The Scholarís Dashboard project is a series of workshops teaming humanities scholars, librarians ,and technologists in discussions to consider major challenges in the digital humanities: how can we best work across multiple digitized or born-digital collections? What tools, interface, and features would best help humanists explore digital collections? Our theme for the April 4 and 5, 2013 workshop is "identity and social networks." How can we best analyze and visualize the chronological distribution and dimensions of the objects in our collections, of their creators, and their content?
Weíre looking not only for humanists and librarians who have extensive experience in the digital humanities, but also for those curious and willing to talk through the challenges that we face in making Ohioís digital resources accessible and useful to humanities scholars of all levels of expertise.
This workshop will be held at Ohio Supercomputer Centerís Bale Conference Room and Theater on April 4 and 5. Participants will be provided with a parking pass and up to $100 in travel reimbursement. Participants must be either Ohio residents or be affiliated with an Ohio college, university, or library.
To participate, please send the following information to Andy Schocket, project manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org: name, C.V., and a brief statement of interest by March 15. Should there be more applicants than is availability, applicants will be chosen so as to provide a range of interests and experience. Please also direct any questions to Andy Schocket.
