Participating in “Next generation careers in and from Digital Humanities” [15 July 2021]

I am pleased to announce I will be a presenteer in The UK-Ireland Digital Humanities Network’s third event, which will be held on 15th July 2021, co-located with the Oxford Digital Humanities Summer School.

The event will explore career Digital Humanities and career opportunities. Many thanks to Professor Jane Winters and the organising team for the kind invitation.

Please register for the event here.

The UK-Ireland Digital Humanities Network is an AHRC/IRC-funded project to undertake research and consultation towards the implementation of a permanent Digital Humanities association for the UK and Ireland. A key focus for the network is the question of career development in Digital Humanities, and the options that are available to postgraduate students, early career researchers, and aspiring research software engineers (RSEs) in particular. An opening panel session will present the experiences of digital humanists who have gone on to a wide variety of careers, from academia to the creative industries, cultural heritage and the technology sector. This will be followed by an open discussion exploring the kinds of support and guidance that would make a difference to the career paths of Digital Humanities ECRs and RSEs, including industry placements, training, mentoring and advocacy. This conversation will feed in to a discussion paper on next-generation careers in and from Digital Humanities.
