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.

Shell Oil’s Deepwater Mission to Mars, Wednesday, October 16th, 4pm, 1015A Main Library

Associate Professor of History and Geography Tyler Priest will share his research and work on a website devoted to documenting and narrating the story of Royal Dutch Shell’s pioneering development of the Mars basin in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico (3,000 feet of water).

“Missing me one place, search another”: Recovering Walt Whitman’s Comrades Fred Vaughan and Bill Duckett, Tuesday, November 5th, 4pm, 1015A Main Library

In this collaborative presentation, Stephanie M. Blalock and Brandon James O’Neil discuss how their research in digital archives revealed significant new information regarding Fred Vaughan and Bill Duckett, whose lives beyond their association with the poet Walt Whitman have been little researched and remained a long-standing mystery.

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.

Other Events

Creating and Presenting Research Workshop, Thursday, October 31st, 12pm & Friday, November 1st, 9am, 1015A Main Library

Join us in the Studio for a workshop that helps you think about presenting your research posters as a fun and engaging opportunity for conversation and sharing your work rather than a stress-inducing last-minute mess that makes you feel vaguely ill. We’ll look at templates that are actually useful and a bunch of public speaking tips and tricks that will put posters and presentations in a new light. All students are encouraged to attend! RSVP for a session here.
