A Series on Archives and Digital Humanities

The Digital Archives Research Group at USM, of which I’m a Co-coordinator, will be hosting a series of events this year on Archives and Digital Humanities. We’ve been planning the events all summer, and I’m excited to share our new poster, beautifully designed by Danielle Sypher-Haley in the College of Arts and Letters. As mentioned before, the series of events and workshops are designed to introduce USM faculty and students to the possibilities of working with archival materials in Special Collections. See below for a brief description of events.

Curious George Goes to the Archive

I’ll be hosting the inaugural event of the Arts & Letters’ Digital Archives Research Group next Wednesday, April 20, from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Building 101. This is the first in what will become a yearlong series of events introducing faculty and students to the possibilities of working with archives and special collections at USM.

Digital Archives Research Group

I’m pleased to announce that our proposal for a Digital Archives Research Group at USM has been awarded a small grant from the College of Arts & Letters.  As Co-coordinator of the group, I look forward to working with our team to raise awareness about the scholarly and pedagogical applications of digital archives.  See below for our proposal.

Rewiring the Classroom

As one of the co-organizers of “Rewiring the Classroom,” a forum on digital pedagogy for the college classroom,” I’m excited to report that everything is on track for Saturday. Registration is closed, the schedule is firm, the rooms are equipped, and now we just hope the snow comes quick and passes over by Saturday. Here’s a full description and our wonderful video news release produced with the help of DSPH at the University of Iowa. Thanks particularly to Adrienne Zimmer for her great work on the video.
