Digital Scholarship at Vanderbilt is broadly defined and library support is project-oriented. This webinar will offer three examples of digital scholarship projects at Vanderbilt and the libraries role in supporting those projects, as well as scholarly communications services in support of digital scholarship.
Digital Scholarship for Comparative Media Analysis and Practice: Madeleine Casad, Senior Lecturer, Cinema and Media Arts, Associate Director, Vanderbilt Center for Digital Humanities. Vanderbilt University recently established a new joint-PhD program in Comparative Media Analysis and Practice (CMAP). Madeleine will speak about Library collaboration in CMAP’s intensive summer programs, where students gain most of their digital scholarship skills.
Hannah Arendt: Complete Works. Critical Edition. Digital and print. Ramona Romero, Librarian for Anthropology, Philosophy, and Classical and Mediterranean Studies. Ramona will discuss the digital component of this hybrid edition, which will include diplomatic transcriptions of Hannah Arendt’s published and unpublished works in TEI-XML.
Tiny Data Working Group: Veronica Ikeshoji-Orlati, CLIR Postdoc Fellow. Tiny Data is data for the qualitative analyses which characterize humanistic inquiry, the documentation of personal interactions with the observable world. The group meets once a week during the semester to investigate software and other digital tools as well as discuss theoretical implications of approaching data from a Tiny Data perspective.
Scholarly Communication as support for Digital Scholarship: Elisabeth Shook, Copyright and Scholarly Communications Librarian. Elisabeth explores concerns associated with the long term storage, preservation, and access to digital projects. She will discuss strategies to reach out to practitioners to encourage and educate them to think beyond the finished project to how it will be shared and preserved.
