Announcing the 2020 Digital Seeds Lecture Featuring Whitney Trettien, PhD

2020 Digital Seeds poster

 

By Regina Duffy

The Villanova Community is cordially invited to the 2020 Digital Seeds Lecture featuring Whitney Trettien, PhD, Assistant Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania. Trettien’s talk, “Experimental Publishing, Then and Now,” will take place virtually on Thursday, November 5 from 4:00-5:00 pm via Zoom.

Please REGISTER HERE. Once registered, you will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting.

When we consider the role of the (digital) humanities today, we do so from within a fragmented field where the center no longer holds. This moment of creative destruction presents an opportunity to shift into a new register — one defined not by minute clefts between theories or methods but by a renewed commitment to how we compose and share our work. Specifically, how we publish — how we use media to make public the stories we spin about texts and their past lives. Drawing on her own experiments in creative/critical publishing (including most recently with the Manifold platform), as well as the deep history of writing with scissors and paste, Trettien will chart the politics, praxis, and urgency of digital publishing today.

To learn more about Whitney Trettien’s research, please visit her website at: http://whitneyannetrettien.com/

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.
