Post-doctoral Researcher, School Of English And Digital Humanities
30 Months, Fixed-Term, Whole-Time Post Position summary The C21 Editions project (IRC/W001489/1) is seeking a Post-Doctoral Researcher with expertise in scholarly editing, digital humanities or relevant disciplines to make a significant contribution to its research activities. C21 Editions is seeking to explore and make a direct contribution to the future of digital scholarly editing and digital publishing. When academics mention "scholarly editions", they are typically referring to expertly curated textual resources or collections, designed to bring some sense of order or meaning to a particular set of materials. One of the major achievements of the digital humanities is the role its community has played in bringing scholarly editions to digital and web-based platforms, improving their research, pedagogical, and societal value through greater dissemination and access. However, despite all that has been achieved in the three or so decades since DH emerged, the digital scholarly edition is now in danger of becoming obsolete in an increasingly digital world. Most existing digital editions and publishing platforms mimic the structure of books, presenting static content in a page-based structure. This project aims to remedy that situation by engaging with experts and stakeholder groups in order to establish the methods and principles for developing the scholarly digital editions of the future. The specific aims of the project in which the successful candidate will be expected to participate include: Conducting secondary research analysis of existing digital scholarly editions, practices and theories; Producing a substantial white paper detailing the theoretical and technical state-of-the-art in digital scholarly editing; Participating in the development of high impact case studies prototyping new open standards for editing born-digital content and tools for computer-aided scholarly editing; Working with stakeholders to determine how public cultural institutions in possession of born-digital materials can better achieve their strategic aims; Explore how machine learning and computational techniques can assist in the production of annotated texts and resources; Establish User Design Groups of stakeholders who will participate in inclusive design workshops; Assist in convening an inclusive conference to discuss the possible futures for the field of digital scholarly editing and publishing; Undertake additional dissemination activities intended to increase the impact of the project and its outputs. The ideal candidate will have expertise in scholarly editions and digital scholarly editing or a relevant discipline, as well as a PhD qualification in a relevant field. A background in literary and/or cultural studies is also desirable. While not essential, the ideal candidate will be interested in the application of participatory research methods and have a familiarity with or willingness to develop skills in thematic analysis and design thinking. The successful candidate will be based in the Department of Digital Humanities at University College Cork (UCC), but will be expected to travel to and work with collaborators at the University of Sheffield’s Digital Humanities Institute. The successful candidate must be able to begin work in early January 2022. Project Title : C21 Editions: Editing & Publishing in the Digital Age Post Duration: 30 Months Salary: €38,630 - €45,942 p.a.
