Digital scholarship, one of the focal points of AMICAL’s recent Mellon grant, is often project-based and interdisciplinary. During this webinar Rayane Fayed & David Wrisley will present some characteristics of digital projects and take a quick glance at some exemplary projects. They will then open up the floor to discuss with you. What projects are you interested in? What projects might be most locally relevant? Are there such projects already being developed at your institutions? What are the benefits and challenges of working in a group on digital projects? The session will close with suggestions for next steps, including how to submit project ideas to the digital scholarship committee for feedback and further discussion.
This webinar, organised by AMICAL’s Digital Scholarship Committee, builds upon an unconference session that Rayane & David put together at AMICAL 2016 in Rome.
Who should attend?
All staff and faculty at AMICAL member institutions are welcome to attend this webinar. It is the first of several webinars planned to introduce the AMICAL community to different forms of digital scholarship. The webinar is designed as an overview for a general audience and does not require any prior technical knowledge.
It will be of particular interest to those already thinking about, or planning, a project that uses digital environments to enable new genres of interdisciplinary scholarship (digital exhibits, mapping, networks, crowdsourcing, etc). Subsequent webinars will delve deeper into specific domains of interest to the community.
What if I can’t make it?
This webinar will be recorded and made available to AMICAL members. Due to the nature of the webinar, it will not be listed publicly on the web.
