Digital Scholarship Open House

2019 Digital Scholarship Open House
Thursday, February 21, 12:00-1:00 PM
The Edge Workshop Room (Bostock Library 127)
Lunch provided – please register for planning purposes
At its annual open house Duke University Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Services department showcases some of its work over the past year. This year’s slate of speakers and projects offers a view into the lifecycle of digital scholarship – from organizing files and creating digital workflows for underlying research, to engaging audiences for the resulting scholarship – and the often highly collaborative nature of that work. Whether you are looking to learn more about digital humanities or want to start your own project, join us for lunch and conversation with this cross-disciplinary and cross-professional panel as they discuss the motivations behind their projects, the people and work involved in realizing it, and the insights and skills gained along the way.

  • Christina Davidson (Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History, Harvard University) on digital file management and automated workflows that underlie traditional manuscript development
  • Luo Zhou (Department of International and Area Studies, Duke University Libraries) on analyzing interview transcripts using text mining techniques
  • Meredith Graham (Department of Music, Duke University) on building and improving engagement with an open educational resource through social media, surveys, and other outreach and assessment strategies
  • Hannah Jacobs (Wired! Lab in the Department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies, Duke University) on creating modular, scalable approaches to teaching DH tools and digital literacies as part of Duke courses 

Sponsored by Digital Scholarship Services, with special thanks to our co-sponsors, The Graduate School and the Department of History, for supporting the participation of Christina Davidson, 2017 PhD graduate of Duke.

Duke Libraries Digital Scholarship Services department collaborates with researchers in the humanities and interpretive social sciences, at any level of study, to plan and build digital research projects. We supply consultation on technical matters, project management, and best practices for a wide range of technologically-engaged research. We also encourage learning and experimentation in digital scholarship through exploratory projects, programs of hands-on instruction, graduate student internships, and resources and programming in The Edge / Murthy Digital Studio. For more information about this and other DSS events, check out our website at library.duke.edu/digital and subscribe to our announcement list
