This webinar is beneficial for researchers, post-graduate students or anyone who is interested in digital humanities and curious about how digital humanities might add to their research projects.
Beyond transforming the world from lifestyle to politics, digital tools are also transforming the way we do research. Digital humanities seek to advance the state of knowledge in the humanities by harnessing the power of digital to transform or disrupt existing patterns, ways of knowing and social structures.
Join us in this webinar to learn about emerging trends in scholarly communication and how authors can publish research on interactive platforms that combine text, multimedia and embedded analytics. This session aims to provide an understanding of the key concepts and methodologies of the digital humanities, such as databases, data-driven research and digital publishing and reveals the main challenges of creating and maintaining databases for the humanities. You will also be presented with an overview of three key methods for data-driven research in the humanities namely, textual analytics, network analysis and geospatial analysis.
