Open Scholarship in the Humanities: Insights from Graduate Students’ Digital Projects (RCR)

Open scholarship encompasses a range of activities and outputs that encourage inclusion, transparency, collaboration, and innovation. Though often interchanged with the term “open science,” open scholarship transcends disciplines. Research, teaching, and publishing in the digital humanities, for instance, has been designed and implemented in ways that promote accessibility, reusability, and more equitable engagement in scholarly work; and much of that work in turn relies on the ability to openly access and reuse content for future research.

This in-person panel discussion with four current and former graduate students explores their approaches to engaging in open humanities and their insights into what makes this work challenging, rewarding, and essential to scholarship. We’ll touch on practical and ethical aspects of conducting digital projects in the open, from using information created or collected by others to sharing our own research outcomes in ways that are accessible and reusable. This event will conclude with an open Q&A to allow for interactive discussion among the panel and attendees.
