A Digital Age
The final keynote up is Paul Arthur and in his talk “Digital Knowledge in the Humanities and Social Sciences” he outlines the changes over the past two decades in: knowledge production, authoring, access to cultural heritage information, and the emergence of the digital humanities research community. He signals clearly in the abstract that accessing digital material and using computing is increasingly embedded in research practices, and more broadly, by noting that “The mass digitisation of primary sources is allowing worldwide access to collections that would otherwise have been hidden and inaccessible, offering further opportunities for research and engagement.” Arthur will reflect on the past five years of the Australasian Association for the Digital Humanities.
