Digital Practices in History and Ethnography: Spring 2015 Updates and Working Group Initiative This session will provide an overview of recent work by the Digital Practices in History and Ethnography Interest Group, describing the most recent project-shares in a series that began fall 2013 (supplemented by interviews with project leads), a new series of "issues-shares" that have brought other interest groups into dialogue with this group, and progress to date in spinning off an RDA working group. The WG development work has focused on metadata standards for researcher-created primary data within history and ethnography, with the goal of producing a complete set of policies, protocols, and technical standards for making new researcher-created qualitative data (especially interviews) repository-ready. The session will include time for introductions, to discuss how the work of this group compares to other groups, and the possible need for a new interest group with a broader focus on the digital humanities. All are welcome.
