Mission Statement

The Digital Humanities Network, Scotland (DHNetS) brings together organisations, projects and people in Scotland who are using digital technologies to preserve, augment, and share resources, to explore topics in the humanities, and to disseminate research. The network will bring together experts in various related areas in the digital humanities to provide expertise and opportunities for collaboration for participants both within and outwith academic contexts, such as the galleries, libraries, archives and museum sector, as well as industry partners. It will also aim to provide a conducive environment for postgraduate students who wish to develop skills that will enable them to pursue and implement digital humanities research, thus laying the foundation for new and exciting work to be done in the area. The DHNetS website will host a directory of digital humanities research being carried out in Scotland, share information about workshops and other learning opportunities, and provide a space for discussion and announcements.

Steering Group:

Uta Hinrichs (University of St. Andrews), Adam Wyner (University of Aberdeen), Brian Aitken (University of Glasgow), Beatrice Alex, (University of Edinburgh), Anouk Lang (University of Edinburgh) Lisa Otty (EDINA), Jonathan Hope (University of Strathclyde), Dorothy Butchard (Early Career Representative: University of Edinburgh)

Using this website

The Digital Humanities Network Scotland website provides a platform and information hub for those interested in digital research.  The website can be used to identify potential contacts and collaborators, to showcase projects, and to advertise events (please see guidelines below).  The network also hosts occasional meet-ups and training events, and supports its members in developing new digital research projects. 

Guidelines for advertising events:  Details can only be submitted by registered members of the network. Events should be relevant to the interests of the network: they should focus on new media, digital research methodologies, research projects, and/or technical training. Events may be in Scotland or beyond.
