Open Research Conversation: Reframing Research Data: Open Research Outputs in the Arts and Humanities 

17 May 2023

When applied to the Arts and Humanities, the conceptual framework around open research can present particular challenges and may require or invite some degree of reinterpretation. Within this context, we’ll explore what the notion of data might mean within Arts and Humanities subjects and how researchers might address discipline-specific issues around the sharing of outputs and materials. We’ll hear from Caroline Curwen from the Department of Music about her data on synaesthesia, Charles West from the Department of History on sharing Medieval history datasets, and Isabella Magni from the Digital Humanities Institute, who will discuss her involvement with the HathiTrust Research Center, one of the largest and most prestigious open Arts & Humanities repositories in the USA.
