Doctoral student in Digitial Humanities wins EU funding for research trip
Trip funded as part of the 'Colour and Space in Cultural Heritage' research project
Paul O'Shea, a doctoral student in the School of English working under the supervision of Dr Orla Murphy and Dr Lee Jenkins, received the EU CoST STSM (short term scientific mission) research award as part of the 'Colour and Space in Cultural Heritage' CoST Research Action (see cosch.info ). He received the funding in order to travel to King's College London and and complete research on the semantic technologies contributing to the accurate and meaningful representation of heritage online.
Together with Seana Farrington, a DAH PhD candidate in History of Art, they were generously hosted by Dr Anna Bentkowska Kafel at KCL, who also arranged for them also to visit the University College London digitisation suite, and they met key staff and PhD students there. They visited the Petrie museum at UCL and saw their latest developments in augmented reality and 3D. Now they are at work using Protégé to create a group-sourced list of key terms in visualisation and documentation as a framework for knowledge representation in the proposed CoSCH model.
