Special feature of this workshop: a mix of "Twin Talks" and "Teach Talks"
This workshop is special in that part of the submitted talks at
this workshop are submitted and presented by, a humanities
researcher and a digital expert (the Twin Talks). They report on
the research carried out together, both from their individual
perspective (either humanities research or technical), as well as
on their collaboration experience. Another part of the talks (the
Teach Talks) are talks by people with experience or interesting
ideas about how cross-discipline collaboration is or can be
addressed in curricula or other training activities.
Why two types of talks?
The main objective of the workshop is to get a better
understanding of the dynamics on the Digital Humanities work
floor where humanities scholars and digital experts meet and work
in tandem to solve humanities research questions. The best way to
do this seems to be to give both parties the opportunity to
present their achievements and to share their collaboration
experiences with the audience. The insights gained should help
those involved in the education of humanities scholars,
professionals and technical experts alike to develop better
As the problem of cross-discipline collaboration is not new we
also invite those who have relevant experience or interesting
ideas about how to address this in university or other curricula
to share their ideas with the audience.
Who should submit?
For the Twin Talks: Pairs of a humanities and a digital expert
who have done joint research and who want to report on their work
and on their collaboration experience.
For the Teach Talks: People (not necessarily in pairs) with
relevant experience in or ideas about how to address
cross-discipline collaboration in university or other curricula.
Why should you submit and/or attend?
Humanities research can only benefit maximally from new
developments in technology if content and digital experts team
up, very similar to the hard sciences where research is done in
teams working on a specific problem, where everybody brings in
his/her specific content and technical expertise and skills.
Co-design, co-development and co-creation are the rule rather
than the exception, but very little is known about how this
collaboration works in practice and how better training and
education of both humanities scholars and digital experts could
facilitate the way they collaborate. This is what this workshop
wants to address, based on real life collaboration examples. We
especially invite researchers, professionals, educators, and RI
operators with a special interest in creating the conditions
where humanities scholars and technical experts can fruitfully
collaborate in answering humanities research questions.
Format of the workshop
The full day workshop will start with an invited talk, followed
by 15-minute Twin Talks or Teach Talks, each followed by 5
minutes for questions and discussion. The Twin Talks should
contain the following three components: presentation of the
humanities problem and its solution, presentation of the
technical aspects of the research done, and a report on the
collaboration experience itself, including obstacles encountered
and recommendations how better training and education could help
to make collaboration more efficient and effective. After the
talks there will be a round table discussion with all
participants to formulate the lessons learned from the
presentations, and to identify further steps that could be taken.
Research and teaching topics
All humanities research topics in a very broad sense are welcome,
where we explicitly include social sciences and well as cultural
heritage studies. Research or teaching activities may be
completed or ongoing, as long as the presentation explicitly
addresses the way the humanities researcher and the digital
expert have collaborated or still collaborate.
What we expect from the submissions for the Twin Talks track
- They are authored and presented by one or more humanities
scholars and one or more digital experts
- They start from a humanities research question (i.e. not a
technical question, a presentation of a tool, a platform or a
- They describe the research carried out jointly and its results
- They describe the technical aspects of the methods used and the
- They analyse the way the scholar and the technician
collaborated, addressing issues such as (but not limited to):
+ What was easy and what was difficult " and why?
+ How did the researcher and technician change each other"s way
of looking at things?
+ Did they, for instance, make each other aware of blind spots
+ Did the combination of thinking from a DH research question
and thinking from a technical solution lead to new insights?
+ How could better training or education of scholars and
digital experts make collaboration easier, more effective and
Submissions for the Teach Talks track
One single author and presenter is sufficient, but multi-author
papers are of course equally welcome.
