind of archive arises with its very own issues and challenges. This Workshop aim at presenting what is the state of Web archives and how Digital Humanists could use it for research purposes. It will include the following modules:– Introduction to Web Archiving– The Wayback Machine: How to Explore It, How to Use It?– Available Tools for Web Archiving and the Different Formats– Building a Web Archive Corpus for Research with Archive-it
3rd cycle; This webinar is dedicated to the phase of the research life cycle “Develop Research Questions”. It will dive into details of the topic of developing research questions with RIs, especially on finding, working with and contributing data to RI collections, using Virtual Research Environments, and tools. It will show successful examples of how Digital Humanities and eHeritage approaches, in cooperation with relevant Research Infrastructures, lead to innovative research methods and questions. It will also exemplify how to successfully involve the broader public in Digital Humanities and eHeritage research (citizen science). This webinar will cross-link to materials developed within PARTHENOS and by the PARTHENOS Cluster Partners and features “teasers” from several research infrastructures as well as an introduction of the Cultural Heritage Data Reuse Charter.
3rd cycle; This webinar is dedicated to the phases of the research lifecycle “Carry out Research” & “Analyse Data” in the context of a research infrastructure. Carrying out research and analysis in the context of a research infrastructure requires a change in approach to research, where the harmonization of data and the ability to access and deploy interoperable services is crucial. This webinar will give an overview of the necessary elements required to set up a sustainable research infrastructure with regards to the management of data and services. It will clarify the technical and epistemical challenges faced in attempting to establish a successful and sustainable research infrastructure. In so doing, it will outline aspects of data sharing through research infrastructures, such as processing and contributing data, using and applying ontologies, questions of interoperability, relevant tools and Virtual Research Environments (VREs). This webinar will cross-link to materials developed within PARTHENOS and by the PARTHENOS Cluster Partners and will, by way of example, refer to efforts undertaken to establish different VREs for the PARTHENOS project.
3rd cycle; This webinar will provide a theoretical basis for a general understanding of the digital and infrastructural turn in the (Digital) Humanities and Cultural Heritage along with theoretical and critical reflections around the topic: Which opportunities and challenges do Cultural Heritage and Digital Humanities Research Infrastructures offer for research(ers)? The webinar will further explain how different stakeholders can engage with Research Infrastructures (community engagement and user engagement). Examples are research communities and networks, transnational digital collections, thematic working groups, overarching organisations (ERIC platforms, the Research Data Alliance), conferences and workshops, Transnational Access, Research Infrastructures in Academic Curricula. As a general introductory webinar it will also touch on some aspects of the other webinars in the PARTHENOS Webinar Series including a short introduction of the research lifecycle. This webinar will feature “teasers” from several Research Infrastructures, such as short introduction videos or webcontent).
3rd cycle; This webinar is dedicated to the phase of the research life cycle “Plan Research Project”. It first introduces the participants to an understanding of the advantages and practicalities of research collaboration in and with Research infrastructures. It then dives into details of project planning, touches upon the basics of the FAIR principles, and will focus especially on the importance of using standards in Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage research and how to identify relevant standards for the participants’ own research. This webinar will give an introduction to the Standards Survival Kit that is developed within PARTHENOS. It will also cross-link to other materials developed within PARTHENOS and by the PARTHENOS Cluster Partners.
3rd cycle; This webinar is dedicated to the phase of the Research Lifecycle “Publish Results”. It covers several aspects related to successfully drafting and implementing a publication and dissemination strategy taking into account specific Research Infrastructural aspects. It will first cover the basics of impact measurement and research metrics, both from the individual researcher’s perspective as well as the Research Infrastructure perspective since these are strongly interlinked. It will then go into details such as repositories, new publication types and new forms of dissemination (such as blogs or wikis) and touch upon challenges such as data and software citation. It will specifically introduce the Impactomatrix as a tool for drafting an impact-orientated publication and dissemination strategy.This webinar will cross-link to materials developed within PARTHENOS and by the PARTHENOS Cluster Partners.
Doctoral; In the past few years the Digital Humanities have developed within two main institutional contexts: within dedicated research centers and within more traditional discipline-based faculties. While the DHers in the former case are in danger of closing themselves within ivory towers of a think-alike community, in the latter case the “lone wolves” are most likely to have suffered isolation and lack of real confrontations with their peers. However both these experiences are now converging and, slowly but steadily, DH has raised its profile and its impact within the Humanities, with external and internal pressure on other fields now mounting, as demonstrated by the intensification of newspapers articles, manifestos and positions being advertised. We are now at a turning point: will the experience of DH feed back and enrich disciplines such as English, Spanish, History, and so on, or will brand new disciplines stem from it, as has happened for Computational Linguistics as a clearly separated entity with respect to Linguistics?
