ICT Methods Network
The AHRC ICT Methods Network was a multi-disciplinary partnership which ran from 1 April 2005 to 31 March 2008, and was based at the Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) at King's College London. It provided a national forum for the exchange and dissemination of expertise in the use of ICT for Arts and Humanities research across the whole range of subjects covered by the AHRC. It focused on new developments and advanced methodologies, research processes, questions, and methods.
The ICT Methods Network was co-directed by Harold Short (Director, CCH) and Marilyn Deegan (Director of Research Development, CCH), and managed by Lorna Hughes. To ensure broad discipline coverage, the Network included senior academics as Associate Directors: Mark Greengrass (Humanities Research Institute, University of Sheffield), Sandra Kemp (Royal College of Art), and Andrew Wathey (Music, Royal Holloway University of London).
The Methods Network’s activities included a series of a series of expert seminars which explored key issues and disseminated their findings by means of published Methods Guides; focused workgroups; and workshops and seminars which further explored particular topics including those raised by the expert seminars and workgroups. A commemorative volume entitled The AHRC ICT Methods Network,was edited by Lorna Hughes, and published to coincide with the end of the funding period. It contains detailed reports on the Network's activities and an evaluation of its impact.
