        Subject: Digital Humanities Scholars in Museums: Crowdsourced Video Panel, 3 November
        In-Reply-To: <4E8FF1AA.4060700 at lett.unipmn.it>


Dear Colleague,

I seek your participation in my crowdsourced video panel entitled, “Philosophical Leadership Needed for the Future: Digital Humanities Scholars in Museums,” for the 39th Annual Museum Computer Network Conference in Atlanta, Georgia November 16th – 19th.  Boundaries between museums, libraries and archives continue to blur in the 21st Century. This panel seeks to learn from the progress made in academic and library communities to empower museums with the vision needed to serve constituents in a new media culture.

Panelists are asked to contribute 1-5 minute video responses via YouTube to the following questions:

1.     How can museums advance beyond the continuation of traditional practices utilizing digital tools to a new mode of interpretation that seeks to understand the meanings of collections and scholarship in a new media culture?

2.     What is required of museums to establish digital humanities research centers within the framework of existing institutions?

3.     Why might interdisciplinary and non-traditional scholars from outside the established professional ranks make the best leaders needed for inspired change in the philosophical directions of museums?
The open call format is for both attendees and non-attendees, if you will not be attending the conference, please see this as a great opportunity to contribute to the Museum Computer Network program.

Videos must be submitted by November 3, 2011.

This is the link to the panel page on the Museum Computer Network Conference Wiki (http://www.mcn.edu/2011/philosophical-leadership-needed-future-digital-humanities-scholars-museums).

The instructions on how to contribute to the panel are listed below.  Please share information about this panel with other colleagues.  If you have any recommendations of books, articles or blog posts that might be of interest, please include those references in your e-mail notification.  Contact me by e-mail at neal.stimler at gmail.com<mailto:neal.stimler at gmail.com> or on Twitter @nealstimler if you have any questions.  Thank you for your time and consideration.

P.S.  I will also be hosting general discussion as part of the THATCamp MCN unconference taking place on Saturday, November 19th (http://mcn2011.thatcamp.org/09/12/digital-humanities-scholars-leaders-needed-for-the-future-of-museums/).

Abstract:
Museum technologists have successfully supported the creation and delivery of content produced by curators, educators and librarians. However, many museum administrators and boards have yet to recognize the importance of scholarly study of their own institutions in the context of an evolving digital society. The support of digital humanities research in the academic and library communities over the last several years has not yet been adopted to the same degree in museums.

Session Description:

This crowdsourced panel session will present 1-5 minute video responses from an open call to the community of professionals in archives, libraries, museums and universities as they reflect on the barriers and benefits of implementing digital humanities methodologies in museums.

    *   Question 1:
       *   How can museums advance beyond the continuation of traditional practices utilizing digital tools to a new mode of interpretation that seeks to understand the meanings of collections and scholarship in a new media culture?
    *   Question 2:
       *   What is required of museums to establish digital humanities research centers within the framework of existing institutions?
    *   Question 3:
       *   Why might interdisciplinary and non-traditional scholars from outside the established professional ranks make the best leaders needed for inspired change in the philosophical directions of museums?

Dear humanists,

Best regards,

Le séminaire "Édition savante et humanités numériques" est un 
cycle de conférences complémentaires de l'École des hautes études 
en sciences sociales. Il a lieu de novembre 2011 à juin 2012, le mercredi de 18 h à 20 h,
à l’Institut national d’histoire de l’art, 2 rue Vivienne, 75002 Paris,
salle Walter Benjamin.

L'édition savante vise la mise à disposition d'un corpus en vue de 
son étude. Les problèmes et les promesses de la réinvention des 
pratiques dans un environnement numérique rendent fondamentale une 
réflexion sur le devenir de la philologie.

Ces douze séances font alterner trois cycles : analyse d'aspects 
décisifs à partir d'un corpus d'éditions électroniques ; lecture 
de textes majeurs des "digital humanities" ; situation de la France dans 
le champ des humanités numériques.

Voici le programme prévu, qui est susceptible d'évoluer en fonction 
des participants.

Toutes les personnes intéressées sont bienvenues, quels que soient 
leur spécialité, leur statut et leur pratique de ces technologies 
toujours nouvelles. Ce séminaire de recherche est conçu comme un 
lieu de partage non seulement des connaissances, mais aussi des 
expériences et des questions.

Le carnet de recherche en ligne "Philologie à venir" accompagne les 
conférences (http://philologia.hypotheses.org).
