“DH goes Viral” Digital Workshop, 26.04.2021


Almost one year since the “DH in the Time of Virus” Twitter conference, which took DH Twitter by storm right at the beginning of the pandemic and was voted 1st Runner Up in the “Best DH Response to COVID-19” at the DH Awards, the Digital Curation Unit – IMSI, ATHENA R.C. is organizing a follow-up event, this time a digital workshop in which we aim to reunite the Twitter Conference participants alongside further DH researchers.

The aims of the workshop will be to:

  • Revisit, reappraise and reevaluate considerations, remarks, and research outputs presented in April 2020: What steps have we taken?
  • Benchmark the impact of COVID-19 in DH communities across the world
  • Reinforce bonding and explore new COVID-19-related research ideas
  • Share perspective foresight for the still uncertain months to come.

Related topics are also welcome.

The outcome of this workshop will be a short digital publication (openly available following DARIAH’s Open Access Guidelines) as well as a printed publication monitoring the effects of the pandemic on e-Education, e-Research and digital tools, methods and platforms, the developments the pandemic has expedited and the delays it may have caused in DH research and the distance covered and toils endured by DH researchers and practitioners to keep track of their work.

The printed publication will be disseminated at the DARIAH Annual Event 2022 in Athens, Greece. For the online publication we shall be using Zenodo and/or Open Archive HAL.

The workshop and publications are kindly funded through the DARIAH Theme funding scheme.
