Data Infrastructures - the Big Picture: understanding national and international initiatives on Humanities data infrastructures
Digital research infrastructure for arts, humanities and cultural heritage research is evolving to support an extraordinary range of diverse content types, and a growing volume and complexity of new content which is “born digital”. Our tools and methods for working with this content are increasingly provided online and may be computationally intensive. How do we design (or co-design) an infrastructure which can support our many different communities of expertise in arts, humanities and cultural heritage, interpreting this ambition broadly to include skills development, tool development, training and support?
Our speakers have been involved in this infrastructure design process, and how it integrates with other research and innovation infrastructures. The discussion will address immediate requirements and plans, and also a longer term perspective based on new research areas, methods and types of content.

What you will need:

You will need to provide your own computer ideally with the Microsoft Teams desktop app installed, otherwise with a browser (must be Chrome or Edge). Guidance notes for using Teams will be emailed to you when you book. You will need a speaker and microphone for listening and speaking. You need to be online with a reliable internet connection.

Notice of recording:

Each live online training session will be recorded for accessibility and inclusivity reasons, and will be shared with all attendees after the session. It may also be put onto Canvas (Oxford University’s virtual learning environment) to enable other Oxford University members with SSO to view it.
