Making Data for the Future

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2021. 05:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Zoom and CESTA Seminar Room (Bldg 160, Floor 4)
Workshop: 
Critical Data Practices in Humanities Research
Meeting Description: 

As scholars, we are accustomed to thinking about the accountability of our scholarship to the future, but what about the future of our data? Will future scholars want access to the data we collect in the here and now, and if so, how and in what ways? Should we store only the data needed to reproduce our work, or do we go out of our way to provide data we collected and perhaps analyzed, but did not ultimately use? Professional guidelines tell us what to do with sensitive data, but what about material that feels like it shouldn’t be shared for other reasons, or simply doesn’t seem like it will be useful? And how does the provision of data intersect with the preservation of analytic tools and code? Finally, who and when are we storing our data for—ourselves, or others? Next year, or the next century?

This event will be held in a hybrid format. If you'll be joining us in person, we’ll be meeting from 5:00-7:30pm in the large seminar room in CESTA (Fourth Floor, Bldg 160). Food will be served at 5:00, and we'll start the discussion at 5:30: we'd encourage you to come early so we can maximize social distance while eating.

Pre-registration is required. >>
