For over two decades, the DRHA: Digital Research in the Humanities and Arts (previously named: Digital Resources in Humanities and the Arts) has sought to interpret, define and explore the relationships between computing, the arts and humanities and wider society.
It comprises of a series of annual conferences whose goal is to bring together the creators, users, distributors, and custodians of digital research and resources in the arts, design and humanities to explore the capture, archiving and communication of complex and creative research processes. This includes: scholars, teachers, artists, publishers, librarians, curators or archivists who wish to extend and develop access and preservation regarding digitized information rendered from contemporary culture and scholarship; the information scientist seeking to apply new scientific and technical developments to the creation, exploitation and management of digital resources.
DRHA provides a context for stimulating, cross-disciplinary discussion and the generation of new ideas, resulting in many new networks and productive research relationships. The DRHA conference started at Dartington, and it was a development from the DRH conference series, which began at Oxford in 1997. Every year the conference moves to a different academic institution, which hosts and runs the conference.
