The Digital Humanities portal was created under research programme Memory in the Digital Age within Strategy AV21.
The intended objective is to provide access to an overview of information sources of institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences from a single location, and further, to create a shared environment offering the user easy orientation in various information sources in the area of research in social sciences and humanities in the Czech Republic.
The information part of the portal reflects current developments in digital humanities abroad, both with regard to scholarly events, pending projects or new publications which may be inspiring for the development of this field in the Czech Republic.
The ability to capture and propose potential partners for cooperation outside CAS’s facilities is a far from negligible side benefit of the portal. The portal helps clarify the status of processing of information sources of individual institutes and facilitates the choice of a suitable joint action for the building of an interdisciplinary research infrastructure in the area of social sciences and humanities.
