Harold Short ‘Collaborative Scholarship in the Digital Humanities’ Melbourne

Just a reminder that Professor Harold Short will speak in Melbourne this Friday, 27 April 2012.


What challenges do arts and humanities scholars face in collaborative interdisciplinary research? This question is significant for the Digital Humanities, whose disciplinary identity and character are intrinsically multidisciplinary.

Drawing on the twenty years of experience in multidisciplinary research projects of the Department of Digital Humanities at Kings College London, Harold Short will present some reflections on the challenges faced in large collaborative projects and possible approaches to meeting those challenges. Particular emphasis will be given to the points of stress, the continuing areas of difficulty and the problems faced by collaborative research in the arts and humanities in a broader academic culture that needs to be revised.


Harold Short is a Professor of Humanities Computing at Kings College London and a Visiting Professor at the University of Western Sydney in the School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics. At King’s, Professor Short founded and directed the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, now the Department of Digital Humanities, of which he was the Head until his retirement in 2010. He is a former Chair of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing. He is a general editor of the Ashgate Digital Research in the Arts and Humanities series. Professor Short is in Melbourne with the assistance of VeRSI.
