Digital Humanities Pathways Forum

Due to the success of the Adelaide Digital Humanities Pathways Forum, we are rolling out the series to Melbourne and Brisbane in July!

The Digital Humanities Pathways series showcases the local and national digital projects, tools and services available to you in your state. Be inspired by our exemplars showcase and find out how digital technologies are being applied by humanities, arts and social science (HASS) researchers to accelerate and enable their research.

Come along and join the discussion around the current digital collaboration trends, the value of digital research and explore future possibilities for the Digital Humanities in Australia.


Date Friday, 14 July 2017
Time 9am – 3:45pm
Location Deakin Downtown, Level 12, Tower 2, 727 Collins Street, Melbourne, Victoria 3008

The Melbourne event will explore the theme of developing communities in the digital humanities space. Have your say on how the community can come together across a range of subjects including training, expert support mechanisms, technology platforms, data or collections infrastructure.

Date Friday, 21 July 2017
Time 9:30am – 4:pm
Location Ship Inn, Cnr Stanley & Sidon Streets, South Bank Campus

Join us at the Shipp Inn on Brisbane’s South Bank as Professor Suzanne Miller, Queensland’s Chief Scientist sets the scene for the future of Digital Humanities in Queensland. The Brisbane event will explore and demonstrate the Digital Humanities tools available to researchers now and feature a range of experts from Queensland’s leading GLAM institutions.

Date Friday, 4 August 2017
Time 9:30am – 4pm
Location McDonald Room, Menzies Library, 2 McDonald Place, Acton, ACT 2601

The theme for the Canberra event is two-fold: data centric (data arising from research, public administration or cultural production, and data curation practices that impacting scholarship) and infrastructure (where data is stored and how data is made accessible and used). Come, share ideas and engage with a range of speakers from the Australian National University, AARNet, eRSA and more!

Secure your spot today!

These Pathways forums are for anyone in Queensland, Victoria or the ACT working across the humanities, social sciences and GLAM sectors. If you are a researcher or supporting research in the humanities, arts and social sciences in Queensland, Victoria or the ACT this event is for you. Register today to secure your place at the forums.

For an example of what to expect at the Pathways series, read about the successful Adelaide event held in May earlier this year, including many of the discussions that were shared via social media. We hope to see you at your local Digital Humanities Pathways Forum!

  • “Having access to greater computer power helps us put in place a more realistic model in terms of the number of atoms you can have in the system and that improves the predictive power of the calculations.”
    Professor Andrea GersonMinerals and Materials Science & Technology
  • On using an eResearch program to complete 3D modelling of architectural records: “We were able to build an interactive, photo image model of the [historical South Australian property Joseph Elliot’s cottage] home – transforming simple sketches and floor plans into an interactive 3D experience... what we have now is a computerised model that allows us to experience the Elliott house beyond just words on paper”.
    Associate Professor Christine Garnaut
  • “It would be impossible to do the type of research that we’re doing without them – it is a major factor in achieving our research outcomes.”  
    Associate Professor Con DoolanSchool of Mechanical Engineering, University of Adelaide
  • “The supercomputing facilities at eResearch SA permit analysis of a host of interesting problems in evolutionary biology. It is the only computer system in SA that can perform certain complex calculations required to infer large evolutionary trees and associated patterns of evolution.”  
    Associate Professor Michael LeeSouth Australian Museum
  • "The eRSA support is very personal and solution-focused and not just a brushing off 'it's-your-fault-check-your-code' kind of support which one sometimes gets from University tech supports. I very much appreciate the help."  
    Sven SchellenbergSchool of Science, RMIT University
  • "eResearch capabilities ... ensure we can continue to use the latest methods available in our field. The hope is that through the use of these technologies, we will be able to achieve some research outcomes that may otherwise not have been possible.”  
    Professor Ina Bornkessel-SchlesewskyCognitive Neuroscience, UniSA
