- Publishing open humanities data: The experience of the Journal of Open Humanities (Barbara McGillivray)Wed, Apr 13https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83626988971Apr 13, 2022, 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. MDThttps://us06web.zoom.us/j/83626988971The first talk in the Humanities Data Inquiry Lecture Series. Barbara McGillivray is lecturer in digital humanities and cultural computation at King’s College London and Turing fellow at The Alan Turing Institute, where she runs the Humanities and Data Science special interest group.
The lab was founded by Dan O'Donnell in 2019 and has been housing active projects since then. In 2021, as part of a series of grants, awarded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Canterbury Tales Project relocated to the lab.

THE CANTERBURY TALES PROJECT
The Canterbury Tales Project aims to transcribe, collate, and edit the 88 fifteen-century witnesses of the text. We have pioneered the use of digital tools for the analysis and presentation of textual data.
HUMANITIES DATA INQUIRY
The overall goal of this partnership is to prototype and mobilize a new approach to the development and dissemination of primary source HCH research data and analyses on FAIR (Findable, Achievable,
Interoperable, and Reusable) principles. This builds on workflow, infrastructure, and tools originally developed to support big data projects, particularly in STEM, but shows how they can be adapted to
support the different interests, methods, and scale of typically much smaller HCH research projects.
THE VISIONARY CROSS
The Visionary Cross research group is working on an innovative system that will allow researchers to interface directly with external online databases while navigating within a 3-D game environment. Students and researchers examining the relics within the virtual game environment will be able to directly access specific online database information – and even add to that database – simply by clicking on the relevant location on the 3-D virtual object.
