Report: Developing the digital humanities at the Open University: progress report

In June 2011 the Open University Senate recognized Digital Humanities as one of two new University Thematic Research Networks, and it was launched at a colloquium on 8 July. During the coming months we plan to develop collaborative activity across the University, with a particular emphases on exploring how the use of digital technologies is shaping the research process, and on their potentialities for enhancing our mission of ‘openness’ in research.  Appointment of a Research Associate who will play a leading role in taking this process forward is currently underway. In the meantime for details of the ongoing programme of workshops and seminars, please see the Events page.
