Dear colleagues,

The DH2020 virtual conference began earlier today, with over 950 registered
participants from more than 60 countries! Over 300 authors and co-authors will
be sharing their presentations via Humanities Commons
(https://hcommons.org/groups/dh2020/) this week. There is no schedule in a
traditional sense; rather, we have organized the presentations by
'Method' -- the ones the authors identified when they submitted their work
for peer review last fall.

If you would like to participate in the conference, we have extended
registration through the end of this week (Friday, 24 July). You should first
register at https://www.conftool.pro/dh2020/. Please note that registration is
free this year, thanks to a generous sponsorship from Gale, a Cengage company.
After registering, you will need to sign up for Humanities Commons and join the
DH2020 group. We have created a short guide at https://dh2020.hcommons.org/how-

Two of the primary goals of an academic conference are for presenters to share
their research and receive feedback and for participants to hear this research.
To this end, we are asking each DH2020 participant to read or view at least
three presentations during the week and to then comment on them. We have created
a tutorial on how to view and respond to a presentation in the
discussion forum

If you have questions about any of this, please write us at

Best wishes for a productive conference week!

        Subject: Online Public Lecture on Digitisation, Intellectual Property, and Restitution

Andrea Wallace (Exeter) on "Digitisation, Intellectual Property, and
Restitution: Exploring (more) equitable approaches to [digital] cultural
heritage management"

22 July 2020, 5.30pm - 6.30pm UK Time
Institute of Classical Studies

Digital is no longer a fringe or secondary area of cultural heritage
management. Yet restitution policies are rarely designed with the
digital aspects of restitution in mind, especially with regards to
intellectual property rights. This presentation will explore what
happens when we centre digital processes and intellectual property
rights management within repatriation and decolonisation initiatives, as
well as the risks raised by and negative impacts of neglecting them.

This event will be held online and permanently archived

The lecture is part of the Institute of Classical Studies 3D Summer School
