The next Digital Humanities Workshop will be held in Delhi, 15 & 16 April 2019.
‘Multifaceted engagements with Cultural Heritage’
The aim of the workshop will be to introduce participants to theory and methods of creating and reusing cultural heritage artefacts at the intersection of digital and physical approaches. Digital material culture is playing an increasing role in preservation, curation and interpretation of heritage. Heritage and academic institutions are employing a range of digital methods, opening their collections to both research communities and the public and developing new ways of engaging with relevant datasets and collections. The processes of acquiring, retrieving and repurposing material culture are key to the successful and continued use of digitised cultural heritage, enabling traditional but also new interfaces of research and public engagement.
In the first part of the workshop, participants will learn theory and methods regarding the acquisition, capture and creation of digital data from physical objects, particularly historical text collections and material culture, through techniques including OCR and Photogrammetry. In the second part of the workshop, participants will engage with the theoretical background, best practices, and hands on experience on querying and visualising online cultural heritage through user interfaces.
Anyone interested in attending the workshop should sent a 2-page CV and a 300-word outline of their current activities in heritage practise or research by 28 February 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org
