For the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities (GhentCDH) and the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (Ghent University) we are looking for a full time all-round application developer, that will work closely together with the research unit Database, Document and Content Management and the Internet Technology and Data Science Lab (Faculty of Engineering). This developer will be responsible for : (1) The design, development and support of database systems for humanities researchers; (2)Coding of intuitive search interfaces; (3) Development of scalable modular solutions and (4) Linked data digital ecosystems
In the context of GhentCDH's pilot project TIC Collaborative, much data on persons, organisations and congresses involved in the field of social reform have been gathered. In a new CLARIAH Research Pilot project (2017-2018) 2TBI (2wards a Transnational Biographical Infrastructure), subsets of these TIC-data will be used to create a linked data environment with CLARIAH's Historical Person Entities Portal.
2TBI has three main goals:
On Friday 16 June 2017 (from 10:30 - 16:30), as part of the Doctoral School "Loading: Methods and approaches in Digital Humanities", a toolbox session on Network Analysis in Digital Humanities will take place. In this course we will discuss both theoretical, practical and technical aspects to using a network approach in DH research. You will learn what network analysis is and how you can possibly integrate into your research. In addition there will be a tutorial on the tool- UCINET, where you will learn some basics of visualizing and analysis of networks.
