Smiljana Antonijević's study Voices from the Field examines transformations in humanities schoalrship brought by the use of computational methods and tools. As part of her research at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences and the University of Oxford, she carried out a seven-month-long study that involved more than twenty educational, research, and funding programs in Europe, Canada, and the U.S. Antonijević investigated how humanities scholars incorporate digital resources in their work; observed teams developing digital tools; examined digital resources use within university departments; and interviewed theorists, policy makers, and funders in the field of digital humanities. She will present her research findings focused on epistemological and methodological issues in digital humanities, and on challenges in developing digital tools and resources for humanities research.

Smiljana Antonijević is Assistant Professor of Culture and Technology at Roskilde University, and a researcher at e-Humanities Group of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. She holds a PhD in Rhetoric and Communication from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Antonijević's research intersects the area of communication, culture, and technology focusing on issues such as scholarly collaboration in virtual environments (MIT Press, forthcoming); digital humanities (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming,); nonverbal communication and affective computing (Routledge, forthcoming,); trust in online interaction (Fondazione Rinascimento Digitale, 2009); psychological aspects of blogging (Sage, 2008); digital rhetoric (Sage, 2008); new media use in the state of crisis (Peter Lang, 2004).
