Plenary lecture 2

Developing and Sustaining Digital Humanities Partnerships

  • Paul Arthur (University of Western Sydney)

In this talk I refer to three ways in which digital humanities collaborations can be developed and sustained. The first is around building networks and associations of people. The second is the role that very large or long-term projects can play in building research communities. The third is how institutional frameworks within universities or research institutions can promote digital humanities to wider constituencies. I give the example of initiatives from Australasia including the Digital Humanities 2015 international conference, to be hosted by the University of Western Sydney.
