Throughout October we have continued to raise awareness of the Cultures and Communities project, building on the relationships enabled by the project, as we progress towards the next stage of collaborative research infrastructure support for the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) community in Australia.
- We have continued planning for our Sydney Digital Humanities Pathways event, which will take place at Macquarie University Library on Friday 10 November. We have a great program lined up, with involvement from various Sydney universities, and representatives of the local GLAM sector coming on board as well. Register here to make sure you secure your place.
- We’re also excited to announce the next Digital Humanities Pathways event will take place in Hobart on Friday 1 December! We’re presently working on the program for that day, and your input is welcome. Register your interest in attending or speaking, or suggest speakers here.
- Cultures and Communities team members participated in the recent eResearch Australasia conference in Brisbane in a number of ways. Prosecution Project Researcher Mark Finnane and eRSA Research Engagement Specialist Alexis Tindall presented on how the C&C API is enabling better data discovery and sharing between research projects and source archives. C&C Project Manager, Sarah Nisbet, and project manager for the Biodiversity and Climate Change Virtual Laboratory and EcoCloud national eResearch programs, Hamish Holewa, shared their experience in managing successful distributed collaborative teams. Most significantly, Sarah chaired the Current and Future Directions for Digital Infrastructure in the Humanities and Social Sciences in Australia Birds of a Feather session, which underpinned a strong stream of humanities and social sciences content in this conference. All sessions were recorded and will shortly be available through the eResearch Australasia website.
Throughout this, we continue to build partnerships in this growing community as we plan for the next stage of our project. Be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming Cultures and Communities newsletters for the latest updates.
