Friday November 2, 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Levinson Auditorium, Yale Law School
In the humanities and in the social sciences, technology is radically transforming scholarly practice. In light of these developments, scholars are posing new questions as technology continues to alter the horizons of research, knowledge dissemination, public engagement and teaching in unanticipated and sometimes disruptive ways. This forum will examine how scholarship and its supporting institutions might face the upcoming challenges and opportunities of an open, digital and networked environment.
On November 2, 2012, under the aegis of the Yale University Library, three world leaders in digital scholarship will explore the implications of computing and communications technology for the humanities and the social sciences. Together with members of the university community, they will inaugurate a conversation (to be continued in the spring) on the new directions for digital scholarship and the transformative, dynamic and innovative role Yale might assume in this rapidly changing scholarly landscape. Yale University Librarian Susan Gibbons will introduce the forum and a number of innovative digital scholarship projects from across the university will be featured.
Keynote Speakers include: Tom Cramer, Associate Director of Digital Library Systems and Services, Stanford University; Ray Siemens, Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing, University of Victoria; Claire Warwick, Professor of Digital Humanities, University College London.
Respondents include: Michael Dula, Chief Technology Officer, Yale University Library; Ken Panko, Manager of Digital Humanities and Instructional Technology, Yale University; Laura Wexler, Professor of American Studies & Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, Yale University.
The forum is free and open to the public. For more information and to register: http://digitalscholarship.commons.yale.edu/
