the aftermath of the launch

By Claire S Ross, on 21 May 2010

We officially launched the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities yesterday! James Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corporation gave a brilliant speech with strong opinions on creativity, culture, and online content.

We are eagerly awaiting responses from cultural and heritage institutions, making the case for freely available digital content as opposed to the paid for model he championed by – as well as considering our thoughts on the matter. We are also seeing what we can do to facilitate that response. Watch this space.
