DARIAH Virtual Annual Event 2020: Scholarly Primitives
Virtual | Papers and poster sessions: November 10-13, 2020
Workshops, Synergy sessions and Working Group meetings: October 7 – December 2 (weekly sessions)
Topic of this year’s event is Scholarly Primitives.
Twenty years after John Unsworth first formulated scholarly primitives as a set of recursive and interrelated functions that form the foundations of research activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras, the event will be an opportunity to revisit and freshly interrogate both the notion and the scope of scholarly primitives. To what extent does this particular set of scholarly primitives still correspond to our understanding of what humanities scholars do on a day-to-day basis? Has our understanding of research workflows changed over time significantly enough to require a new classification?
