Abstract

This session will feature perspectives on digital humanities from presenters at two different institutions:

1) How Scaffolding Saved the Day: Integrating Omeka into Classroom Curricula

This presentation chronicles a university’s journey to bring digital exhibiting into classrooms across the curriculum. What began as an idea for a different kind of class project became an opportunity that invites students to embrace humanities in a new light and present it on a world stage. While the experience of curating digital exhibits using Omeka transformed the student learning process, it brought numerous challenges to library staff. To overcome these challenges, the presenters embraced flipped-classroom methods and developed a scaffolded approach to providing instruction throughout the semester. Presenters will offer suggestions for developing scalable and sustainable digital humanities projects that engage students and faculty in digital literacy and demonstrate the value of new and different, outward-facing alternative research projects.

2) New Ecologies of Collaboration: Digital Humanities and Renaissance Drama

This presentation on the current state of DH + Renaissance Drama Studies will address the way that DH is changing the field by raising the profile of collaborative research methods and projects, and will explore emerging models for collaboration between scholars and librarians.
