We are happy to announce that on March 13 we will be holding our annual digital scholarship retreat for the University community. The goal of this event is to build a digital scholarship community on campus and promote the exploration of practical issues in the field.
At DSR 2014, we explored how to define digital scholarship at the University. For DSR 2015, we hope to facilitate dialogue on project management: the ideation-to-implementation phase of digital scholarship (DS). Using existing DS projects as cases, we will focus on successes, roadblocks, and lessons to learn for the future. As part of facilitating future DS projects, we will produce a collective directory of campus resources (both human and technological) as a deliverable of group work.
This year’s retreat is sponsored by the Institute for the Humanities and MLibrary. Our invited speaker is Brandon Walsh, Ph.D. candidate in English at the University of Virginia, former Praxis Fellow at the Scholars’ Lab, and NINES project manager.
We hope you will join us in this opportunity to learn about digital scholarship here at the University, and help support ongoing and future projects. Come to meet, plan, and network with others who are interested in digital scholarship projects. (Also, free lunch!)
