UK-US Collaboration for Digital Scholarship in Cultural Institutions - Workshop EoI call
Workshop venue: Washington DC, USA
Workshop dates: 18-19 September 2019, 09:00 to 17:00
Expressions of interest deadline: 12 July 2019, 16:00
AHRC are pleased to announce a call for participants to attend a workshop on “UK-US Collaboration for Digital Scholarship in Cultural Institutions.” The workshop will take place in Washington DC, from 18-19 September and bring together leading experts from academia, museums and other cultural institutions from the UK and US in order to explore the role of digital scholarship in defining the future of cultural institutions.
The workshop will launch a new 5-year programme focused on UK-US collaboration for digital scholarship in cultural institutions for which the AHRC has received funding from the UKRI Fund for International Collaboration. It will play a key role in shaping the thematic priorities to be taken forward through the programme and embedded within future funding calls, and in building the transatlantic partnerships that will respond to the opportunities and challenges underpinning the programme.
The workshop will be delivered in partnership with EPSRC (the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) of the UK and the NEH (National Endowment for the Humanities); NSF (National Science Foundation); Smithsonian Institution and Library of Congress in the US.
Expressions of interest to participate in the workshop are invited from UK-based researchers and cultural institution stakeholders who meet AHRC’s standard eligibility requirements. Applicants should be able to demonstrate how their research interests support the vision and themes outlined in the guidance document (available below) and be able to articulate this in their expression of interest.
