Eloise Govier is invited to participate in the AHRC UK-Ireland Collaboration in the Digital Humanities- Workshop Funded by UKRI Fund for International Collaboration.
The workshop will “bring together leading experts from both countries to explore the current environment of digital humanities and opportunities for collaborative research between the UK and Ireland in the field.
The workshop will launch a new research programme focused on UK-Ireland collaboration in the Digital Humanities for which the AHRC has received funding from the UKRI Fund for International Collaboration. It will play a key role in informing the thematic priorities to be taken forward through the programme and embedded within future collaborative activity – it is anticipated that a number of funding calls informed by the workshop will be launched shortly afterwards”.

Eloise writes: “I utilise digital devices in my creative practice, and I am actively contributing to discussions in digital archaeology and education. I have a particular interest in the utilisation of digital devices in Higher Education, and actively embed digital strategies in my teaching. I have researched multisensory, collaborative, and experiential learning and have conducted research that explored blended learning environments and learning with smartphones. This research utilised the theoretical underpinning of my PhD and autoethnographic research with digital devices, and was published in the Journal of Posthuman Studies: Philosophy, Technology, Media' (Govier 2019a). Broadly, in this research I explored how humans learn whilst engaging with personal assistants in smartphones. As an artist and theorist actively working with digital technology, I am interested in the different types of material engagement digital artefacts afford, particularly from an archaeological perspective”.
