Collaborative Digital Scholarship Projects: The Liberal Art of Drupal

Date: Thursday, December 6, 3:00-4:00 pm EST
Location: Hosted online via NITLE’s videoconferencing platform

Growing numbers of liberal arts colleges are creating collaborative digital
scholarship projects. Defining the roles of faculty, student, and web
developer in the semi-hierarchical world of liberal arts colleges—where
pedagogical goals must be constantly kept in mind—can be tricky; Drupal, an
open source content management system, helps small colleges manage workflow
and collaboration for such projects. In this seminar, members of the team
behind the text annotation site Dickinson College Commentaries
http://dcc.dickinson.edu/ (faculty director, web developer, and students)
discuss the problems, pitfalls, and opportunities of collaborating with
Drupal in a liberal arts context.

This seminar may be especially interesting to faculty, instructional
technologists, librarians, and others interested in creating collaborative
digital scholarship projects, as well as to faculty in classical studies
and other disciplines that emphasize text.

[from the Digital Humanities Summer Institute]

Hi Folks,

In response to considerable demand for training in Large Project Planning and Management, instructor Lynne Siemens (U Victoria) is working with DHSI, ETCL, and the UVic Library to offer a 2-day workshop introducing the basic elements of her DHSI syllabus. This offering will cover the basics of project management from project definition to project review upon completion. Topics such as budget setting and controls, risk management, critical path scheduling, software tools, and related Internet resources will also be discussed. Material will be covered through lectures, discussions, and case studies.

The workshop will take place 9.00 am - 5.00 pm Thursday 17 January and 9.00 am - 1.00 pm Friday 18 January 2013, on the U Victoria campus in McPherson Library 210.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and hosts, all spots in this workshop are made available via DHSI Tuition Scholarship, requiring only the payment of a small non-refundable administrative fee ($50 students, $100 non-students).

Spots in this workshop are limited, and anticipated to go quickly; please register early http://www.regonline.ca/DHSI-PrjPln .

Digital History Seminar

*Jason M. Kelly, 'An Ecology for Digital Scholarship'*

Tuesday, 4 December 2012, 5:15 pm (GMT)

Institute for Historical Research, Bedford Room G37, Senate House, South
block, Ground floor and live online at
HistorySpot<https://historyspot.org.uk/podcasts/ihr-live-stream>.

In 1969, Marshall McLuhan wrote that 'the literati find the new electronic
environment far more threatening than do those less committed to literacy
as a way of life. When an individual or social group feels that its whole
identity is jeopardized by social or psychic change, its natural reaction
is to lash out in defensive fury. But for all their lamentations, the
revolution has already taken place.'  This talk takes McLuhan’s comments as
its starting point to frame a discussion of digital history as both an
intellectual discipline and a socially embedded practice. Kelly argues that
the 'digital turn' demands that historians reconstitute their
discipline—not simply because of its methodological challenges, but because
digital history exposes fundamental weak points in the academic system.
Kelly focuses on the intersection of technology, cultural capital,
institutional knowledge, and systems of social power to critique historical
scholarship—both in its analogue and digital forms.
