The digital transformation is changing the infrastructures of universities and research facilities across the disciplinary spectrum. In recent years, also the research and teaching practices of the humanities have begun to utilize the potentials offered by digital tools and methods. The variety of possibilities in digital publication, research and analysis has culturally changed humanistic work to a degree that has not been discussed properly up to this point. Whilst the field of natural sciences has made use of digital methods to produce, maintain, use, share and manage research data for some time now, the humanities have focused very little on the topic of ‘research data’.
However, larger national and supra-national infrastructure projects such as “Nationale Forschungsdaten Infrastruktur” (NFDI or National Research Data Infrastructure) or “European Open Science Cloud” (EOSC) may serve as examples for the cultural change of academic work across the disciplines. However, these processes also bring up many questions. The network Digital Humanities invites all those interested to an expert talk to discuss current developments and other questions:
