Collaboration on the interpretation and analysis of texts, images, artifacts, qualitative data, and other recorded information is fundamental to knowledge production in many disciplines. However, collaborators may have different goals, work routines, research paradigms and methodologies, background knowledge, and more. In this workshop, we aim to engage in collective exploration of how collaborative interpretation happens and brainstorm together on ways to develop knowledge infrastructures to support it. Each of us brings our own perspective to interpretation, which shapes our work in various ways. How do we ensure that everyone has a voice and is able to take an active part in the research?
This workshop is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in digital humanities, cultural heritage, and information science, including librarians, archivists, curators, and teachers, to share experiences and ideas about collaborative interpretation, engage in activities to stimulate our thinking, and emerge with takeaways we can incorporate into our own research. We may also form new collaborative relationships.
