Organised by Lisa Otty, Lecturer in English Literature and Digital Humanities at the
Centre for the History of the Book,
Literatures, Languages & Cultures department, University of Edinburgh.

"Focusing on the conceptualization of humanities data this event reflects on how the data needsof humanities researchers might map onto the digital ambitions and resources of the cultural institutions that hold and preserve Scotland’s cultural collections. What kinds of holdings, information and material might constitute ‘data’ for digital research, and how might the different ways in which we conceptualize data shape the kinds of research questions we can ask?"   (2nd May 2014 at Pollock Halls, Edinburgh).
