The project Humanist Interaction under Scrutiny aims at analysing and validating the innovation potential of digital methods and tools in the Humanities.
The aim of the workshop is to (1) introduce its participants to a modular setting of digital methods and tools, (2) to let them put these applications to the test when addressing authentic research questions, and (3) to discuss and evaluate their user experience in combination with the wider potential of digital methods in the Humanities.
Researchers and developers within the Benelux have been building up expertise on geospatial technology within deep mapping and Time Machine projects. The Geohumanities rely on fast developing spatial technologies, semantic web technology and Linked open Data and at the same time explore collaborative en participatory research methods.
In this first CLARIAH-Benelux meeting we bring together developers, researchers and coordinators to exchange ideas and experiences of our geospatial projects. How can we collaborate in future development and research?
Sandra Camarda (Centre for Contemporary and Digital History, Luxembourg) and Martine Vermandere (Amsab-ISG, Ghent)
In this talk you will hear first-hand from Sandra Camarda, curator of the project Éischte Weltkrich: Remembering the Great War in Luxembourg (https://ww1.lu), on the process of developing a digital exhibition. The digital platform was developed by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH), with the objective of addressing a neglected and understudied period in the history of the Grand Duchy. It brings together the collections and expertise of all the major Luxembourgish museums, archives and cultural institutions, creating a long-term digital resource.
