Humanities in the digital age: infrastructure for Australian literary studies, publishing studies, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies (2012–2013)

Abstract:
AustLit is a central element of Australian humanities research infrastructure and internationally recognised in a broad range of fields within literary, narrative and print culture studies. The aim of the proposed infrastructure development is to build AustLit's comprehensiveness through its research communities (in 2012: periodical publication, popular fiction, literary networks, Indigenous cultures, languages other than English) and complete a fundamental restructure of AustLit's underlying technical architecture to facilitate implementation of Open Access and Open Scholarship principles. This will enable AustLit to expand its leadership in digital humanities and allow much wider participation in data interrogation and content creation.
