Critical Mass at Lunchtime: Chewing over Research Methods and Approaches in a Digital World
October 2, 2015 Leave a comment
Beginning on Monday October 5, we are launching a new discussion centered bi-weekly event we are calling “Critical Mass at Lunchtime” which will complement a series of lectures organised by the Institute of Data-Intensive Research (IDIR). The event is designed to create an informal space for community building and discussion where researchers at St Andrews can share and discuss their research ideas, teaching experiences, research questions, or frustrations around the creation, use and exploration of rich digital collections. We especially hope to foster conversations and collaboration among humanities scholars and between humanities scholars and colleagues in the sciences.
With a focus on methods and approaches, the discussion series will open with a very short and informal presentation of 15-20 minutes. While this may involve introducing a project in progress, a tool or technique useful, a methodological or other research challenge, these presentations are primarily to set the theme and spark questions for a more open discussion and exchange. Everyone is encouraged to bring their lunches.
Our first meeting is 1-2 in the Old Class Library, St John’s Lodge on October 5. Questions? Contact Uta Hinrichs (uh3) or Konrad Lawson (kml8)
