To spread the word on emerging good practices around data management in Digital Humanities and to give visibility to young scholars’ critical reflections on how they adopt digital methods and tools to their research questions, DARIAH-EU offered two travel scholarships, open to early career researchers, to attend the Annual Event and showcase their topic as a poster presentation at the conference.
The two winning posts are:
- Tide Prediction Machines, Prosopography and Digital Humanities: what are they and how do they fit together? – Helen Mair Rawsthorne
- “Here be dragons”: Open Access to Research Data in the Humanities – Ulrike Wuttke
A few words about the authors:
