Save The Date: Digital Seeds Fall 2019 Events featuring Julia Flanders of Northeastern University

Falvey Memorial Library is very pleased to announce our Digital Seeds speaker for Fall 2019, Julia Flanders of Northeastern University.

When You Think All You Have Is a Hammer, You’re Not Looking Closely Enough at Your Tools: Emerging Research Tactics for Humanities Scholarship

October 31, 2019, 4:00-5:30pm, Falvey 205

The Women Writers Project — a digital research collection focused on early modern women’s writing in English — was designed at a time when digital methods were in their infancy, and has evolved with the field of digital humanities. What kinds of research does such a collection make possible, now that digital methods are maturing and are taking root in humanities departments? What debates animate the ongoing development of collections like this one? How do the politics of digital tools manifest in these research spaces? This presentation will examine the Women Writers Project and the social and technical systems that support it, and also discuss the starting points and design agendas for institutions and scholars seeking to establish new digital scholarship programs. Light refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public.

Exploring Digital Humanities Pedagogy Workshop

November 1, 2019, 12:00-1:30pm, Falvey 205

This workshop will explore tools and strategies for digital humanities pedagogy that meet three challenging criteria: Do they offer genuinely illuminating engagement? Are they within our capacities as busy scholars and teachers? Can our institution support us in using them? We’ll discuss and experiment with some concrete examples, and share challenges and experiences. Open to Villanova faculty and graduate students. To sign up for this workshop, please visit https://forms.gle/uhRTCtS4SLmeURig9.

Julia Flanders is a Professor of the Practice in the Department of English and the Director of the Digital Scholarship Group in the Northeastern University Library. She also directs the Women Writers Project and serves as editor in chief of Digital Humanities Quarterly, an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal of digital humanities. She has served as chair of the TEI Consortium and as President of the Association for Computers and the Humanities. Her research interests focus on data modeling, textual scholarship, humanities data curation, and the politics of digital scholarly work.

Intro to DH video

On September 30, I presented an “Introduction to Digital Humanities” lecture to the Villanova community. I have now recorded a modified version of this presentation, now available online here.

Digital Humanities is an active and dynamic area of scholarship that brings together digital technologies and the humanities disciplines. This video provides some definitions of the digital humanities (DH), a look at some example DH projects, and an introduction to the Library’s digital scholarship work (through the Aurelius Digital Scholarship Initiative).

This video is only a brief overview. If you have further questions or just want to chat about DH, please get in touch! Just send an email to digitalhumanities@villanova.edu.
