The 2015 NISE Annual Gathering took place at Swansea University (Wales) on 1-3 September 2015. The main subject this time was Digital Infrastructures for Digital Humanities.
Singleton Abbey, Swansea University Campus
In Swansea, we presented the flagship project of NISE: DIANE (Digital Infrastructure for the Analysis of National movements in Europe), a digital environment for collecting data and sharing information and research on national movements across Europe. DIANE is a collaborative academic project that aims to be a central tool in comparative analysis of the emergence of national movements. Using Nodegoat technology developed for NISE by LAB 1100, the database will not only provide topical information, but also visualise connections between actors, movements, regions and events. In Swansea, members will learn to enter and connect data in training sessions.
The introduction of the NISE database is an opportunity to reflect on recent developments in digital humanities. We will learned about other digital infrastructures, such as EHRI, iMinds, VIAA, DARIAH and CENDARI.
In addition to this, the host Swansea University organised a discussion round on their plans regarding synergy actions between Humanities and Life Science.
Moreover, recent members and current or prospective NISE-collaboration projects were introduced. The General Assembly and the members held their annual meeting.
