2nd Annual GW Digital Humanities Showcase
February 20, 2015
Gelman Library, Room 702
Are you launching a Digital Humanities (DH) project and figuring out the next steps? Do you want to meet other people in GW who are interested in how the arts and humanities interact with digital media?
We invite members of the GW community to join a DH Showcase at Gelman Library. Each person (or team) will present a DH project or endeavor (in any stage of its production). This event will provide a venue to introduce your project to other people and receive feedback or advice while also making connections with people across GW community who might share similar interests. We hope that new conversations will open up about methods, tools, challenges, questions, and possibilities arising across projects.
Our definition of DH is broad and can entail anything from a database or tool to a blog or creative work, and we welcome presentations integrating online media or digital cultures into teaching in (or beyond) the space of the classroom.
If you are interested in taking part in this event, please contact Prof. Jonathan Hsy (Co-Director of the Digital Humanities Institute) at jhsy at gwu dot edu with your name, email, affiliation/title, and title of project(s) by January 10, 2016.
You can also find more information about the first DH Showcase at GW, check out this blog posting with previous schedule and abstracts.
It’s Open Access Week at GW (and nationwide)! Here’s a message to GW faculty about some events underway this week from Dolsy Smith, Humanities Librarian & Interim Coordinator of Research Services at Gelman Library.
On October 21 and 27 the GW Libraries will host two Open Access Salons: coffee hours for faculty to learn more about Open Access at GW and about GW’s new institutional repository, GW ScholarSpace, which we have recently launched in support of the open access resolution and in an effort to take the lead on campus in making GW scholarship accessible to a public audience. Drop by to chat with a member of the GW Libraries Scholarly Communications Committee and, if you have time, stick around for a brief presentation.
As you may know, the faculty senate approved a new open access resolution for the university in February, and the GW Libraries have been working ever since to put the structures in place for faculty participation. The events during OA Week are designed to offer you an opportunity to learn more about how to protect your rights, preserve your work, and increase the impact of your scholarship.
Learn more about Open Access Week events by visiting our website, go.gwu.edu/oaweek.
If you cannot make it in October, don’t worry! Open Access Week will be the kick-off for a campaign to share information about Open Access publishing with faculty and students across campus. If you have ideas for events, or would like me to come speak to you or your department, please let me know.
