Data-Asset-Method Sandpit Event

Data – Asset – Method Network: Follow-on projects announced

The AHRC-funded international Digital Transformations network Data – Asset – Method. Harnessing the Infinite Archive, led by Dr Katharina Lorenz of the Department of Classics, drew to a close this month with a sandpit event at Priest House in Castle Donnington.

The event brought together academics from UK and US institutions, as well as cultural institutions and industry partners in the UK. Participants were able to pitch for prize money for further research projects, funded by the Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute. The judges [Professor Andrew Prescott (Director, Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London and AHRC Theme Leadership Fellow Digital Transformations) and Caroline Williams (Director of Libraries, Research and Learning Resources, UoN)] awarded funding to three projects:

  • Datatales (a collaboration of Horizon, UoN Humanities, Loughborough University, British Library, Artefactor)
  • PEP (a collaboration of Horizon, UoN Arts, University of North Carolina)
  • Corpus Protocols (a collaboration of UoN Arts / Library Services and British Library)

The projects will start later this summer and initial results are expected at the end of 2013.

See more information on the network, including slides, videos and photos of all events.
