Roundtable Discussion, How Can We Move from Digital Resources to Digital Research?

, 5:00 pm to

Informal roundtable discussion, Heyne Haus, Papendiek 16, Seminarraum 1

Digital Humanities often claims that it allows humanists to answer old questions better and to ask and answer new questions that are impossible without digital tools.  And yet there is also an undercurrent of thought in digital humanities that we have produced few, if any, discipline-changing research results in any area.  The purpose of this roundtable discussion will be to discuss what we as humanists need to have and need to do in order to produce such results that are widely recognized as excellent and important.  Do we need more digital resources?  More infrastructure?  More tools?  More time?  Or something completely different?
