Virtual Research Infrastructures in the (Digital) Humanities
The first panel discussion which is open to the public will be devoted to the question: “Which directions have to be taken if Virtual Research Infrastructures are to serve the (Digital) Humanities”? The reason why this question is being asked is that in discussions around Virtual Research Infrastructures, when it comes to the Humanities, “for the Humanities” in the sense of “Computer Science develops virtual research infrastructures for the Humanities” would seem to be more central than “Humanities” in the sense of “Virtual Humanities Research Infrastructures” and thus the collaboration on an equal level of the Humanities and Computer Science. The panel discussion aims at the initiation of a reflection on these two different perspectives and their implications.
