Presentation of the edited volume ‘Cultural Heritage Infrastructures in Digital Humanities

09-11-2017

The Digital Curation Unit/ Information Managment Systems Institute/ Athena Research and Innovation Center invites you in the open presentation of the edited volume 'Cultural Heritage Infrastructures in Digital Humanities' by Routledge  on Thursday, November 2017, 18.00- 20.00 at the buildings of the Archaeological Society of Greece. The event will include talks by important academics in the field and open discussion on the subject of cultural heritage infrastructures in digital humanities. 

What are the leading tools and archives in digital cultural heritage? How can they be integrated into research infrastructures to better serve their intended audiences? In this book, authors from a wide range of countries, representing some of the best research projects in digital humanities related to cultural heritage, discuss their latest findings, both in terms of new tools and archives, and how they are used (or not used) by both specialists and by the general public.
