Listen back to John Unsworth’s keynote from the DARIAH Annual Event 2020

Twenty years after John Unsworth first formulated scholarly primitives as a set of recursive and interrelated functions that form the foundations of research activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras, his keynote is revisiting and freshly interrogating both the notion and the scope of scholarly primitives. To what extent does this particular set of scholarly primitives still correspond to our understanding of what humanities scholars do on a day-to-day basis? Has our understanding of research workflows changed over time significantly enough to require a new classification?

The keynote was recorded on November 10, 2020, at the DARIAH Virtual Annual Event 2020. John Unsworth is the University Librarian and Dean of Libraries at the University of Virginia and a Professor in the English Department.
