Genealogies of Knowledge - Developing Anthropological Middleware to Support Fieldwork-based Social Science


The main aim of the project is to design, implement and deploy support for components of key research processes in fieldwork based social science. In particular, we will address general support of bibliographic research (references and full text extracts), interactive collection and aggregation of data within the fieldwork segment, access to and aggregation of external data from the field site, and aspects of consolidation, analysis, modelling and dissemination from the institutional base. We will accomplish this by developing gridable XML resources for project description, logic to interpret these and applications based on the logic and data structures. In particular we are interested in extending the grid concept to all data sources to provide more flexible tools for accessing and utilising these data in a wide range of contexts.
