Training opportunities with COST-ARKWORK

COST Action on Archaeological practices and knowledge work in the digital environment (ARKWORK) is organising a Training school in Studying Archaeological fieldwork, knowledge production, and the digital environment in Athens, Nov 6-10, 2017. The call for trainees is open until July 3, 2017 and more information bout the school with instructions how to apply can be found at https://www.arkwork.eu/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Callfortrainees_Arkwor... Trainees can be awarded a grant of upto 800€ for covering accommodation and travelling costs. The school is open for everyone and both senior and early career researchers and practitioners are encouraged to apply.

COST-ARKWORK has also announced a call for Short Term Scientific missions (i.e. research/training visits in COST jargon) with a possibility to get funding for short visits to institutions in participating COST countries (check the ARKWORK website for participating countries) with an agenda that is relevant for the action.

Information Services and Digital Literacy provides an alternative perspective for understanding information services and digital literacy, and argues that a central problem in the age of the social web and the culture of participation is that we do not know the premises of how we know, and how ways of interacting with information affect our actions and their outcomes.
