Hi everyone, welcome back to our blog updates! My apologies for the break, the DARIAH-FI team has been busy preparing for the Christmas Workshop on December 19th – which has been a huge success in terms of signups! We appreciate your interest and support, and hopefully our team will deliver presentations of the highest quality. However, there is always time for a post or two on other projects that we have been involved in or participated in, and one of such things is DARIAH-Campus. a fantastic platform for everyone interested in digital humanities.
If you have ever wondered where to look for resources associated with DARIAH infrastructures or digital humanities as a whole, look no further than here. DARIAH-Campus, originally developed in the context of a project called DESIR, is a discovery framework and hosting platform for learning resources. It is, of course, closely associated with DARIAH and DARIAH affiliates, so resources that end up there are often tied with this European infrastructure – but they are not limited to it. The project encourages contributions from scholars and teaching professionals from all around the digital humanities world.
Here I would also like to thank everyone who is involved in DARIAH-Campus, the organizers, managers and team behind it in general, as it is truly a one of a kind learning platform for digital humanities and it provides an opportunity for everyone to learn from renowned people. It is incredibly vital for digital humanities’ knowledge to be disseminated and this is one of the best ways to do so, by providing those who are interested with a free to use platform with high quality resources. I am very honored and thankful to have been able to work with everyone involved in this project.
DARIAH-FI has been hard at work making several contributions to the DARIAH-Campus framework. Since the process takes a longer time to ensure everything is double-checked and ready to be published, not many teaching materials have made it through yet – however, feel free to get an idea of what we have been doing by reading and watching materials by professors from the University of Helsinki on word embeddings and digital heritage!
That would be all for this time. Don’t forget to check out our other happenings, such as the November text reuse workshop and December 19th grand happening, Christmas Workshop! Information has been shared on Twitter, as well as our event calendar. We hope to see you at our events and have a great time!
