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.

Thursday, October 4th: Lit City Project (As part of the Iowa City Book Festival), Time TBA, Iowa City Public Library Room A

  • Lauren Haldeman and Nikki White discuss LitCity, an interactive site exploring the haunts and hangouts of notable writers that have lived and worked in Iowa City.


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.

Thursday, September 13th: So You Want To Design A Research Poster, 3:30pm, 1015A Main Library

  • Come learn about effective poster design. ICRU students welcome!

Wednesday, September 19th: Situate Yourself As A DH Scholar, 2:30pm, 1015A Main Library

Monday, November 12th: Creating Digital Archives & Careers in the Digital Humanities, 11:30am, 1015A Main Library

  • What goes into creating a commercial digital resource? Which careers use DH skills outside of the university? Ben Lacey, Academic Outreach and Product Specialist will lead a discussion about the work that goes into creating digital archives and interactive online tools. The talk will also cover alt-ac careers in this area.
