Please join faculty colleagues on Friday, November 4, in 301 Reynolda Hall from 3:00-4:00pm, for a special DH Kitchen/Humanities Conversation session on Assessing Digital Humanities Scholarship. Following up on Todd Presner’s October 18th guest lecture, we will discuss ways to support and facilitate digital humanities research within academic departments.
Presner’s lecture, “Assessing Digital Humanities Scholarship: Challenges, Opportunities, and Perspectives,” proposed a series of considerations for determining how digital scholarship advances the state of knowledge in a humanities field. Presner provided a flexible model for assessment by outlining tandem solutions for both scholars and committees to establish best practices for conducting, documenting, conveying, and evaluating digital humanities research.
We invite all faculty, from DH veterans to DH newbies, to participate in a discussion of potential applications of this digital humanities assessment model at Wake Forest.
Our goalThe DH Community is a program of Wake Forest's Humanities Institute. We are faculty from across campus interested in investigating the emergence of digital humanities as a field of study, and its relevance and usefulness as a research and teaching tool in the humanities.
Join the conversation!
