Digital Humanities Infrastructure Symposium

Thursday, Feb 23, 2017 - 9:00am to Friday, Feb 24, 2017 - 4:00pm

The digital humanities represent the cutting edge of humanities research and instruction, but they also represent a fundamental shift in the paradigm of humanities, from the model of the lone scholar to that of the interconnected team; and from the model of the durable paper publication to that of the digital, ephemeral product. Since the infrastructure -- including staff, resources, and services -- necessary to support these new models is very different from that required by older models of scholarship, academic partners are being challenged to evolve rapidly to support scholars in efficient and sustainable ways.

The Digital Humanities Infrastructure Symposium extends this year to a second day. Repeating the success of 2016, it will gather people responsible for digital humanities infrastructure at universities, colleges, libraries, and other scholarly organizations across California to discuss different approaches to these challenges. The goal is to learn from one others’ successes and galvanize further advances at all institutions.
