Data in the Humanities Panel
Thursday, April 20
8:45 – 9:45 am
Description: Digital humanities data poses unique challenges and opportunities for data management professionals. Much of these data are trapped in formats that are difficult to mine, analyse, and disseminate, but hold immense potential for research across disciplinary boundaries. In this panel we will consider the breadth of types of data that are encountered by researchers and data management professionals in the humanities and how lessons learned in one field can be applied to others. Panelists will include librarians, humanities scholars, and data specialists covering topics like challenges related to permission to use data, finding unique ways to visualize data, and how to address challenges related to licensing.
Panel Lead: Kristin Lee, Tufts University
- Helene Williams, Senior Lecturer, University of Washington
- Joel Dunham, Post-doctoral Researcher, Concordia University
- Miriam Posner, Digital Humanities Program Coordinator, UCLA
