Please join us to give your input on Thursday, 2 April, in the Third Floor Lounge of the Grad Club. Let us know if you plan to come here.
Is your research related to the Humanities or the Arts? Are you practicing or interested in practicing your scholarship in the Digital Humanities (DH)? Do you have a project idea that you need technical, skills-based, or community-based support for? Are you thinking about a DH-related research project, but you are not sure what kind of support is available for you? Do you wonder if your project or idea could be a DH project?
The Demystifying Digital Humanities Initiative invites students, teaching fellows, adjunct instructors, faculty, and staff to an informal brainstorming session about DH needs on campus. Please join us on Thursday, 26 March at 2:00pm at the Grad Club to discuss resources that you’d like to see on campus, barriers you’ve experienced to your work, and resources that the Initiative can work towards providing.
The Initiative will have hosted three events this semester, and we’d like to shape the future of the Initiative around what the DH community at Queen’s needs. The Demystifying DH Initiative is a group of humanities scholars at all levels of their career. The Initiative seeks to support collaboration amongst scholars and students; provide opportunities for emerging and established Digital Humanities practitioners to showcase and build upon their knowledges; and facilitate community at Queen’s Campus, at its satellite campus at Herstmonceux Castle, and in the broader community.
The Digital Humanities (DH) is an emerging field concerned with investigating the intersections between digital culture, technology, and traditional arts and humanities disciplines. It includes using digital tools (such as visualization or textual analytics) to address humanistic questions, and applying the skills of critical analysis native to humanities disciplines to the study of contemporary digital culture, both scholarly and popular.
