The Digital Scholarship & Publishing Studio organizes, supports, and promotes a variety of events on campus related to digital scholarship. Please check back regularly for updated information on new academic and social events.

DH Salons

DH Salon is an informal, weekly gathering of faculty, graduate students, librarians, ITS staff, and others who are interested in digital humanities (and digital scholarship, more broadly). Salons take place each Friday at Joe’s Place (115 Iowa Avenue) from 5pm onwards. If the weather is nice, we’re likely on the back patio. If the weather is less than nice, we’ll be inside. If you’re looking to meet people in a relaxed, conversational atmosphere – join us! All are welcome

Share Your Scholarship

Each semester, the Digital Scholarship & Publishing Studio hosts a series of short talks in which Affiliated Scholars share their ongoing work. The talk’s degree of formality is left up to the speaker and time for Q&A is provided.

Share Your Scholarship: The Downtown Pop Underground, Wednesday, April 10th, 3pm, 1015A Main Library (Studio Classroom)

Professor Kembrew McLeod and Nikki White share The Downtown Pop Underground Online, a companion website to the book of the same title which examines the various art scenes that thrived in downtown New York City from 1958 to 1976.

Share Your Scholarship: UK Choral Composers Project, Wednesday, April 24th, 4pm, Voxman Choral Rehearsal Room

Professor Tim Stalter and Nikki White discuss the UK Choral Composers project, highlighting British choral composition from the 20th and 21st centuries, and featuring composer profiles and a database of their compositions and use of texts.

So You Want To…

The “So You Want To…” series offers faculty, staff, and students the opportunity to learn more about tools and techniques for getting things done in the digital realm. Each session is run by Studio staff or guest speakers and helps answer questions and foster conversations about particular aspects of digital project creation.
