More than the eye can see: Digital Humanities spectral imaging

Building on advances in imaging technology, teams of specialists have refined spectral imaging capabilities and adapted them to meet the needs of cultural heritage and digital humanities (DH) research. Proven advanced spectral imaging equipment, techniques and work processes have become standardized tools to support cultural heritage studies of manuscripts, materials and objects. University College London and other institutions are advancing spectral imaging and digitization capabilities for cultural heritage studies. Advanced imaging systems allow studies of the overall object, as well as specific key areas of interest, with transfer of digital data to DH scholars, curators and conservators for further evaluation and study.

Digital Humanities and internet policy: the case of the Translation & Transliteration of Contact Information PDP Working Group

In this talk Chris Dillon will outline how his studies of Japanese and other languages gave him the skill set necessary to co-chair an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Policy Development Process working group.  The Translation & Transliteration of Contact Information PDP WG had representatives based all over the world from registrar, registry, IP, lawyer and other stakeholder groups. This is an example of how academic Digital Humanities can affect the development of the internet and have impact on sectors outside academia, and how other sectors can open up new areas for academic research.
