Short introduction describing the scope of the group and if any previous activities

The IG Digital Practices in History and Ethnography works to advance data standards, practices and infrastructure for historical and ethnographic research, contributing to broader efforts in what we call the "empirical digital humanities" and interpretive social sciences. We seek to advance development of digital infrastructure for historical and ethnographic research through engagement with concrete scholarly practice and projects, to advance conceptualization of the special characteristics and digital potential of humanities and qualitative social science data, and to develop cyberinfrastructure for transdisciplinary research spanning multiple quantitative and qualitative methods and fields.

Meeting objectives

We will review the IG's activities and milestones in 2017 through various RDA activities, including the approval of the case statement for the new Empirical Humanities Metadata WG. We will present a survey of recent developments in cyberinfrastructure for the archiving, analysis, and sharing of empirical humanities data, and projects (such as DataONE) in transdisciplinary research and data integration that works to include the different methods and data types of the humanities and interpretive social sciences. We will also present new developments the Platform for Experimental, Collaborative Ethnography (PECE), which serves as a test system for both the DPHE-IG and the Empirical Humanities Metadata WG. . We will also present updates on an initiative to build capacity in PECE to support a collaborative approach to adoption of RDA products.
