DARIAH ANNUAL EVENT 2023 Cultural Heritage Data as Humanities Research Data?

June 6 - 9 2023: Budapest, Hungary

DARIAH is a European Research Infrastructure for the Humanities and Arts. Its mission is to empower scholarly communities with digital methods to create, connect and share knowledge about culture and society.

Collections in libraries, archives and museums have been at the heart of humanities research for centuries. However, with the current focus on data-driven research, data management plans and the research data lifecycle, in what ways do we need to think differently about cultural heritage collections as data?

Inspired by the proclamation “cultural heritage data is humanities research data”, this year’s DARIAH Annual Event will seek to explore what this means in practice. What does it mean for cultural heritage institutions to provide access to their ‘collections as data’? Do we need to think of different workflows for digitised and born-digital datasets? Can we think of a humanities research data continuum? These are only some of the questions we aim to explore at the 2023 DARIAH Annual Event. 

Please note that while some aspects of the event will be live-streamed, the 2023 DARIAH Annual Event is planned as an in-person event. There are no conference fees for participants, this event is open to all.

DARIAH is a European Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities. Its mission is to empower scholarly communities with digital methods to create, connect and share knowledge about culture and society.

The DARIAH Annual Event offers the DARIAH community and beyond the possibility to present results and new ideas; to meet and network.

I have not missed a DARIAH Annual Event since 2016. It is one of the “must-do” events in my schedule each year, because I wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity for exchange with like-minded colleagues – many of whom have become dear friends through many years of working together in DARIAH-EU – and the development of new ideas and collaborations. The Annual Event is a great showcase of one of the most important aspects and strengths of DARIAH-EU: It is, among and perhaps above all else, an infrastructure of –people- who are burning for Digital Humanities.

In the past, numismatists have often worked in an isolated silo, and enjoyed too little contact with other disciplines. This has changed with digitisation, and Digital Numismatics is now a leader in Linked Open Data and Semantic Web applications. DARIAH-EU, and in particular the annual events, serve as an ideal forum for us to link up with colleagues outside our discipline and forge new connections, enabling us to learn about applications and competencies that we would otherwise not have learned about.
