Theme 1: Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities

 Led by Rob Procter and Stuart Dunn

Not least by virtue of their diversity of research orientations, methods and practices, the social science, arts and humanities present distinctive challenges for the exploitation of e-Infrastructure. In order to identify these challenges more clearly and determine how we might respond to them, we invite contributions from members of the social science, arts and humanities research communities with experience of, or interests in: 1) exploring, developing, and applying new, e-Infrastructure-enabled methods and practices to advance social science, arts and humanities research and practice; and 2) studying issues impacting on their wider take-up.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:

  • Advances in social sciences, arts and humanities research and practice enabled by e-Infrastructure
  • Innovations in research methods, practices and tools in social science, arts and humanities
  • Computational methods which encourage and foster interdisciplinarity across the social sciences, arts and humanities
  • Challenges and solutions for the development of advanced research data infrastructure in social science, arts and humanities
  • Case studies of barriers and enablers in the adoption of e-Infrastructure in social science, arts and humanities
