Working with Complexity is the theme of the 2016 conference and the aim is to advance and critically assess the uses of digital technologies in humanities research and the communication of its outcomes.
The conference offers a supportive, interdisciplinary environment to explore the challenges and opportunities working with digital tools and techniques present.
AARNet has convened a distinguished panel of cultural sector luminaries who will discuss the challenges and transformative implications of digitising collections. The panel discussion will take place on Day 3, 23 June, 10.30am -12pm.
The panel discussion will broadly address the impacts of digitisation and examine how research infrastructure can be leveraged to build data bridges between galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAMs) and digital humanities researchers in universities. The aim is to find ways to build capacity for digital humanities research and sustain the value of GLAM data repositories into the future.
The panelists are: Janet Carding Director, Tasmanian Museum and Gallery; Richard Neville, Mitchell Librarian and Director, Education and Scholarship, State Library of New South Wales; Dr. Ely Wallis Manager, research and Online Collections, Museum Victoria; Dr. Marie Louise Ayres, Assistant Director-General, National Collections Access, National Library of Australia; and Ingrid Mason, eResearch Analyst, Intersect Australia.
