“Reflections and Fragments”: The Digital Archive in the Humanities

With the advent of digital media, the much-theorised archive is in the process of being rethought – and the way we understand artefacts, and the methods we use, are changing as a result. The #UEADH seminars aim to address the following questions – how does digitisation redefine the artefacts and methods that the humanities rely upon? How are cultural heritage organisations adapting in order to meet the demands of their increasingly digital collections? How does a shift towards born-digital works change the nature of the archive? And what are the implications of computational methods to our own work?
