DPASSH (Digital Preservation for the Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities) is a response to the problem of digital preservation within the arts, humanities, social sciences, and cultural heritage domains. It seeks to address the complexities of long-term digital preservation of social and cultural records and academic research data, and to encourage a sustained dialogue around supporting preservation activities.
We invite proposals for 20-minute papers (in person) on topics relating to cultural memory collections as data, including but not limited to:
- Challenges and opportunities in providing cultural collections as data;
- Providing access and licences for the reuse of collections stewarded by memory institutions;
- Standards for structuring and citing cultural collections as data;
- New modes of representing cultural objects, including 3D images;
- Examples of computational use of collections, using reproducible tools such as Jupyter Notebooks;
- Collaboration between (digital) humanities and social sciences researchers, computer and data scientists and collections professionals;
- Preserving and sustaining data about collections;
- Role of cultural heritage data in the Open Science data ecosystem;
- … or other related topics.
We also welcome proposals for workshops, lightning talks and posters covering the same topic areas above.
