STORYTELLING

The power of storytelling as a sense-making and knowledge-creation strategy is deeply embedded in human cultures, reaching back as far as our written records, and looking as far forward as our technological imaginations. How we gather, share and use our stories says much about who we are, how we entertain and educate, how we build identities and understand the world beyond our vision, how we relate to our past and to our future.  

For this first hybrid meeting of the DARIAH community, we will highlight the power of storytelling in the arts and humanities.  By looking at our research practices and our research infrastructures through the lens of storytelling, we hope to build conceptual bridges between the arts, technology, humanities, and beyond. Registration is now open.

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.

DARIAH

Dariah team

The Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities (DARIAH) aims to enhance and support digitally-enabled research and teaching across the arts and humanities. DARIAH is a network of people, expertise, information, knowledge, content, methods, tools and technologies from its member countries.  

It develops, maintains and operates an infrastructure in support of ICT-based research practices and sustains researchers in using them to build, analyse and interpret digital resources. By working with communities of practice, DARIAH brings together individual state-of-the-art digital arts and humanities activities and scales their results to a European level. It preserves, provides access to and disseminates research that stems from these collaborations and ensures that best practices, methodological and technical standards are followed.

DARIAH was established as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) in August 2014. Currently, DARIAH has 20 Members, 1 Observer and several Cooperating Partners in six non-member countries.
