Venue
Online- via Zoom
Description



The Living with Machines project, based at The Alan Turing Institute, brings together historians, data scientists, curators and library professionals, computational linguists, and digital humanists, to examine the human impact of the coming of the machine age (c.1780-1920). This paper will discuss what it is like collaborating on such an unusually large and interdisciplinary project. It will discuss in particular the challenges of creating a shared vision and programme of research that respects the different research and work cultures of its members, and their expectations about how to work, what constitutes a meaningful outcome, and how that should be disseminated.

Speaker: Ruth Ahnert (QMUL)
