Events

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.

The Flint Water Crisis, Wednesday, October 28th, 2:00PM CST, Virtual Event

Louise Seamster is a sociologist whose research examines contemporary mechanisms for the reproduction of racial and economic inequality, especially in terms of debt, racial urban politics, and their intersection. This talk is based on ongoing work with her Flint Email Lab (a collaboration with the Digital Scholarship and Publishing Studio). Dr. Seamster will explain the lab’s research working with a large archive of state government emails, and give some early insight into what these emails reveal about the Flint Water Crisis. Dr. Seamster will also discuss how interested undergraduates can get involved with the project through an Applied Research class in spring 2021. Registration and Zoom link can be found here.

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.
