Depicting Research in Humanities through Digital Environments

Porto 14th of June, 2022

At Casa dos Livros, Porto


The IIIF Reader is a tool designed for annotating and visualizing images through the International Image Interoperability Framework, this workshop aims at presenting and using the software.

This workshop is aimed at presenting the IIIF Reader: a digital tool designed for annotating and visualizing networks of images. Attendees are introduced to the needs that the digital tool is intended to tackle, and invited to test the platform. The goal is to discuss short- and long-term visions in order to develop the next version of the digital tool. The workshop is intended for scholars interested in annotating diagrams, and more general images, by exploring innovative ways of working at micro (details), meso (images), and macro (sets) scales.

The goal is to establish an atmosphere of exchange and fruitful application of interpretative theories about visual tools, using digital means. The added value of the IIIF-Reader Workshop is that it brings together code developers with specialists in visual tools analysis, to pursue updates in technical issues and user experience in parallel with theoretical enquiries, and to have the opportunity to reflect upon the results of the project From Data to Wisdom.
