  • CARE Principles in DH

    Prof. Dan O'Donnell (University of Lethbridge) discusses the CARE principles, how they sit alongside the FAIR Principles, and how (digital) humanists can apply them in their research. He presents examples from his own research, particularly around studies of historical artefacts in small rural communities in Scotland.
  • Crowdsourcing Methods with Cultural Heritage

    In this lecture, Victoria Van Hyning explores the possibilities of crowdsourcing as "cultural heritage co-creation" or "commons-based peer production", expanding on the need for further comparative analysis of design and engagement strategies for crowdsourcing projects, their resulting data and possible applications for these data in Machine Learning training sets.
  • Citizen Science in the (Digital) Arts and Humanities

    This module looks at the variety of practices within ‘citizen science’, how you as a humanist might get started working with them, what issues you should be wary of along the way and how Research Infrastructures can potentially help you.
