By arranging activities and enabling meetings between
researchers, NeDiMAH is making it possible to examine what European
digital research in the field of humanities is like in practice.
The network is aiming to create partnerships between researchers in
Europe who are studying or using digital technology and humanities,
as well as the people who are working to preserve valuable cultural
heritage in digital collections.
The network has created three central tools to facilitate
interaction between researchers interested in digital technology
and humanities in Europe:
- A map visualising research in the field of digital technology
and humanities in Europe
- A survey of research methods in the field
- An interactive online forum for researchers in this field
NeDiMAH is making it possible for researchers in the field of
humanities to develop, refine and share digital methods for
creating collections and other research infrastructure.
HUMlab is particularly involved in the team behind NeDiMAH's
subtheme "Information Visualisation", where we are working together
with researchers from various universities all over Europe to
develop tools for visualising both research in the field and the
results of that research. For example, HUMlab has helped to develop
various interactive mapping tools that are helping researchers to
manage and interpret their data.
NeDiMAH will be financed by the EU between May 2011 and April
HUMlab's contact is Fredrik Palm.
