DPASSH 2017: Digital Preservation for Social Sciences and Humanities
The Sussex Humanities Lab (SHL) and the Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) are pleased to announce that the second ‘Digital Preservation for Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities’ conference (DPASSH 2017) will be held at the University of Sussex, Brighton, 14-15 June 2017.
DPASSH is a response to the problem of digital preservation within the arts and social sciences domains.
It seeks to address the complexities of long-term digital preservation of the full variety of research materials; and to encourage a long term dialogue around the issues created by such preservation.
As such, DPASSH 2017 will focus on both the technical, cultural, and societal challenges of digital preservation and the impact on research when (and if) everything is saved.
It asks: now that the human record is digital, what methods, approaches, tools, or skills will researchers, and society, require to understand these colossal datasets?
