Duration 0.5 days
Team Researcher Academy

This face to face course is run by the Researcher Academy 

Target audience: Research students and research staff in the Faculty of Arts.

Process: Lecture and practical workshop.


Digital Research in the Arts and Humanities is a series of lectures and workshops on digital research methodologies.

Researchers in most disciplines within the arts, humanities and social sciences encounter data of some form in the course of their research. Getting the most out of this data depends on choosing the right tools for the job and knowing how to use them. This workshop will provide participants with a practical introduction to interrogating and designing databases for research.

No technical skill required; all those with an interest are encouraged to attend!

Importance of booking commitment 

When booking on to a Researcher Academy short course you are entering into a commitment to attend. If you find that you are no longer available to attend you MUST cancel your place (on the system if more than three days before the course) or if at short notice by emailing will ensure that your place can be offered to another researcher on the waiting list.
