The next lectures in the e-Science in the Arts and Humanities Theme (see http://www.ahessc.ac.uk/theme) begin next week. The Theme, organized by the Arts and Humanities e-Science Support Centre (AHeSSC) and hosted by the e-Science Institute in Edinburgh, aims to explore the new challenges for research in the Arts and Humanities
and to define the new research agenda that is made possible by e-Science technology.

The lectures are:

Monday 2 July: Grid Enabling Humanities Datasets

Friday 6 July: e-Science and Performance

Monday 23 July: Aspects of Space and Time in Humanities e-Science

In all cases it will be possible to view the lecture on webcast, and to ask questions or contribute to the debate, in real time via the arts-humanities.net blog feature. Please visit http://wiki.esi.ac.uk/ E-Science_in_the_Arts_and_Humanities, and follow the ‘Ask questions
during the lecture’ link for more information about the blog, and the ‘More details’ link for more information about the events themselves and the webcasts.

AHeSSC forms a critical part of the AHRC-JISC initiative on e-Science in Arts and Humanities research. The Centre is hosted by King’s College London and located at the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) and the AHRC Methods Network. AHeSSC exists to support, co-ordinate and promote e-Science in all arts and humanities disciplines, and to liaise with the e-Science and e-Social Science communities, computing, and information sciences.
