VOX: Voices Of eXperience

What does it happen when Humanists & Technologists work together? What are the challenges and opportunities of cross-field and interdisciplinary collaborations? What is your personal experience?

This Talk session proposes to listen to the voices of Humanists and Technologists involved in cross-field and interdisciplinary collaborations in order to understand what are the main constraints and the main benefits of those collaborations. What works? What doesn’t? Can we identify common problems and strategies to overcome the obstacles?

This proposal arises from the Digital Humanities & Arts Praxis project at the University of Nottingham. DHA Praxis aims to create a space for conversation around interdisciplinarity and to produce recommendations to facilitate the convergence of different fields and disciplines into shared practices.

So, THATCamp at the British Library seems the perfect event to discuss and exchange (Voices Of) experiences and suggestions.
