Humanities in the era of digital revolution

A conference is happening at the University of South Australia focusing on how digital revolution is changing the traditional fields of research and practice in the humanities.

The 2018 Australasian Association for Digital Humanities Conference is drawing on the expertise of 180 researchers and practitioners from around the country and the globe.

According to a recent report, topics to be discussed will range from managing cultural museums and developing learning games, to connecting international scholars through advanced digital technologies.

Academics from the digital humanities and creative industries fields will speak side-by-side with national and international delegates from the Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAM) sector.

The conference will explore the uses of digital technologies in humanities research and how that is enhancing the ability to make connections between disciplines, sectors, countries and people.

The conference features five key presentations and an array of panels and workshops, which will all examine the relationship between teaching, research, creation, exhibition and distribution in the digital age.

Keynotes by Australian thought leaders will also be done on topics such as artificial intelligence (AI), social media, and social inclusion.

A free public lecture will be the highlight of the aforementioned conference. Called “Making Connections in a Digital World”, the presentation will be done by a UK-based specialist in digital transformation, leadership, skills and inclusion.

The lecture will be exploring the way that everyone will need to operate in a world that is being transformed by the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Relevant issues will also be included in the discussion. The issues are fake news, cybercrime, and the erosion of trust in the democratic process.

The topic of society’s adaptability to grow and change along with technology will also be talked about.

Other notable speakers will speak a session on Ignite South Australia’s preserve challenge to digitally showcase the South Australian Museum’s Aboriginal Collection while there will also be a session on Adding Structural Value to Cultural Value.

The Director of the Museum of Discovery (MOD) will present “Designing Research Experiences in the Technology Museum” during her keynote.

This presentation will be looking at the scope and the purpose of the new futuristic facility.
