We are delighted to announce that we have some funding available to support the travel costs of early career professionals and researchers who would like to attend the project’s Research and/as Engagement workshop in September.
As one of the overall aims of the project is to foster collaboration across the educational and cultural sectors, these bursaries are not restricted by sector/affiliation. However, we would like to direct funding to those coming from areas of the country that are remote from Edinburgh, to those early in their career, or to those who would otherwise find travel costs prohibitive. To request support please contact Dr Tara Thomson at Tara.Thomson@ed.ac.uk.
The workshop aims to consider the overlaps between digital research and public engagement: to what extent do digital humanities projects, often collaborative processes conducted on-line and in public, lend themselves to innovative forms of audience engagement? And what are the implications of this overlap for researchers and collections? It features invited speakers who have led successful cross-over research/engagement projects and explore specific ways in which projects can be designed to maximise and capitalise on public engagement. Full details are available on this site, along with details of previous events and participating institutions are also hosted there.
