Humanists are often resistant to conversations about infrastructure, viewing it as a topic better suited to managers and technical experts. By undertaking a humanities-centered systems analysis of our infrastructure however, we unlock a range of technical, cultural and socio-political issues - and create opportunities to develop a global humanities infrastructure of massive value to future generations.
Dr. James Smithies is Director of King’s Digital Lab (KDL) at King’s College London. He was previously Senior Lecturer in Digital Humanities and Associate Director of the UC CEISMIC Digital Archive at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.
