Dear all,

I want to let you all know about the new digital humanities project, the AEOLIAN
Network ( (Artificial Intelligence for Cultural
Organisations). The project is funded by the New Directions for Digital
Scholarship grant from the US National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and
the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). AEOLIAN is designed to
investigate the role that Artificial Intelligence (AI) can play to make born-
digital and digitised cultural records more accessible to users. The project
will make a ground-breaking contribution to this field through carefully-
structured workshops, innovative research outputs, and the creation of an
international network of theorists and practitioners working with born-digital
and digitised archives. Please visit for more

We are hosting an upcoming online workshop for the project and we would like to
share some details with you:
