Martin Holmes
Hi all,

I'm forwarding the following announcement on behalf of the Electronic
Textual Cultures Lab. Walter Scholger's talk will be taking place right
after the end of the formal part of the TEI conference, and will be in
the library, where many conference attendees will just have had a tour
of Special Collections, so the time and place is ideal for anyone coming
to the conference:

Please join us for an ETCL-sponsored talk by Walter Scholger, Assistant
Director of the Center for Information Modeling – Austrian Centre for
Digital Humanities at the University of Graz (Austria).

Details are as follows:

*When: *Wednesday November 15th, 2017, 4.00pm-4.30pm

**

*Where: *Digital Scholarship Commons (McPherson Library A308)

*Title*: Teaching Digital Humanities across Europe: Efforts at
harmonization of DH content and attribution by European research
Infrastructures and National DH organisations

*Abstract*: For the last decade, European Research Infrastructures like
DARIAH (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) and
CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Infrastructures), as well as
national and regional DH umbrella organizations like DHd (Digital
Humanities in German-speaking countries) have allocated considerable
effort to promoting Digital Humanities education and degrees across
Europe, developed tools, syllabi and whole curricula, and addressed
issues of attribution and canonical content across national borders. 
The online learning platform #DARIAHteach (http://dariah.eu/teach/) is
developing and providing open source, community-driven, high quality,
multilingual teaching materials for the digital arts and humanities and
exemplifies ongoing efforts at harmonization of DH content, but also
encourages cultural and linguistic diversity. While the platform
presents one prominent approach at creating a sample European reference
curriculum for Digital Humanities, similar considerations among special
interest groups from national DH organizations have fueled an ongoing
discussion on the very nature and requirements of teaching Digital
Humanities, revealing methodological and administrative challenges alike.

*Bio*: Walter Scholger studied History and Applied Cultural Sciences in
Graz and Maynooth. He has been the Assistant Director of the Center for
Information Modeling – Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities at the
University of Graz (Austria) since 2008, where he is primarily dealing
with administrative issues, project management and the coordination of
the Centre’s teaching activities. His research focus is on legal issues
(copyright, privacy, licensing) in the context of research, education
and the digitization of Cultural Heritage, and Open Access and Digital
Publication in general. He is involved in several international projects
(like “CO:OP: community as opportunity – the creative users' and
archives' network“, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the
European Union) focusing on legal aspects of academia and digitization,
and a member of working groups of DH umbrella organizations (like DHd)
dedicated to DH curricula development and issues of digital publication.
A veteran contributor to DARIAH-EU, he has been active in several
Working Groups, served as Co-Head of the “Training and Education”
Working Group from 2013 to 2017 and has just started co-chairing a new
Working Group on “Ethics and Legality in Digital Arts and Humanities”
with Koraljka Kuzman Šlogar.
