Sustainable Data from Digital Fieldwork

Many academic disciplines depend on analysis of primary data captured during fieldwork. Increasingly, researchers today are using digital methods for the whole life cycle of their primary data, from capture to organisation, submission to a repository or archive, and later access and dissemination in publications, teaching resources and conference presentations. This conference and workshop will showcase a number of projects that have been developing innovative and sustainable ways of managing such data.

The conference will be in three parts: Academic papers on the theme “Fieldwork: from creation to archive and back”; demonstrations of tools and platforms for submitting and disseminating digital ethnographic material; and a hands-on workshop to introduce researchers to relevant recommended tools.
