At this, the tenth DRH conference, we will focus on critical evaluation of the use of digital resources in the arts and humanities. What has the impact really been? What kinds of methodologies are being used? What are the assumptions that underlie our work? How do we know that the work that we accomplish is truly new and innovative? How does technology
change the way that we work?
The Conference will also address some of the key emerging themes and strategic issues that engagement with ICT is bringing to scholarly research in the arts and humanities, with a particular focus on advanced research methods. What sort of research does ICT in the arts and humanities enable researchers to do that could not be done before at all? Does this enable 'old' research to be done in a significantly new
way? In what ways does the technology serve the scholarship? Similarly, what are the key aspects of virtual research environments ("cyberinfrastructure") which can facilitate collaborative research?
