Mission

NeDiMAH (Network for Digital Methods in the Arts and Humanities) was launched in May 2011. The Network is carrying out a series of activities and networking events that will allow the examination of the practice of, and evidence for, digital research in the arts and humanities across Europe. It will build collaborations and networking between the community of European scholars active in this area, as well as those engaged with creating and curating scholarly and cultural heritage digital collections.

NeDiMAH activities and research will contribute to the classification and expression of digital arts and humanities via three key outputs:

  1. A map visualising the use of digital research across Europe;
  2. An ontology of digital research methods;
  3. A collaborative, interactive online forum for the European community of practitioners active in this area.

NeDiMAH will allow arts and humanities researchers to develop, refine and share research methods that allow them to create, and make best use of, digital methods, collections and infrastructure. NeDiMAH will work closely with the EC-funded DARIAH and CLARIN e-research infrastructure projects, as well as other national and international initiatives. All NeDiMAH activities are open to the European community of scholars.

The running period of the ESF NeDiMAH Research Networking Programme is for four years from May 2011 to April 2015.

A summary of the work of NeDiMAH can be found in the brochure for the final network event, 'Beyond the Digital Humanities' held at Senate House, University of London on 5 May 2015.
