Next generation careers in and from Digital Humanities
A key focus for the network is the question of career development in Digital Humanities, and the options that are available to postgraduate students, early career researchers, and aspiring research software engineers (RSEs) in particular.
An opening panel session will present the experiences of digital humanists who have gone on to a wide variety of careers, from academia to the creative industries, cultural heritage and the technology sector. This will be followed by an open discussion exploring the kinds of support and guidance that would make a difference to the career paths of Digital Humanities ECRs and RSEs, including industry placements, training, mentoring and advocacy. This conversation will feed in to a discussion paper on next-generation careers in and from Digital Humanities.
Our third discussion paper, based on the outcome of this workshop, is published here.
