Dr Tim Duguid

- Senior Adviser of Studies (Arts College Academic & Student Administration)
Timothy Duguid is a lecturer in Digital Humanities and Information Studies. His current research interests lie in the intersection between digital humanities and historical musicology. In particular, he is focused on metadata generation and curation for digital scholarship in music, working on a virtual research environment called Music Scholarship Online (MuSO) that will draw together published scholarship, digitized archival materials, and born-digital scholarship into a single online portal.
He has worked with Europeana Music to generate an RDF schema for digital projects in music that would be implemented in MuSO. This work builds on a 2015-16 Digital Humanities Start-up Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for which he was the primary investigator, working to establish basic standards for describing and evaluating digital projects in music.
He holds a PhD in music history from the University of Edinburgh in the area of early modern English and Scottish liturgical music, with particular focus on metrical psalmody. His work on Reformation history and early modern music resulted in the creation of a performing edition of the Wode Psalter, an early modern music collection, and he was the associate editor for the digital project “Letters in Exile: Documents from the Marian Exile”.
2017 Research Grant, “Interdisciplinary Metadata Frameworks: The MuSO Project," Europeana Research.
2015 Digital Humanities Startup Grant, "MuSO: Aggregation and Peer Review in Music," National Endowment for the Humanities (USA).
Tim is happy to consider PhD supervision in the areas of early modern British music and culture, music and religion, digital musicology, digital music editing, and digital curation.
