This video recording is of 'Using Digital Archives for Social Sciences Research', the third and final webinar in a three-part public lecture series hosted by the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI), aimed at early career researchers. The webinar showcases the rich research resources contained in digital archival collections that can be used to advance social sciences research.
DARIAH is a pan-European infrastructure for arts and humanities scholars working with computational methods. It supports digital research as well as the teaching of digital research methods.
- In a keynote lecture at the DARIAH Annual Event 2020, John Unsworth revisited his seminal concept of scholarly primitives as the foundation of research activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras.
- In this screencast, Dr. Jonny Johnston and Kevin O'Connor from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) discuss and demonstrate the ‘Flipped Classroom’ approach to teaching and training, exploring how the use of asynchronous methods can open up more in-classroom discussion, and what technologies can best support this.
- Iason Jongepier from the University of Antwerp and Melvin Wevers from the University of Amsterdam explore the Time Machine Project and how local Time Machine instances can help us expand our understanding of the social, environmental and economic history of the city.
- In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ACDH-CH), Laurent Romary outlines the main issues related to open science in the current scholarly landscape while showing how the Text Encoding Initative (TEI) has been seminal in setting up an open agenda for managing, documenting or disseminating scholarly sources and methods.
- In this screencast, Laurent Romary discusses the concept of post-publication peer review (PPPR) as well as the risks, challenges and potential benefits of changing traditional approaches to research publication workflows.
- This video features a keynote speech given by Riccardo Pozzo, in his capacity as Chair of the DARIAH Scientific Board, during the final event for the DESIR project, held in Zagreb in November 2019. In it, he discusses co-creation and cultural innovation, and how research infrastructures play a key role in this.
- This tutorial explains the fundamentals of the DARIAH-DE Publikator, a tool which allows you to prepare, manage, and finally import your collections into the DARIAH-DE Repository using your favourite internet browser. The Repository provides the ability to store research data and enrich them with metadata. Through the use of persistent identifiers, a permanent machine-readable reference is ensured and findable via a generic search. The tutorial contains guides for users as well as technical documentation.
- Thesauri, taxonomies and other forms of controlled vocabularies represent a conceptual backbone of the research, playing an ever-increasing role in various aspects of the data management process. These resources are indispensable to determine common understanding allowing to systematically categorize and enrich research data in a consistent manner, as well as foster the data interoperability and integration among projects and web applications.
- XPath (XML Path Language) is a standard query language for selecting nodes from XML documents. In this step-by-step tutorial, you will learn how to write XPath expressions in order to navigate around our XML-encoded dictionaries and select only those bits of data that you are interested in.
- In this lecture, Sally Chambers, Digital Humanities Research Coordinator at the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities outlines how DARIAH as a Research Infrastructure works within Europe to connect with arts and humanities researchers. She elaborates on how such a European Research Infrastructure could start to work more widely internationally.
- In this lecture, Tony Hall examines design-based research (DBR) in educational contexts and settings. Drawing on key contemporary concepts and literature in educational design research, he focuses on how design-based research can be adapted and adopted, both to develop and deploy bespoke educational innovations and technologies.
