The University of Victoria Libraries and Electronic Textual Cultures Lab are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the SSHRC-funded event: Research Data Management for Digitally-Curious Humanists
Join keynote speaker, Miriam Posner, and colleagues from across the Humanities during the middle-weekend of DHSI (https://dhsi.org/) to discuss and identify unique considerations for managing “humanities research data”. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with data management specialists, and to gain hands-on experience developing a data management plan.
Participate in a community-building forum, featuring presentations from leading researchers and round-table discussions.
· What is—and is not—appropriate to be considered as “humanities data”?
· Challenges of working with other researchers’ data vs. creating your own data
· Challenges with the sustainability of humanities data
· Library and other stakeholder roles in supporting humanities-based data management
· Taking the funding realities of humanities research into account with RDM
· Ethics protocols around using, storing, and publishing humanities data
Anxious about submitting a data management plan to the Tri-Agency?
Day 2 will take shape as a workshop, giving researchers the dedicated time and space to start writing a data management plan. Research data management specialists will be on site to facilitate discussions and problem-solving. (Participation in this workshop is limited)
