Collaborative session notes
Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group
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 the digital humanities and social sciences. We seek to advance development of digital infrastructure for historical and ethnographic research through engagement with concrete scholarly practice and projects, and to advance conceptualization of the special characteristics and digital potential of humanities and qualitative social science data.

The main goal of the meeting is to establish a dialogue between researchers in Africa and those in other countries represented in RDA who work in the digital humanities and qualitative social sciences. We want to advance understanding of the specific accomplishments and needs of the digital humanities and qualitative social sciences in African nations, what other RDA researchers can learn from them, and how RDA can best support developments in these fields in Africa. We will also review IG accomplishments in 2017-18 through various RDA activities. We will also present new developments on the Platform for Experimental, Collaborative Ethnography (PECE), which serves as a test system for the DPHE Interest Group. We will also present a new initiative to build capacity in PECE to support a collaborative approach to adoption of RDA products. We will also report on progress made by the Metadata for the Empirical Humanities WG, which spun out of the DPHE Interest Group, and on our draft of a proposal to draw all these initiatives together -- in a project to build Research Infrastructure for Collaborative Hermeneutics (RICH).
