Workshop: Islamicate Digital Humanities Network (IDHN) Digitization Workshop, September 29, 2021

September 29, 2021

From the organizers:

This brief workshop will be conducted in two parts:

Introduction of field digitization: The first half will serve as an introduction to the field providing an outline of the basic equipment and techniques needed to put together a mobile digital suite. Walid Mourad, Field Director for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, of the Hill Museum and Manuscripts Library (HMML) will present an overview of the various technical and practical aspects of developing and using a mobile digital suite ranging from equipment choice, to object selection and preparation to the collection of metadata.

Ethical Questions and Local Contexts: The second half will be devoted to a conversation regarding the various challenges and issues those working in the field encounter when undertaking digital humanities projects outside the academic setting. Jody Butterworth and Scott Reese will discuss some of the issues they have encountered as practitioners in the field. These range from issues of ownership, concerns regarding the distinction between “public” and “private” and navigating both national and local bureaucracy.

The presenters will be joined by Oman Fathurahman (Center for the Study of Islam and Society, Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University, Jakarta) and Annabel Gallop(British Library).  Both have close ties with EAP and DREAMSEA and will be able to share their views and insight facing digital collections within a maritime South East Asian context.
