Are you interested in disseminating your research online? Would you like to find out more (or are you already) constructing an online database, curating a digital collection, producing a website with user-generated content, or blogging about your research?

The Cambridge Digital Humanities Network is holding a workshop for postgraduates and early career researchers engaged in, or looking into, digital humanities, including the arts and social sciences.

Sessions include a panel of postgraduates and early-career researchers discussing how they present their data and/or results digitally, the pitfalls they came across and the solutions they devised, and a panel of leading academics and professionals from Cambridge and beyond will address the challenges facing the next generation of digital humanities scholars, including changes to publishing, peer-review and intellectual property rights. Information will also be available on support for digital humanities research within Cambridge in areas such as programming, hosting and grant applications.
