Welcome | 29-30 September University College Cork

From the Forfas initiative and as part of the Strategy for Science Technology and Innovation this workshop will examine how digitality supports, augments, and acts
as a catalyst for the transformation of data into knowledge, which is at
the centre of humanist concerns. 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. It is connected with the Forfas research cluster on
Digital Cultures as well as with the new PhD program: Digital Arts and Humanities.
Over the two days there will be a combination of showcases, lectures
and discussion as part of the Research Month within the CACSSS.
On day 1( 29th Sept.), the “Gatherings” element of the Digital Cultures event
invites those already working on projects within the College with
collaboration from Engineering and Science, to showcase their research.

“Voyages” is the theme for day 2. Having gathered and taken stock of where we are,
“Voyages” projects a course into the terra incognita of Digital Culture research.
During the day we will look at emerging issues in digital cultures:-  the contribution of collaborative scholarly research to the knowledge society, the importance of open access to research publication for sharing research outputs, and the sustainabilty of digital projects.

Invited Speakers include:

Prof. Andrew Prescott

Dr. Graeme Earl

Dr. Julianne Nyhan

Dr. Alessio Assonotti

    Dealing with primary sources from WWI and investigating the notion of space and sense of belonging in border areas at the front line between Italy and Austro-Hungary, I plan to use “mapping” both as an analytical and descriptive tool and as a further visualitation strategy. The idea is to use Mapping in a new and more creative way. The point you were raising before about objective and subjective visualization and representation strategies is fundamental. It will in fact be a delicate issue to convince traditional scholars of the particular use I am adopting to study and describe sense of belonging in these areas through unconventional “mapping” (applied not to map conflicts but rather to map memory and recollection of some aspects related to it). This problem will be a main issue which needs to be addressed, as overcoming scepticism will enable me to refine the way in which I will apply this tool to my research work. While dealing with data in unconventional ways we do enconter a set of problems that need to be faced.

    I have interviewed a few parents to attempt to understand what their true
    objection is with their child playing video games.
    This means to sell your mods would be considered the
    same as pirating the game itself. Making your game play is the next phase you’ll be focusing on.
