the Humanities Hack will be taking place later this month
between the 21st and 22nd November. For those of you who
don't know this is a joint venture between the Open Knowledge Foundation, DARIAH, DM2E and
College London, Digital Humanities Department. The London
event is the first of a series of hackdays organised for coders and
researchers and intended to nurture research-driven experimentation
with existing openly licensed Humanities data.
The aim of the hackday is not to produce complete applications
but to experiment with methods and technologies to investigate
these data sets so that at the end we can have an understanding of
the types of novel techniques that are emerging. We are curating
at the moment for use at the hack, please have a
look at them and add any that you think would be good to look at
on the day.
It's set to be a fantastic day with people who have been
involved in some of the most exciting open source Digital
Humanities projects already signed-up such as TEXTUS
As spaces are filling up, I would urge anyone who still wants
to come to sign-up
the next few days. Any queries about the day itself, then let me
All the best and hope to see many of you there!
