The Mapping the Arts & Humanities project is mapping the UK’s extensive arts and humanities research infrastructure for the first time. The project, which was commissioned by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Research England, will develop an intuitive, interactive online map that will allow users to find and connect with research activity more easily, and boost visibility for research centres and networks across the country. The map is set to launch in November 2023.

At this event, you will have the chance to find out about the project, see how the online map will work, and learn more about how the map can benefit you as an individual researcher, policymaker, practitioner or funder. If you are a member of a research centre, group or other infrastructure, you will also learn how you can keep information about your infrastructure up to date on the map.

Dr Cathy Kerfoot, Associate Director for Major Programmes and Cross Council Partnership at the Arts & Humanities Research Council, will introduce the event and explain how the map contributes to the AHRC’s broader plans to support research infrastructure in the UK. 

Professor Jo Fox, Dean of the School of Advanced Study, and Professor Jane Winters, Director of the Digital Humanities Research Hub, will explain the vision behind the project and how the data will be managed and presented. 

This will be followed by a Q&A, where you can ask any questions you may have about the map and how you can get involved.
