Digital Humanities Laboratory: Studying the Entanglement of Infrastructure and Technology in Knowledge Production.

Project description

Where digital technology meets scholarly work

Digital humanities is difficult to define. This relatively new field of study applies digital tools and methods to the humanities. It also examines technology by the use of interdisciplinary approaches. A digital humanities lab is a place where digital technology meets scholarly work. The EU-funded DHLab project will conduct an ethnographic study of digital humanists at work, combined with a critical analysis of local infrastructure. The aim of the research will be to develop a new theoretical framework for investigating a laboratory in digital humanities. By studying the links between the human organisation, technology, and infrastructure, the project will also build a new toolset for examining scholarly knowledge production. Two case studies will be conducted, the first at King’s Digital Lab and the second at Cambridge Digital Humanities Lab.
