WMS 415 (Williams Building, 4th floor, L off elevators)
The organizational meeting for Spring 2017 Digital Scholars will be dedicated to an introductory discussion (and potential complication) of issues and debates at various intersections of five central topics: art, archive, human, material, and network. While this meeting is primarily for graduate students enrolled in or regularly attending the group, all participants are welcome to read with us and join us for conversation:
- “Killing a Culture Softly,” by Mary Leigh Morbey [FSU access] [stable copy also in Bb org site]
- “Imagining: Creating Spaces for Indigenous Ontologies,” by Marisa Elena Duarte and Miranda Belarde-Lewis [FSU access] [stable copy also in Bb org site]
- “Developing Things: Notes toward an Epistemology of Building in the Digital Humanities,” by Stephen Ramsey and Geoffrey Rockwell. In Debates in the Digital Humanities, ed. Matthew K. Gold (online version: http://dhdebates.gc.cuny.edu/debates/text/11)
- “The Digital Future of Humanities through the Lens of DIY culture,” by Henriette Roued-Cunlife
Generally speaking, our readings for each session will reach across disciplinary boundaries; thus, if any of these pieces is difficult on first read, you might keep track of the following to help you get through it:
- The writers’ overarching project or stance, i.e., to what are they responding, or, what are they arguing for, writing about, promoting, or helping to re/define?
- How the project outlined in each text either raises or settles questions you might have about digital humanities, digital scholarship, or digital work in/across the disciplines
- Anything else that resonates.
See you in January!
