Digital humanities and open access tools

  1. 1. Digital humanities and open access tools Pierre Mounier (EHESS - OpenEdition) Universita’ degli studi di Torino – 23/10/2014
  2. 2. Are humanities and social sciences « late » on open access ?
  3. 3. NEW PRACTICES
  4. 4. « 9. We call for open access to data and metadata, which must be documented and interoperable, both technically and conceptually. 10. We support the dissemination, exchange and free modification of methods, code, formats and research findings. »
  5. 5. « New modes of research – connected, collaborative, horizontal, multimodal, multidisciplinary and multilingual – are being developed. Digital practitioners are engaged in new activities and work with new tools, building databases, developing software, analysing big datasets, defining conceptual models, collaborating through wikis and pads, communicating through websites, blogs and other social media. »
  6. 6. « In the field of Digital Humanities, experimental practices, reflexivity and the collaborative elaboration of standards are deeply interconnected. They are, therefore, an occasion to rethink and extend the Humanities through new materials, methods and hermeneutics. Furthermore, they represent an opportunity to redefine our relationship to society through open access to cultural heritage and the development of collaborative projects which also engage non-academic audiences. Thus, we see them as pivotal in the future of the Humanities. »
  7. 7. The digital revolution is first and foremost the revolution of access THE EARLY ADOPTERS : OPEN ACCESS JOURNALS
  8. 8. SURFING ON THE SOCIAL WAVE : BLOGS IN HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES
  9. 9. Torill Mortensen & Jill Walker, « Blogging thoughts. Personal publication as an online research tool », Researching ICTs in Context Jill Walker, « Blogging from Inside the Ivory Tower » Torill Mortensen, Thinking with my fingers
  10. 10. « Arguing is a basic ingredient of thinking: our way of structuring our thought would have been very different without the powerful tool of verbal exchange. So, let's acknowledge that the Internet allows us to think and write in a much more natural way than the one imposed by the written culture tradition: the dialogical dimension of our thinking is now enhanced by continuous, liquid exchanges with others. » G. Origgi
