Using WordPress for Interdisciplinary Research - WordCamp Singapore 2016

Published on: Monday, 12 September 2016

Speaker: Hedren Sum

Research and scholarship are constantly evolving, becoming more collaborative and interdisciplinary. Supporting an interactive media-rich environment, WordPress is a versatile and easy to use platform to document and showcase interdisciplinary research that produces various types of research output.

In this talk, we will be sharing about a digital archive developed for the Digital Intangible Heritage of Asia (DIHA) research cluster at NTU College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.

This DIHA archive helps to engage different interest groups on intangible heritage which covers languages, festivals, cuisines and traditional craftsmanship. The research outputs, which include publications, photographs and datasets, are captured, organised, annotated and preserved in the digital archive.
