DRC Interested Members
University Lecturer in Social Anthropology
My research focus is on gene environment interactions in human disease.
Ebers and J Knight Groups Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics
DPhil student in Archaeological Science, based at RLAHA.
My current research interests consist of scientific techniques in archaeology, including residue analysis and particularly that of plant resin, the archaeology of Oceania including Australia, and also South-East Asia, and prehistoric technologies and human adaptation across the world.
Though formally retired from Oxford after 30 years at OUCS where I established and ran many projects and services in Humanities Computing, not least the British National Corpus, the Oxford Text Archive, the Text Encoding Initiative and others, I am still active in this area as a consultant. At present, I am providing the French Digital Humanities infrastructure initiative called TGE ADONIS with a service promoting better understanding and take up of standard text encoding techniques. I am also working with a European project called AGORA, coordinated by Manuel Dries.
History Faculty: digital life writing, historiography, narrative, games and visualisation.

I work in an interdisciplinary area of research as I am working on e-Government technologies. My affiliation is with the Dept. of Politics and International Relations, however my research is supervised by the Oxford Internet Institute and my PhD is in Computer Science. Currently my research is focused on citizens' engagement with e-Government, while my PhD is focused on transnational e-Government systems.

Dave de Roure
Professor of e-Research, OERC
I am currently working on an Electronic Database of Poetic Form, which will encode texts currently available on Early English Books Online in order to provide searchable data on form, eg. metre, rhyme scheme, generic title for (initally Renaissance) English poetry. I have a methodology article here http://appositions.blogspot.com/2010/05/ben-burton-elizabeth-scott-bauma... in case you are interested in reading more! I am working on this with a colleague at St Cat's and we have just won initial funding from the John Fell fund and undergone text encoding training in order to begin the pilot phase of the project. I'd be interested in all kinds of discussion about digital research, but perhaps especially its use in the arts, funding opportunities, and sharing wisdom on these.

Lectures and Seminars27 - 28Apr AprThe Korrigan Consort Presents: Hunger & Judith TriumphsSaturday 27 April - 7:30pm to Sunday 28 April - 9:30pm
The Korrigan Consort is thrilled to present a spring double-bill, featuring Joanna Ward’s Hunger and Antonio Vivaldi’s Judith Triumphs.
Two tales, two women, two troubled souls. One, an artist struggling to form her identity as a creative, a woman, and a mother. One, a noblewoman with the weight of a nation on her shoulders, rebelling against the expectation of women to sacrifice. Both struggle under the thumb of patriarchs and patriarchy, with stories reaching across time.Lectures and Seminars30 - 30Apr AprImagining MadnessTuesday 30 April - 1:30pm to 5:30pm
How has madness been perceived and represented by composers, biographers, medical professionals, and people who have experienced it first-hand? How should we conceptualise madness as scholars? This interdisciplinary colloquium features various speakers, and aims to give researchers who are interested in this subject an opportunity to meet one another, hear about each other’s work, and to discuss the challenges of writing about experiences and perceptions of madness and mental illness.Lectures and Seminars30 - 30Apr AprAsian Treasure Traditions SeminarTuesday 30 April - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
