Just a reminder that Professor Harold Short will speaking in Melbourne this Friday, 27 April, 2012.
What are the particular challenges faced by arts and humanities scholars engaged in collaborative inter-disciplnary research? This is a significant question for the Digital Humanities, whose own disciplinary identity and character are so intrinsically multidisciplinary. Drawing on the twenty years’ experience in multidisciplinary research projects of the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London, Harold Short will present some reflections on the challenges faced in large collaborative projects and possible approaches to meeting those challenges. Particular emphasis will be given to the points of stress, the continuing areas of difficulty and the problems faced by collaborative research in the arts and humanities in a wider academic culture that is slow to change.
Harold Short is Professor of Humanities Computing at King’s College London, and a Visiting Professor at the University of Western Sydney in the School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics. At King’s, Professor Short founded and directed the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, now the Department of Digital Humanities, of which he was the Head until his retirement in 2010. He is a former Chair of both the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing, and is a general editor of the Ashgate series <Digital Research in the Arts and Humanities>. . Professor Short is in Melbourne with the assistance of VeRSI.
