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
+ 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 training programmes.
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
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 RIoperators with a
special interest in creating the conditions where humanities scholars and
technical experts can fruitfully collaborate in answering humanities research
+ Format of the workshop
The half-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 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 data collection)
- They describe the research carried out jointly and its results
- They describe the technical aspects of the methods used and the results
- 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
- - Did they, for instance, make each other aware of blind spots they had?
- - 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 more efficient?
+ Submissions for the Teach Talks track
One single author and presenter is sufficient, but multi-author papers are of
course equally welcome.
+ Submission instructions
- Format: PDF. For format instructions, see:
- Size: Extended abstracts, size ca 2000-4000 words, covering research
questions and answers, technical aspects and collaboration experience for Twin
Talks, or relevant education experience for Teach Talks
- Publication: The workshop proceedings will be included in the proceedings of
the main DHN2020 conference
