Why do we need Digital Humanities?
w poniedziałek 15 grudnia 2014 roku
godz. 17.00 – 18.30, kampus UW, dawne Centrum Informatyki, sala 106
Sophie David: In the first part of my presentation, I will talk about my professional experience, where I will demonstrate that two aspects, both meeting people and also chance have been at least as important as training and scientific interest when one wants to find meaning in a career. In the second part, I will try to pinpoint the main dates and decisions which have structured French policies about digital infrastructures for Social and Human Sciences. Although the landscape is complex, major achievements have also been made. And in the third part, I will present the very beginning of a piece of my research, which focusses on the notion of research objects and tries to document what is new when Humanities go digital. I will use some linguistic properties of the “object” type in order to build an observatory where different projects from different disciplines (Linguistics, Archaeology, History, etc.) can be compared. I will show what properties are especially affected with digital use.
