Meeting title:

WG Session: Metadata for the Empirical Humanities

A short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group:

The WG Empirical Humanities Metadata is conducting research, developing a statement of best practices, and releasing an adoptable product centered on what needs to be in place (standards, protocols, policies, cultural expectations) to make ethnographic and historical data archivable, discoverable, and shareable. The empirical humanities include history, folklore, cultural anthropology, and other fields in which researchers actively generate new primary data of different types (documents, audiovisual recordings, material artefacts, etc.) that can be used for cultural analysis.
