‘Channels of Digital Scholarship’ Seminar
Institutions & Networks: The cultural infrastructures of digital scholarship
Seminar Room, Maison Française d’Oxford & Zoom
Convenors: Goran Gaber, Andrew Cusworth
In this unique two-hour seminar hosted by Maison Française d’Oxford (MFO) and Digital Scholarship @ Oxford (DiSc), participants from leading research institutions in France and the UK will discuss the challenges and opportunities for national institutions engaged in digital research, including
• creating and sustaining long-term infrastructures in a research environment that
favours short-term funding;
• enabling collaboration and exchange;
• and balancing public and commercial interests in their work.
Introduced by the directors of MFO and DiSc (Professors Pascal Marty and Howard Hotson), this seminar will draw together speakers from Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Huma-Num, and the Alan Turing Institute. Gathering in the seminar room at MFO, participants and attendees will have an opportunity to hear four papers on these topics, take part in formal and informal discussion and exchange, and enjoy a
little cheese, wine (or alcohol-free alternative), and conversation.
