Suggest sessions and ways to organize such a meeting. 

The meeting could be organized around cross-cutting themes across different domains of the humanites, especially those calling for interaction with the various kinds of technical experts involved in RDA. 

One (extended session) could present humanities/ethnographic studies of data practices.  See our notes toward a collaborative project on this here.
