2011 Colloquium, University of Glasgow

Enroller's second face-to-face colloquium was held over February 25th and 26th, 2011 at the University of Glasgow where once again over 40 literature and language researchers from across the UK and Europe joined the team for the two-day event. Delegates were given the opportunity to test the portal and provide feedback on its functionality to the team.




Enroller's Network of Scholars (or NoS) are vital in providing feedback on the usability of the portal, and the team are keen to integrate their views and ideas into the portal's final design. This year's colloquium provided the NoS with an opportunity to hear from key data providers and offered a platform in which researchers could discuss further collaborative initiatives between current digital humanities projects. A full programme of the two-day event can be be downloaded as a PDF:
