Trust and Authority in the Digital Age

University of Birmingham/Trinity College Dublin Digital Humanities Network

The University of Birmingham and Trinity College Dublin Digital Research Partnership is a network of scholars who seek to investigate some of the key questions of humanities research in the digital age.

The central theme of the network is "Trust and Authority in the Digital Age". Emerging from our complementary expertise in digital scholarly editing (Birmingham) and Digital Humanities (Dublin) we research the question of how a critical digital humanities can address the crisis in trust mechanisms which has accompanied the expansion of the digital world.
