About the module

This module is about collaboration and cooperation between humanists and computer scientist and about collaboration between Research Infrastructures and cultural heritage institutions.

Collaboration and cooperation are at the heart of the Digital Humanities. To understand the underlying principles of collaboration will serve humanists, cultural heritage practitioners, and computer scientist. All of them profit from learning a common language that enables them to do things better together in a infrastructural way. This module is especially suited for learners that already have a sound knowledge of role and functioning of Research Infrastructures in the Digital Humanities. You may wish to go through the module Introduction to Infrastructures before embarking on this one.
