Digital Cultures Showcase

22 Sep 2011

September is Research Showcase Month in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences at University College Cork.

On 29 & 30 September the College will host a two day workshop in digital cultures in association with the FORFAS research cluster “Digital Cultures” and the Research doctoral programme Digital Arts and Humanities. This workshop will examine how digitality supports, augments, and acts as a catalyst for transformations of data into knowledge, which is at the centre of humanities research. Other key issues include the knowledge society, the public domain, scholarly publication, visualisation, new modes of inquiry, and the infrastructural developments that emerge from new technologies.
