Next Annual Gathering in Swansea

Next Annual Gathering takes place at Swansea University (Wales) on 1-3 September 2015. The main subject this time is Digital Infrastructures for Digital Humanities.

Singleton Abbey, Swansea University Campus

In Swansea, we will present the flagship project of NISE: DIANE (Digital Infrastructure for the Analysis of National movements in Europe), a digital environment for collecting data and sharing information and research on national movements across Europe. DIANE is a collaborative academic project that aims to be a central tool in comparative analysis of the emergence of national movements. Using Nodegoat technology developed for NISE by LAB 1100, the database will not only provide topical information, but also visualise connections between actors, movements, regions and events. In Swansea, members will learn to enter and connect data in training sessions.

The NISE database is an opportunity to reflect on recent developments in digital humanities. We will learn more about other digital infrastructures, such as EHRI, iMinds, VIAA, DARIAH and CENDARI.

In addition to this, the host Swansea University organises a discussion round on their plans regarding synergy actions between Humanities and Life Science.

Moreover, recent members and current or prospective NISE-collaboration projects will be introduced. The General Assembly and the members will hold their annual meeting.
