IG Breakout Session: Digital Practices in History and Ethnography: Spring/Summer 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 a series of project-shares that began fall 2013 (supplemented by interviews with project leads) and continued through June 2015, a new series of "issues-shares" that have brought other interest groups into dialogue with this group, and progress thus far advancing the formation of an RDA working group. We will also report on the ongoing development of the Platform for Experimental and Collaborative Ethnography (PECE), and its implementation of the RDA Practical Policies WG Outcomes. Our WG development work has focused on metadata standards for researcher-created primary data within history and ethnography. 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.
