Research Seminar: The Leiden Statement on Datamanagement for Anthropologists

Monday 17 October 2016
Pieter de la Court
Wassenaarseweg 52
2333 AK Leiden
Data management

Anthropologists and other ethnographic researchers have important insights to add to the current discussion on data management that is taking place across research institutes in Europe. Last year a committee of the Leiden Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology proposed what could potentially be called the Leiden Statement on Datamanagement for Anthropologists. This Research Seminar will be the second round of discussion about the Statement, possible implications of various data management regimes and possibilities to share the Leiden Statement with other anthropologists in Europe.

Peter Pels will provide an introduction of the Leiden Statement and a short overview of the governance structures of ethical review in anthropology. Following that, we will hear from Janneke Verheijen, who has pioneered new ways of presenting “data” through forms of open access, and Erik Baehre who will share his experience with data management requirements in various funding schemes.

The Seminar will be followed by drinks at the Bamboo lounge.
