The rise of digital humanities has pushed experimentation and change in scholarly writing and publication.
One such experiment led to the creation of Scalar (http://scalar.usc.edu/
) -- an open, multimodal publishing tool that allows for the creation of non-linear arguments, collaborative authorship, and tighter linkages between digital archives and the scholarship built from them. Given the changes such tools portend for how we discover, read, and create scholarly arguments, should we (and how can we) incorporate these tools into humanities instruction?
This talk is made possible by Duke University Libraries' Digital Scholarship Services department and The Edge: The Ruppert Commons for Research, Technology, and Collaboration, which is hosting a series of events at Duke in 2016-2017 on the theme of Open. With presentations, workshops, and project teams focused on open access, data, publishing, research, scholarship, science, and software, the Libraries offer an opportunity for the Duke community to discuss, learn, reflect, and engage in a changing scholarly landscape that promises to expand the traditional boundaries of academia.
