Event Details

A One-Day Workshop

Cardiff University
Friday, 9 December 2016
10am–5pm

GW4 Archives logoKeynote Speaker: Peter Findlay, JISC Digital Portfolio Manager

Remediating the Archive is a GW4-funded network that seeks to build a research community based in the intersection of two key areas: special collections and the digital humanities. The ‘GW4 Treasures’ webpage (http://gw4.ac.uk/gw4-treasures) identifies numerous resources of significant cultural and academic value spanning a range of fields. The network approaches these holdings by way of the growing interdisciplinary work currently undertaken by digital humanists within the GW4. Remediating the Archive seeks to explore the impact of digitalisation on historic resources, as well as how we might use remediated archives to engage and empower the wider community beyond academia. 

The workshop aims to foster discussion among delegates by:

  • highlighting special collections and archival holdings across the GW4;
  • providing an overview of recent and ongoing digitisation projects based in the GW4;
  • exploring a range of interconnected opportunities and challenges through small-group discussion and plenary feedback;
  • showcasing the project website and resource/expert database.

Attendance is free for delegates from the GW4 consortium and external partners, but places are limited. We have also secured funding to cover reasonable travel costs incurred by delegates, as well as to provide a small number of travel bursaries for PhD researchers. The deadline for registration is midday, 5 December 2016..

We also invite proposals for short presentations (5–10 minutes) showcasing projects that are developing or making use of digital archives: the deadline for submissions is 2 December 2016. Please direct proposals (100 words) and enquiries to the Project Fellow, Michael Goodman (GoodmanMJ@cardiff.ac.uk). Doctoral researchers interested in attending should also contact the Project Fellow in the first instance.

Organisers: Anthony Mandal (Cardiff), James Freeman (Bristol), Gabriella Giannachi (Exeter), Jenny Kidd (Cardiff), Nina Parish (Bath), Gary Stringer (Exeter), Leah Tether (Bristol).

Cardiff Digital Cultures Network

The objective of this Network is to build significant capacity in Digital Humanities (DH) practice ad Digital Cultures research at Cardiff University. In addition to bringing together established DH practitioners, the Network will consolidate and extend the ongoing digital research into digital cultures at Cardiff University whilst supporting scholars interested in embedding DH in their own research and impact activities, to foster exciting and innovative collaborative projects. The Network will generate critical mass within the College through a programme of workshops and themed symposia, this website and a series of publications. It is financed by an Initiator Grant awarded by Cardiff University’s College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
