CHAT/DSC Digital Scholars Presentations
Tue, Apr 12, 2016 | 10:00 am
The six graduate student participants in the 2015-16 Digital Scholars Program will present their final projects on Tuesday, April 12, from 10:00-11:30 AM in the Digital Scholarship Center, on the lower level of Paley Library. The interdisciplinary program trains graduate students in digital research techniques, culminating in the completion of their individual research projects.
Students in the program come from different disciplines each year and their projects range widely, with interests in social protest movements, police brutality, Renaissance churches, modern printmaking, community organizing, and nineteenth-century exploring expeditions. To do research in these areas, the students employ social media analysis, 3D modelling, digital mapping, and textual analysis. Now in its third year, the program currently includes students come from History, Art History, Media Studies, African American Studies, and Anthropology.
Presentations focus on the digital methods students use to solve innovative research problems in the humanities and social sciences.
