Engaging with the Digital Humanities in Scotland

Our third and final project workshop was held on 12 September 2014 and focused on the topic ‘Research and/as Engagement.’ Considering the overlaps between digital research and public engagement, the conversation focused on successful cross-over research/engagement projects, and explored specific ways in which projects can be designed to maximise public engagement (videos of the presentations will be available shortly, to accompany the event report). Following the workshop we hosted the launch of a new initiative, a Digital Humanities Network for Scotland, which has in part grown out of the connections made at the workshops over the course of the year. Network membership is open to anyone with interests related to the digital Humanities, and as well as collecting information about relevant events across the country, it will seek to generate knowledge exchange, training and networking opportunities for its members. Please do visit the site to learn more: we hope lots of people will share information about their interests and projects on line, and join us at future events!_MG_4169
